Last night I spent a few hours reading old posts from this blog. It was kind of fun to read the first post, and so on. The real origins are on blackboard, though. I wish I could read those posts, too. Reminiscing was nice for me. I liked hearing all your voices again.
Anyhow, I decided to give you all an update. Some of you I haven't seen in over a year, some I saw last week, some of you I haven't met.
Time has flown by for me. I'm a little over halfway through my Master's program, but it feels like I just started. I chose my committee last week, so as of now I'm on schedule to graduate in April 2010, but if I get burned out I'll put it off 'til August.
I'm also looking into Ph.D. programs. Most of the applications are due in January, so I need to choose a school, an emphasis, etc. I have mixed feelings on this one. While it'd be really cool to get my Ph.D., four more years of school doesn't especially appeal to me. Mostly I don't know what to do with myself after graduating for the second time, so I figure I'll prolong the school thing a while longer. I feel like I don't have to be a real adult while I'm in school. (I'm thinking about Purdue University--I like the idea of being in the midwest again.)
Right now I'm taking a Spring class. It's almost over. The Spring term ends June 18. On June 19 I'm going to a family reunion in Colorado. No one is supposed to stay at my Grandpa's house because he doesn't have room for everyone, but somehow I've become a family favorite, so I'm allowed to stay there. My immediate family will be there, too. I'm driving home with them after the reunion and staying in Georgia for the rest of the summer.
How about the rest of you?
Leanna--How is pregnancy #2?
Anona--Where are you? How is Sammy?
Julie--How is PA? Med School? life in general?
Em--How soon do you leave Nevada? How is Bradley?
Dan--Where are you? Why aren't you working for the Center?
Chan--What are you doing after graduation? I know a great little place in Provo you could live...
Everyone else--get on here and write. All of you.
