My Thesis Paper: Finally in the Home Stretch


My thesis isn't final yet, but I'm in the home stretch and I have to say it's a good feeling. I submitted my draft late Monday night or should I say early Tuesday morning. It all depends on which time zone you count it in. Shout out to Jessica and Karim for reviewing my 50 plus page thesis! Now I wait for feedback and approval from my mentor and adviser.

My two-year academic journey for my second master's degree is almost over. Unlike, Joffrey Baratheon, I'm ready for the end. 

Gonzaga's Communication and Leadership Studies Program was a good fit for me. I was challenged as a student and can see the benefits from this two-year educational experience. I have a greater appreciation for research and the role good data plays in my life. Whether its qualitative or quantitative there's a value in it. You just need to know what you're looking for.

I still have a few weeks before I defend my thesis, but I'm already thinking about what I will do with the free time I get back. There will be no reading of academic papers, journals and books to meet course work deadlines. I have so many television shows and films to catch up on via Netflix, but more important than that, I have a few scripts calling my name. I'm going to switch from academic writing back to creative storytelling. Holla! 

I also have a few projects to do around the house and school work will no longer be a viable excuse to the hubby. The home stretch is a sweet spot and am looking forward to the next chapter.
