Computer Issues& Modifications.

For the past two and a half weeks I have not been able to post any of my progress because the hard drive of my laptop has been corrupt, thanks to a virus.

I have begun writing my write-up and am half way done. I will be finishing my first draft in the first days of the new year. The changes to my draft will be made during the focus days (January 4th - January 5th). I will have many people read through it, to ensure there are no mistakes made.

I have made changes to my intial 'product' idea. I was planning on making a scrapbook of my time at the Hippotherapie Zentrumm, including photos of children and horses. I was not able to attend therapy sessions because of my time limitations and privacy rules. Instead, I am going to follow through with my scrapbook plans, with a few modifications:

- I am going to include phots of the horses I work with at the Hippotherapie Zentrum, with an explaination of their temperments, which contribute to a successful therapy program

- I will have pages explaining different things about therapeutic riding with illustrations where necessary

- There will be a couple pages explaining Hippotherapy, since it's a little different than just basic therapeutic riding

- I'm going to be putting a lot of effort into the presentation of my scrapbook aswell as my write-up, of course

Detailed Outline.

Today I handed in my detailed Personal project outline to Mr. Geraets.
The comments were that it was good, my essay is focused largely on the Analysis section, and that I could have been a little more specific in parts, which will make it much easier to write the drafts and final copies. I will be starting to write my draft in the next couple days when I have time after school.

I have schedualed a metting with my supervisor, but I can't remember the day. I will be confirming the date and time tomorrow.

Saturdays at 7:30.

Every saturday starting on December 12th I will be volunteering at the Hippotherapie Zentrum. I will be mucking out and feeding in the mornings, but since the therapy programs start at 8:00, I might be able to see some of the sessions.
