Huzzah, I got accepted to the one doctoral program to which I applied! I have decided to approach my dissertation from an entirely different angle (i.e. Researching prison inmates for signs of Autism Spectrum Disorders, and working backwards via public record and inmate interview, as well as contact with representatives from the legal system, etc.): Exploring incarceration rates of people with ASDs compared to other diagonses (primarily personality disorders). This is obviously not going to require documentation of Twilight's gender stereotyping.

I will not need this blog for any dissertation purposes, so I will resume writing it relatively soon. I can't give an actual time-frame, because I'm procrastinating in every facet of my life at the moment, but it will be soon!

I'm sure everyone's drooling with anticipation. /sarcasm

Well screw you! It's my blog!

Hold up a minute-

I am working on publishing parts of this topic (more specifically, will be drawing from this blog directly) in a journal article, and potentially expanding it into a doctoral dissertation. I need to do some more research before I continue on whether I can use previously-published materials (i.e. this blog) for such purposes. If so, I'll be back. If not, I'll still be back, but will work with material not published here in my article and/or dissertation.

Write to you soon! =)
