The Monday after and Awesome Weekend!! is a snowy Monday. As I reflect back on the weekend, I can't believe how wonderful and productive it was! It seems that my experience at the Retreat gets better and better each year. It was great to see all my old friends and meet new ones. The saddest realization during my reflection is that this will be my last retreat, as I plan to graduate this year:( My experiences with my PROMISE family will be the most missed of my graduate school career.

So things that I have learned this weekend:
I need to be more focused on graduating.
I need to let go of activities not relating to the dissertation or survival.
From now until May, everyday will be a productive dissertation day!

Thank you, Dr. Tull, Dr. Carter, and Gloria for putting this Retreat together, and for everything you do for us! I know I would be lost without you all. May God Bless you always and forever:)
