So, you know how there are (about) three groups I’m studying for the dissertation, right? Well, the one I work with most often–the one where the leader of the group is *way* nicer to me than I think I deserve, and I’m not sure why, but it makes me simultaneously happy and anxious–called yesterday to invite me to a weekend-long event with them–next weekend! Whoohoo! I’ll be spending about 36 hours straight with them, which will be the most “immersion” I’ve gotten yet. I’m pretty excited about it–So. Much. Data!–and also thrilled that they invited me.

And I so wish I could tell you more….because the group/population I’m studying is actually really cool. But alas…you’ll have to make up those parts.
