How much you can gain from one weekend?

How much can you gain from one weekend? Watch two movies? Sleep more than 12 hours a day? If you go to the Rocky Gap retreat with Promise, you can gain a lot in a one weekend. I was in the dissertation house component. I could not continue my writing because I didn't know how to go on for my dissertation before I attended the dissertation house. Dissertation house mentors, expecially Dr Carter, put a sun shine to the road of my thesis writing. It is quite clear now what I should do in the next few months. Only one weekend, you can gain more with Promise.

good observation, Wenlong.I think DH component can really bring you a lot, especially when you feel confused during your thesis writing process.

But you might feel regretful that you have missed the GREAT rope course, which might surely make you feel breathtaking and exciting. HAHA~~~
