Back at school, I’ve got one final task on my agenda before I dive right into working on my paper, and that is meeting with my adviser.
During the 36 hours it took me to get from Hong Kong back home to Spokane, WA, I was able to continue with some of my readings and look back on the two months of research that I had done. It was fortunate that I had so much time because it took quite a bit of time for me to organize my findings and get things prepared for the upcoming year.
So it has been a couple of weeks since my last post and I’ve reached a point that many researchers often hit and mostly fear: I’m stuck.
Returning to HK has given me some time to examine the research I collected while on the mainland and has helped me to organize my thoughts and data in order to create some concrete idea of what I found while I was there. It turned out to be a wonderful experience that few people get, and really helped on my insight into how a Chinese business is run, and what sort of interactions take place.
