Celebrate and Come Learn

Completed the final course on ID theories! Yes! Yes! And Yes! Onward to generating my own theories and extending the research of others. Of course, I still have 2 more courses to wind down. But I'll get there. Multiple regression and fun stuff with SAS. My favorite course is of course the Social Action Research Course where I work in an interdisciplinary team with law students, lawyers, social scientists, bioethicist, sociologists, etc. Thursday and Friday will be our busy public event days.
