I have nothing new to report. See, I gave myself the rest of May off. I worked really hard during March, April, and early May, and I had a lot of stuff going on in late May. Then we got Cleo the cat. And I decided to redo our patio (we did not have one before. So technically I "did" the patio--I did some digging and leveling, and put paver stones down). And we went to a wedding. I can come up with some kind of excuse for every moment I've spent doing something other than working on my dissertation...but the fact remains: it's now officially the "late June" portion of my "taking the rest of May off." Whoops!
Anyway, it's time to buckle down. I hate to admit it, but summer is almost over. Well, not really. Hmm, sort of. Fall semester starts in mid-August. And we'll be gone for some time in there too on a vacation to Maine. Time to get cracking. The tedious part is the data entry, and I'm going to have to just sit down and do that. I prepared the SPSS spreadsheet and sent it to my advisor for review because I didn't feel excited about entering all my 300+ double-sided survey data and then having him tell me I forgot some dumb thing here or there. That'd suck. Lucky for me, Cleo is really super helpful.
Once I get the data entered, I need to analyze, look for patterns, and write. So that's my progress (or lack of). My advisor--by the way--tells me that "cat ate my dissertation" will not fly as an excuse.
