Thanks so much to everyone who has joined us for this #studentbloggers series. This is our final installment (for now, at least) as the school year revs into gear. See you guys on the other side, and don’t forget to check out all these incredibly TALENTED bloggers who have participated!
QUESTION 1. Let’s be honest: how much time do you spend on schoolwork/research vs. the blog?
Ala: I treat school like a full-time job…and it is one!
