Hello :)

Hi there readers!

It’s been quite a while since I last posted. All I can say is that life happened, in a good way though. I have finally figured out what I want to be doing with the rest of my life and it’s nice to know I will be staying put here on the shores of Lake Michigan for a few more years!

I applied to the graduate program at my undergraduate institution and was accepted, so I get this wonderful opportunity to study what I love, learn new skills and techniques, be surrounded by the best in the field, all while getting four seasons and starting my own, independent life.

It’s weird but I guess that’s what comes with graduation. That’s not to say you can’t take time off or such but this is what I want to be doing and my gut feeling is telling me to pursue graduate studies in a biological sciences interdisciplinary doctorate program. So I am. I would have never thought when I transferred universities, let alone just a month ago. Sometimes things change quickly, other times slowly. And patience, as I have learned, is the best way to approach all the curveballs life throws our way.

For now, I end with this thought, something that has given me a new way of approaching life. More soon, and I cannot wait to share with you all and document my journey through a doctorate program.

Challenges and obstacles on the path of life may seem initially like things that are standing in your way but in reality, the obstacles, roadblocks, challenges, curve ballsĀ are the path of life. You can’t avoid hitting a curveball when it comes your way because if you do, then it will keep coming back. So why not just go for it? You may miss the first time but you will eventually get a hold of it and drive it right over the shortstops head into left field.
