Snowy Days

Hello everyone!  I have been busy with writing my thesis, but I decided to take a quick break and get a picture of me coming home from church to show you how I have been wearing my hair lately and the snow that we have been getting up here in MN.  The past several days have been nothing but snow, cold and gray weather.  At this time last year the temps were in the 60's and 70's.  Now getting above 45 degrees is a warm day.

Anyway, I have been natural for 20 months and my hair is measuring a little above 11 inches in the front and on the sides.  I have been doing a lot of wash n go's because I don't have much time to do much else and it's pretty.  I pray all is well with my blog friends and I hope to have more time once I have finished my thesis.

April 14 and several inches of snow.  Welcome to MN!
I'm meeting with my adviser this Wednesday to go over my rough draft.  I have to turn in my first draft April 30 for a grade for my research class and then I will be given more feedback to expand it into my full thesis which will be due this fall.  Then in December I will have to present it to the committee along with my action research project that I'm conducting now.  I'm taking this one step at a time and so far I'm proud of my progress.  I was the only one in my research class that had a completed first draft last week, so that tells me that I'm a little ahead of my classmates.  I've noticed that the older students with families and a mortgage (like myself) do the reading, complete the work (on time), and don't miss class.  I'm sending a lot of money to get my Master's, but it's not just the money.  It's the time away from my family and the hope for a better life that push me to do well.  Anyway, I have to work on my action research project write up so I hope to connect with you all soon.  Until next time...
