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.

Hi All!

So, trying an unusual type of post this time, as I thought the shot of "novelty" might benefit this blog.

For this post, I'm sharing a conversation I had with Liz about just what ESL teaching may mean in our current day and age. So, for the sake of shortness, "L" stands for "Liz" and "T" stands for "Thomas":

Hello everyone!

Life continues to go well! I've been prepping for the Psych GRE, as my prior GRE results (both general and specific) have expired, as they are wont to do after five years.

I've been enough on top of coursework and such studying that I feel OK for it! I do need to continue so, ASAP though!

Hello Readers,

It's nice to sit back to make the time for this post. I was earlier today at an "internship fair" at Chestnut Hill college, and it's partly a result of thoughts during the fair for which I care to post now.

In the last post I shared that it was a time of flux, so just what are/were some of the changes?

1. I've decided to post bi-weekly on this blog, as the amount of material I expect to be able to share should fit that timeframe more easily, rather than weekly.

2. I've gone ahead and reserved my next NYE trip, this time to Abu Dhabi!
