Upon reading Claire’s blog of reflection, I’ve decided to do the same. This has been a huge learning process, huge. First, I learned that research projects do not grow on trees, nor do willing survey participants, nor does valid data. Secondly, I discovered how important it is to enlist the right people to guide you on your research path. Thirdly, I learned how valuable the criticism and encouragement of other researchers is. No two minds think alike, and therefore, the more, the better. And finally, I’ve learned a lot about myself and my capabilities. I’m wrong a lot, and I have a lot of room to grow–this is a good thing–I think.
Today was filled with lots of writing, commenting, and postering. One week left!
