CAP: playing catch-up from earlier in the week

So, a week, no CAP entries… it’s not like work hasn’t continued, just life got in the way. We got to take Jack up to San Jose for college orientation, so publishing got pushed off to the side…

The current Master’s Program term ends on Sunday, which means the Capstone begins a week and half from now. Been reading the announcements and pre-briefing materials (as well as perusing the Writing Your Dissertation in Fifteen Minutes a Day course text), figure I’ll go along with the recommendation of keeping an online journal of the process.

For those of you who want to follow along, read it. For those of you who don’t want to (and, you know, keep it 100% Willy Shakes), skip it.

Don’t worry, there will be more Shakespeare entries… but you know… after the “vacation.”
