I love higher ed. I have a ridiculous adoration for the entire industry that taught me most of what I know. Higher ed changed my adult life in every single way. I'm not walking at commencement tomorrow. I obviously have some feels about that, or I would not have returned to this space that I… Continue reading On Not Walking….
I have a lot of feels about completing graduate school. Lots and lots of feels. There are several posts I should write: Was your grad degree worth it? (Yes, absolutely. I use it everyday.)
