I hate writing this proposal almost as much as I hate people who haven't thought about their political views but still vote. Okay, so maybe it's not that bad. But I am super-frustrated with the whole process at the moment, mainly because I've been so busy unpacking, getting used to being in Texas again, and dealing with nasty plumbing problems that there hasn't been much time for writing.
My wonderful, fabulous research group was very helpful today, though. I still don't know how I'm going to get this to The Advisor by Monday, but at least I know what my problems are now. Thanks for the suggestions, y'all, and thanks friends and family for all of your encouragement.
