I have been glued to the computer screens this week, analyzing data. My first draft of results and discussion is due....tomorrow! I have been glad of two things this week: that the University of Texas at Arlington required us to take a full semester course dedicated to qualitative research, and that I have dual monitors, which is so efficient when one needs several documents open at the same time. It is good to be married to a computer genius. I used to secretly snicker at R and J (the son who is also a computer genius) for having 2, 3, 5, or more monitors. If I had a bigger desk, I would get a third one! I am almost done with all the coding, trending, patterning, aggregation, meaning-making, interpretation, triangulating, fact-checking, reviewing, reflexivity, linking and so on and so on and so on, and ready to start writing up the results (what the data tells me/us) and the discussion (what it means and what we need to do with it). I love playing in the midst of words, trying to make sense of them.
