You are right, words are powerful tools. When I wrote the blog I had noticed one person in particular on posts would beat herself up for "cheating" when she got off track. The way she phrased it sounded very negative. Then I read a blog where a person kept saying she wanted to be normal. Again the way she phrased it sounded so negative. It just started me thinking about those two words and how they had been used. Thanks for your comments. I hope you are having a great week! Martha
Yes, I am using ESRI for mapping this summer. In addition I am finishing up an Advanced GIS course which consists mainly of ESRI Online courses. We are continuing a NSF funded project, mapping the Colorado River Terraces in the area. I worked a little on it last summer, did structured research last semester and am delving a little deeper into it this summer. I will likely roll some aspect of it into my senior thesis project next year.
