    Hi DHouse!

    I’m on a bus to Hilton Head, SC and Savannah, GA to attend the 25th annual Gullah festival! I decided that in between naps (my friends call me Car Syndrome bc I fall asleep as soon as we start going), I will read stats and work on some chapter revisions.

    If i can finish an article or two and start addressing some of these critiques from my committee between the going down and coming back, I’ll feel really good! And like Dr. Tull said, if I make steady progress, I’ll be in good shape for CP Dissertation House. 😉 Oops, better submit that application or I might miss out…

    I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday weekend!


  2. Thanks for “stopping by” Alexis! We see your other comments in the Summer Challenge thread. . I like the theme of #TeamGetItDone! I’ll see you this summer at the Dissertation House at College Park!
