A week off and I feel a bit out of sorts, hence why I’m writing this today, Sunday, instead of on Friday. Sorry about that.

5 pages…23 pages…47 pages…54 pages…75 pages…89 pages…99 pages…107 pages…18 Appendixes…DONE, DONE, DONE!!!! Yesterday at approximately 1:45pm I was finally able to complete my master’s thesis. I felt as if a massive amount of weight had been lifted off of my shoulders.
