Was it annoying and stressful to have to re-write the confirmation document? Yes. Was it a waste of time? Certainly not! Although the actual project plan is similar to the last, the way in which I articulated it and outlined hypotheses and goals is a lot clearer.
I've got little time to relax and take it all in though (although the weekend was pretty good), because now I have to set up my crocodile and fish decay experiments. Be prepared to see a lot of dead croc photos on this blog!
