    YIPPEE!! [​IMG] I recently completed my Master's degree in geology (emphasis in hydrogeology). My adviser volunteered me to write an article for the Groundwater Resources Association of California (GRAC) quarterly publication, Hydrovisions. It was tough to condense my thesis to a few pages, so it is only a portion of my actual thesis research. It is pages 19-23 (Student Research Section) in this link.

    Yay!!! My thesis is done...my article is done. No more school! [​IMG] No more juggling school and working full-time! [​IMG] Thankfully, I have a very patient, understanding and supportive husband. [​IMG] The past couple weekends have been great! I've been able to get more done around here...help DH in the garden, not do homework, chores (laundry, cleaning, etc)...oh, and did I mention no homework? [​IMG]

    edited to add: For those that are familiar with publishing research, I am aware that this is not a peer-reviewed journal, but it is still a widely respected e-zine! [​IMG]
