As I fully jump back into the swing of things, quite frankly, I have mixed feelings. I’m EXCITED to be entering my last semester of graduate school (YAY!!!). But at the same time I am sad that this part of my educational journey is ending. I am thankful that I have had this amazing opportunity to learn amongst some of our nations most outstanding faculty/staff and students. While I am maintaining focus on the upcoming papers, projects and presentations, I feel slightly overwhelmed and anxious knowing that this last semester will also need to include job hunting. So as I prepare to complete this last semester, and in the spirit of a new year, I have given some though to a few goals I would like to accomplish:

1. Take advantage of every opportunity to engage with and learn from my classmates and professors

2. Get a job

3. Enjoy each day left in this journey

4. Graduate

Although I’ve only listed 4 goals above I have MANY more! I fully intend to make the most of the time I have left and create UNFORGETTABLE memories along the way! Here’s to May 11, 2013 🙂
