Thesis Progress

It's slow going right now.

That stack to the left of my computer keeps getting taller, no matter how much I read.
When I was in Richmond doing original research, one of the librarians said, "Research is a slog. Like trench warfare." Best analogy ever. I'm up to my elbows in mud, fighting to keep my head above the muck, dodging distraction shots from every direction. Some days are really productive, but most are underwhelming at best.

I moved onto a desk in the family room, and the light and the location and the view have helped. The best part is that Eve wants to be next to me, doing her scripture study or homework or her planner (every Sunday after church, without fail).
I charted out my research and proposal--I should have it ready to present to a thesis director in May.

As hard as this is, I love every second of it, and I'm already sad that this experience is reaching the end.
