Really, Really, Really Good News!


Today, a MAJOR MILESTONE (which is kind-of like a leg lamp prize/MAJOR AWARD)... was reached in the progress of my Ph.D. Dissertation.

My Committee approved and signed off on the proposal section of the research... which outlines everything from my topic and hypotheses, my strategy for recruitment of participants for the research, the instruments for assessment, the selected statistical approach, etc.

VERY EXCITING! This pretty much means I get to FLY now... with confidence and a stamp of approval that my ideas aren't flighty, that they have academic merit... to just GO FOR IT!

Ohhhhhhhhhh yeah!!!!
