Being Professional

The Next Step

For the past year and a half, I’ve been working closely with a former professor of mine with some of her research. She’s been very busy continuing her work from her doctoral dissertation, and it’s really turned into quite a thing with several projects sort of spiraling out of the original data collection.

On top of that, at any given time, she tends to have one or two side projects with other professors and academics.

I started while I was still in grad school for some credit and experience, but stayed on because the experience was valuable. I was learning a lot about conducting research, particularly qualitative research.

Finally, though, on my end, it looks like we’ll have something concrete to show for our work. If all goes well, then fingers crossed we’ll be presenting our findings at a conference over the summer – and I’ll be listed as the lead author. Which is exciting for me, because that will be a first for me.

So, I dare to dream that this the year we see something concrete from all of our labors.

And that I do a good job, and don’t let anyone down.
