The paper that lives outside of my comfort zone is finally close to completion. I’ve reached the point where I have to set it aside for a while so that I can read it again and I’ve been seeking input from others. Mostly this project was about shaking myself up. I’ve felt plateaued and lost a degree of enjoyment in the work that I was doing, to the point that I was questioning why I was bothering to finish a degree. Finding a culture and time that I didn’t really know much about, nor had I done any real in-depth research was helpful in finding my mojo again (to some degree).
