Studying

Next Steps….Maybe

Next Steps….Maybe

As I continue to await my supervisor’s feedback, I can’t help but worry a bit. I recognize that he is likely overwhelmed with a large number of dissertations to supervise, and I’m sure he does have a summer vacation, but I need to know if I can proceed with the change in focus of my […]

Research, Research, Research

Research, Research, Research

While I await my supervisor’s feedback on my questions, I’m continuing to push forward with my research.

I guess we could say that my risk management strategy was […]
