I am in the home stretch here when it comes to the edits on my proposal for my chair. Once I get the thumbs up from him, I can pass them on to my committee for their review. After that comes the proposal hearing.  By the end of the summer, I want to be in line to work on the data analysis over the fall and then finish up all the other requirements. I may not make my self-imposed December deadline, but I am completely on track for May 2013.

So I will be rather silent online over the next few weeks as I do this and do this big.

Wish me luck!
