Well...I wasn't always slogging (occasionally swimming) through
salt marshes. Here's a smattering of past work on other people’s
research projects to prove it. For the record, I'm sorry if I ever
complained about last minute changes or apparent disorganization. After
running my own research project I know now that there's only so much that
can go exactly as planned!!!
