I have passed my prospectus meeting and received the "ok" to submit to IRB when I am ready.
I am to schedule my proposal meeting for August (which is quickly approaching and I'm not ready).
I have finished all my instruments and many of the changes requested during the prospectus meeting. Today I hope to work on my IRB form, which is crazy long and detailed. My goal is to submit it to my chairs for a review this week and officially submit it next week.
I have finished the game and sent it to two committee members to test out plus the HR contact. No feedback yet.
I continue to work on things on the weekend in my office where I can have no distractions
(like a 2-1/2 year old little girl!).
I love being able to work on my dissertation at my own pace. I know that a strict schedule would get me finished sooner but I'm not in a hurry. It will get done eventually and hopefully I'll walk across the stage summer 2019. Almost a full year later than planned, but so what? My stress level is so much better this way. I can cope. And perhaps my finished paper will reflect it.
No deep thoughts and reflection today. Just the facts.
