Weeks 60 to 62 of 186 (BMAL716)

Weeks 60 through 62 of approximately 186 are in the books in my doctorate program.

School’s out for summer!

A couple of weeks ago I finished up my latest course. It was the first course since starting back to school in 2014 that I did not lose a single point in grading. It is also the only time since I started that I have had a bit of a break. It is hard to believe that I have been enrolled in a course every single term for the last seven years!

This break could not have come at a better time. As I type this, I am using one hand because last weekend I almost cut my index finger off at the base of my left hand. It has been a scary week and hopefully, the surgery that I had on Wednesday will fix everything and I will be back and ready to go when classes start in about five weeks.

The injury also means that I will miss the much anticipated executive leadership expedition but the folks at NOLS were very understanding and accommodating and allowed me to move my spot to next year.

All that being said, I am happy with my progress this term with my research project. I wrote a pretty good proposal and received great feedback from my professor. I hope to use this as my final dissertation project and look forward to seeing where the research takes me.

A lot of you have expressed interest in reading the final paper. As always, I have attached it below.

Also, Michele is starting her journey this week too and she is very excited! Please do me a favor and follow her over on LinkedIn.

Score: 200/200
