Boiler Up

Another year at Purdue. Talk about mixed feelings. The way I left it prior to summer and what I came back to... I don't know.

Today is the first day of the graduate student orientation and I spoke on several panels to the incoming students. To think I was in those seats 2 years ago, clueless as all get-out. Acronyms galore, fear of the looming area exams (qualifiers, cumms, et cetera), and no idea what I was getting into by changing my entire academic program.

So today has been a day of ups-and-downs. Reviewing these couple of years and imagining the ones ahead of me. Whoa.
