One more meeting of each class, and I am finished for the semester.
My thesis book project was approved for next semester, and I will begin crafting it when I go back to classes in mid-January. My last semester of college, finally. I've had a few setbacks, but I'm going to graduate.

I plan to put more of my thesis progress on this blog. Stay tuned for more, and thanks for reading!
