Thank you, thank you, thank you!

To anyone who was involved in organizing this trip thank you! I don't know whether it was being in a new place, or being separated from email, phone and other stresses in my life or whether it was just being somewhere in nature or whether is was just having some one on one time with Dr. Carter (although I have it with her regularly at school and don't make as much progress as I did this weekend). I have been struggling with the writing of my proposal for the past two month, and this weekend I finally saw what I have been doing wrong. Although I didn't accomplish all of my goals at DH (someone told me early on, I was probably trying to do too much) I broke down a barrier and I think now I will be able to be more productive and finish my proposal. Thank you, Dr. Carter, for your untiring dedication to our success. The same goes for Dr. Tull and the entire PROMISE staff.
