As of a few months ago, my thesis is done done done! Paid for, bound, and on my bookshelf! It ended up being just about 100 pages, full of impressive looking charts and graphs, and an overwhelming amount of information. Since then I have done a research colloquium at CSULB, won 2nd place in a research competition, and submitted to the APA conference in Florida (which I did not win.) I have also taken this beast and turned it into an hour talk, which I presented at the Homeschool Association of California's annual conference early this august. It was really something for me - this is the community that helped me get my 1052 participants, and I loved being able to share it. I also conducted a round-table discussion about mental health and homeschoolers, which will play into my next steps: creating a private practice where homeschoolers are my main client base, and writing more articles.
I am DONE!!!!! I graduated!!!!!!! Woooohoooooooooo!!! 4.0 and a Masters of Science in Counseling baby!
