Keep Moving Forward!!!

Today I turned in my application for admission to PhD candidacy – a monumental step in the life of a graduate student. I am tremendously happy and grateful for making it this far, but recognize that there is still a lot more to accomplish in this journey. Planning to keep moving forward – though I’m praying for a snow day tomorrow 😉

Finals Crunch Time

It’s that time of the year again – exams, papers due etc. This is a view from one of the library study rooms at the University of Maryland Baltimore. You can see the Ravens stadium in the distance and a hint of the Orioles ballpark.
