Home Stretch

4 months of ethnographic research.

26 books.

Countless hours of consolidation and writing.

One unexpected major rewrite.

And I think I finally have my actual final draft. Not to be confused with the Totally Thought This Was Good Enough draft.

Now I’m just waiting for it to pass by my advisor. I’m nervous, exhausted, but mostly glad to have had this experience. It’s been truly incredible.

If you’d like to continue to follow my research, my defense will be at 10a.m. on Wednesday, April 25th. It’s open to the public. You can also comment or email me for a copy of my thesis.

Finally, I’ve started a blog that turns my research into bite-sized life advice for practical application.


Huge thanks to everyone who has helped me get this far!
