Beefing Up the Intro

Last week in class Dr. Zamora helped me come to the decision to remove the interview section of my thesis.  This was to reduce the stress of jumping through IRB’s hoops, and it was also too cut down the thesis a bit, as Dr. Zamora felt that including and analyzing interviews would make the thesis … Continue reading Beefing Up the Intro

Text and the CITI

At the end of our class meeting last week, I was given two main tasks for homework.  The first of these was to reach out to the OSRP department to ask about certain elements of the IRB process; the second was to write out a draft of the entire Introduction section of my thesis.  I … Continue reading Text and the CITI

The Conversations Are Over

The moment has arrived.  This is it!  It has taken me four years to get here, but I am finally finished writing my thesis.  I couldn’t be more happy with how it turned out (although I also ironically feel like I could continue working on it forever…there is sort of no end to this thing).  […]

Unearthing a Niche

I have been busy mining the Internet for resources, and I think I finally hit a rich vein!  When I switched my searches to the topic of art therapy, I came across a lot of relevant articles.  One of these articles in particular has helped me to kind of nail down the niche my research … Continue reading Unearthing a Niche

Switching Gears

I was fortunate enough to have two snow days this week and, consequently, I have no idea what day of the week it is.  It feels like a Sunday night, but somehow tomorrow is FRIDAY!!!! Woohoo!!! It was a dream to have hours and hours to work on my thesis in the past few days.  […]

Being Candid and Some Secondary Resources

(Here comes a big, extremely disorganized, almost-stream-of-consciousness paragraph about mental health stuff.  If you want to skip directly to the research … Continue reading Being Candid and Some Secondary Resources

The Icing on the Cake

In March of 2009, my family and I were interviewed by Storycorps.  The piece was included in a digital archive as part of the 9/11 memorial museum in NYC.  If you go there, clips of the conversation can be heard.  I recently reached out to the organization for an audio file of this interview.   […]

The Space Between

I feel like I’m really in a good place with regard to my creative component of my thesis.  I am loving the double-sided book idea Alan and I have been tossing around. Here’s what I’m thinking: Side A of my book,“Conversations With My Father,” begins with my death and travels backward to on 9/11.  The […]

You Can’t Make This Stuff Up…

Talk about a serendipitous moment!!! I was looking for a letter that my father wrote me a long time ago so that I could add it to my “conversations.”  Instead, I found a letter he wrote to my mom while stationed in Vietnam.  I haven’t seen it in about 10 years or so at least. […]
