Blessed…so blessed.


I have no words. When I started thinking about this research and contacting Kelly to make plans for recruiting research participants…I knew I needed at least 100 people to complete the survey.

I really wanted 500 (more people makes for stronger research).

I NEVER dreamed that almost 900 people (so far…its still up and collecting) would have taken my survey. I can not believe it.

I am so blessed to have the sorority connection with Kelly (we actually call them social clubs at OBU…and we were both Tri Chis) so that she would do this for me. I told her she has a sort of “Oprah Effect” (the “Kelly Effect” if you will) that she just has the power to influence so many others, and she does great things with that influence. One of those things being helping a little grad student do really cool research.

Also, because of her blog, I know several more people have started reading mine, and I want to welcome you all! I blog mostly about my life, a few random ramblings, and you will be seeing research updates (because I know a few of you want to keep up with the research).

For now, the survey is still running…and I wouldn’t be surprised if we hit 1000 at some point.

We are nearing finals, so I won’t get a chance to really play with my data until after Christmas. But that’s ok…I could use a good break.

PS. WORK UPDATE At work today, I was taking pictures of employees for the website…and I needed one of myself. At the point I was working on this project, everyone around me was either out or busy…so I had to set up the self-timer and take the picture of myself. Now, this wouldn’t be too strange, except you can see into my office from the service waiting area (I do Digital Marketing for a car dealership). So like three old men waiting on oil changes saw me stand up and smile and take pictures of myself.
I’m sure they thought I was neurotic and not very productive. ha!

Here is my lovely website headshot! ha!

And I also got to do some videos last week for our preferred owner programs. It was fun to do some video work. I am mostly putting the link here so my mom can watch it! (here you go Mom)
