As I anxiously begin the countdown to graduation – and let’s be honest, there’s a countdown to the end of this quarter going on already – I become more and more aware of how much I am loving learning. Time off in December was welcomed and necessary, but there was definitely something missing. For all my complaining; for all the stress; and for all the (much) missed time with friends, I love widening my scope of the world through an article or essay, a paper, a research project.
I truly embrace the sense of purpose that goes hand in hand with the challenges of assignments due, presentations to create, and ultimately – time to manage. I like busy when busy means I’m learning. I’ve just checked off week one of Winter Quarter, 2013, and I’m feeling energized and inspired. The next ten weeks are about Advocacy & Public Policy, and (more) Leadership and Quality Management – study on!
