Working Backwards

I cannot believe it’s already November. Where has the time gone?! The months continue to pass us by, and sooner rather than later, the semester will be over! This does make me quite nervous as I only have one semester left! Dr. Zamora mentioned “slow by steady,” but I feel as if I need to speed things up! The last thing I want is to be behind in my thesis, and it all comes crashing on me. I haven’t been able to focus too much on reading new articles as I came down with a cold last week (hence the reasoning as to why I did not put out a blog, but I will make that up!). Aside from the cold, I also received my COVID-19 booster. Thankfully, I did not have all of the same symptoms as when I received the second vaccine dose, but I still had a headache and fever. Now that I am getting over my cold, I’ve been focusing on working backward. I’ve been looking at what needs to be accomplished by the end of the semester and working towards that. I would like to begin putting together my Literature Review. I’ve been reading a few articles and jotting down what interests me, but I want to focus on the following items from the Literature Review document that Dr. Zamora provided us:

  • Why is this text on my list? 
  • Do I agree with this viewpoint? Why?
  • Are the methods or approaches used are strong or weak, and why?

Focusing on these specific questions will be beneficial for later in the semester rather than only having bulletin points. I would also like to begin conducting brief interviews to see if there is a correlation or distinction between the geriatric population and today’s generation. This will aid in my research and area of interest of when work-life balance came about and how it correlates with Gender Equity.
