Hello All!

I'm currently in California, here to visit a friend as well as being able to truthfully admit to others that I never turned thirty in Philadelphia!


Hi All:

My last post before this one, titled "Graduation! Now what?" was quite the longer piece, perhaps the longest of my blog thus far, and so this one will be shorter as it brings the reader to a sense of where I am presently at, career-wise.

And, as far as it seems, I have much to say about it, albeit "briefly".

Hi all!

I spend a tiny bit of time before each post, deciding what the specific focus of the post might be, seeing what I had posted about lately, and wondering if any topic appears to be "missing" which I should write on.

Dear Philadelphia,

You do not disappoint currently.

Weather-wise, it is quite a bit sunnier and warmer than it has been, and how lovely it is to be leaving behind the particularly dreary season we had this past winter. This week seems to have in it our closest high to 80° yet, with Sunday currently at 77°.

Weather aside, how are things presently?

Hi All!

So, this update is something of a continuation of the previous update two weeks prior.

I've been internalizing the "Road Runner" idea, enacting it in my own life, moving about relatively quickly (although not as fast as our dear R.R.) while maintaining a sense of calm.

OK, Dearest Readers, I am back with another post and now feeling the senses of both "calm" and "direction/focus" in my life.

I discovered that I was not admitted into the last of the PhD programs to which I had applied, such that I am now a "free agent", and I do not yet know just what I'll be doing next in my life, post-MEd.

So, welcome to my third post for this year, seeing as I'm posting ~bi-weekly. My first post was "Let's Get Going!", followed by "Ups & Downs". Treating these three posts as if there were a series, I chose the title of "Let's Stay Still...".

Why? Where's the momentum?

So, just what is this mess of a situation?

"Normal", is what I'll go with, for now.

What do I mean? Well...

It seems that I've been wait-listed at UPenn, while not being admitted for Temple nor UMaryland.

Hello All:

I have been settled back in the USA now for over half of a week, having flown back, with my departing from Abu Dhabi at 1:40AM on 1/8. I still have the sense that my internal clock requires further fine-tuning, such that I am waking up earlier than I expect to and becoming quite tired earlier than I usually do.
