After all the wonderful feedback I received on my research paper idea, I revised the idea specs and have since submitted it for ethical review at Lancaster University. As soon as I receive approval to proceed (in the next day or so?), I will post the final specs, my consent form, and a request for participants. I can only hope I have the same interest from faculty with the interviews I will need to conduct.
I have no idea what I may find with this research, and while I am content with that notion, I also know that my experience and findings are leading me in some research direction. How exciting!
