May 6th, 2011.
Approximately 7:00pm CST.
I'm thinking Gallagher-Iba Arena on the Oklahoma State University campus.
I should be wearing something similar to this:
For the next few months, I will not be much fun, and I apologize in advance for that.
Ya see, I've started working on my dissertation.
Yep, I've made it to this point, and there's no turning around/stopping now, so my goal of earning a Doctorate of Education should be obtained by May...
Just wanted to give a heads up if I don't write as often, you'll know I've probably curled myself into a ball on the 4th floor of the Edmon Low library with stacks of academic articles surrounding me, with a most likely sleep-deprived twitch developing as I attempt to write the largest and most important paper in all of my life...
I began this journey in the fall of 2007, and I have a hard time believing I am to this point now as it does not seem that long ago I dove back into the world of higher education...as a student again instead of just a staff member.
But here I am. I can really see the end of this coming.
Good crap, I could not be more excited about that.
But I know it will be a long and difficult year. And I appreciate your support as I complete this.
So thanks ahead of time.
(soon!!) Dr. Kelsey Nuckolls
