Along with enjoying the wonderful culture, people, food, and wine of Spain, I have also been working diligently on finishing my Master’s thesis Netvibes in the AP Spanish Classroom: Using Dashboard Technologies to Maintain Life-Long Language Learning. It has been an interesting new experience doing all research and communication with advisors, teachers, and students through the Internet, but I am so thankful, because without it, this dream of a year in Spain could not have been possible. I am happy to report that I am officially done with the thesis, it has been edited, and as of yesterday was sent off to print!

Although I missed graduation because I am here enjoying my last few months in Spain, my wonderful parents celebrated with me over an awesome FaceTime toast…with champagne and everything!! What would I do without them!? Now to enjoy the rest of my time here thesis and worry free!! :)
