I feel lucky that after spending years living in this small city I am getting the opportunity to experience it in a way I never have; as a student. A few weeks ago, I started Graduate school.
A Master’s degree has been something I always wanted and intended to pursue. I cannot verbalize how happy being in school again makes me even though I find myself knee-deep in readings, papers, and illustrations. Yes it is stressful, yes it is a lot of work but yes, it is one of the most gratifying and fulfilling experiences I’ve had to date.
I believe that going to college, like everything else, is what you make it and for me, I am taking advantage of every minute. I am diving into subjects with amazing professors and colleagues in a way that no other experience has allowed me to. I am also getting a lot of time at the library and walks along the East Side of Providence which is so lovely this time of year.
“There really is only one, and that is this: To fulfill the highest, most truthful expression of yourself as a human being. You want to max out your humanity by using your energy to lift yourself up, your family, and the people around you.”
don’t quit your day dream.
