I received an email from someone very dear to me this morning that really grounded me and got my focus back to the real motivation of my research. She said… “– you should really start a blog using your knowledge gained from all these years of study doing your thesis combined with practical experience. I think
Got the edits done despite a medical emergency of a family member. Another step completed in the long road of articles, papers, chapters and documentation necessary for this journey!
