I went out of town for the weekend with hopes to de-stress before beginning this insurmountable feat. I must focus. This week I am going to finish my pre-proposal to turn into my mentor. I will also take it to another university colleague so I can have a better idea of what I am to do. The steps guide says it should take me 5 hours to complete. I am also going to get around to finishing the CITI module I am working on. I’ll say by next Sunday. I don’t know why the modules are taking so long, but it is training for IRB so get it done!
I bought some dissertation books to help me with the process and I checked a few out at the library. I started reading them last night. I want to read a chapter out of each one each night, but we shall see. By the end of the week I will need to have my backwards timeline done based on the school’s milestones and my steps to completion. I want to be done completely by next March, but if it happens to be April or May I’ll live.
