Maybe I’ve just become a very boring person. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. I’ve heard it a million times and maybe it’s true. This is completely unexpected. It’s not that I’m bored, but more that I feel lost without something to be working on.
I do have good news. I got notification that my proposal passed the forms review and has entered the next phase - quality review. I was told to expect feedback sometime within the next 15 days. After the quality review (after passing the quality review), the IRB gets a chance to pick it apart. For now, I'm pleased with the status of things.
