My proposal is finally starting to shape itself into something I can defend.  Trying to unlearn MLA in order to learn APA format has been tricky to say the least.  At least I know I’m closing in!  Aiming to defend within a month!

Fall semester 2013 started off Monday here at the University of South Alabama.  Just started and I already feel like I’m behind (and I’m only taking one hour of dissertation!)  My brain’s rather in a muddle, so here’s just a few things I have on my mind currently…

Tours will start from Jaguarland next week–I still have to figure out the exact themes and dates and, of course, I need to update all of the info in the Bay Boat to correspond correctly with the College of Education website.

On the upside, I need to send out big congrats to my guildies in the Inevitable Betrayal educators guild in World of Warcraft–over the past couple of weeks, they’ve snagged a handful of guild achieves for raids, questing, and fishing–so yay!  (Maybe once I get this dissertation proposal passed by my committee, I can rejoin the group and start slooowwwwly leveling my little characters once again.)

I’m still a bit disappointed to hear about Disney closing down several of its virtual worlds/games.  Toontown, Fairytopia and Pirates of the Caribbean Online are all going.

I actually really enjoyed those and felt pretty safe letting my nephews play them, so I wonder what will be coming down the pipeline, if anything.

I’m slowly working on the new site, in addition to major home renovations/repairs and such, as well as working on my dissertation proposal, getting it ready to defend.  If anyone finds this, thanks for your patience.  I’ll be back to blogging regularly soon (I hope)!
