Hello TE brethren!

It’s been awhile, and I haven’t kept up on updating my progress towards my PhD in Information Security and Assurance at Capella, so I’ll do a bulk update here.  I’m currently at 44% through the program, and after this term, I should pass 50%.  I only have a total of 2 courses left for the course work, then I’ll be attending 3 residences and taking the comprehensive exam, at which point I’ll be ABD.  Then comes the fun part, writing the dissertation.  A listing of my courses and their statuses can be seen below, including Completed, In-Progress and Remaining.  It’s been a TON of work, but I’ve enjoyed the journey so far.
