What happened to October and November? The past few weeks have been a blur for me. Work, school, work, school and a little bit of a social life thrown in. I officially end semester on December 13th and I CAN’T WAIT!
The semester flew for me. I had a ton of work to do and still have quite a lot to finish but the finish line is in sight. Next semester is going to be rough – I have four classes. But I know me, I am driven and will get it done. And I may be entering a doctoral program next fall. I’m still not sure if it is a good fit for me but I am talking to the program advisor on Monday and see what he says. One of my professors encouraged me to go for it and someone else close to me, who has always been my biggest supporter when it comes to furthering my education.
Sometimes it seems like I am taking on too much. But I know my limits and I also know where I want to be career-wise in the next few years. I may just go on and get my 2nd graduate degree instead but the lure of the PhD has been tugging at me for quite awhile.
And my personal life has taken quite the turn. Not ready to write about it but I may, if and when I am ready. But right now it’s all good, really, really good….and unexpected. I’m just enjoying what little free time I have and taking everything day by day. I am truly at peace.
I guess the lesson here is you are never too old to follow your dreams or pursue new ones. We all have plans and goals and sometimes they change and we have to adapt, change our direction and move on. And it’s how you move on that makes all the difference.
Have a great weekend everyone xo
