Well, my mentor just made the deadline of two weeks to return my proposal to me. She didn’t have too many comments, so I should be OK with making corrections. I have allowed an entire two weeks to go by without doing anything on my end. That is not acceptable. I am trying not to get overwhelmed, but it is a lot to handle. I hope to get back on track soon because I can’t continue to feel like I’m sinking. I don’t have anyone motivating me but myself right now. If I don’t push myself, who will? No one, but my mentor, seems to understand. I need the strength only God can give me. I also need a thick skin for the issues at this school. If I can make it in one of the toughest high schools in the county, I can make it anywhere. That may be why God brought me here.
To talk to me privately about this or any other dissertation-related issue, email me.
