When looking over my blog, it occurred to me that I had not yet posted the bad news that came out of my proposal defense. Originally I was going to compare my findings within the LFR function and the bullying being performed to that of Witchcraft in Africa. Hence the title! I have done a decent amount of research regarding the way through which people in Africa, once considered a witch, are treated. However, since the professor who was suppose to be able to be my co-advisor was not hired on, (Which frankly is upsetting and I won’t go into the politics behind that…..but all I can say is grrrr.) I have had to drop that portion of my thesis that would have allowed a much smoother progression from my masters program to my doctoral program. So, I am rolling with the punches as nothing has seemed to go smoothly during this attempt for a graduate degree. At least I get to keep my amazing co-advisor who is listed on the consent form and keep going with my research! Onward and upward, as they say!
