Its amazing how time flies when you're pre-occupied with the trajectory of your life. For all the planning and lists that it takes to get things done, it takes the life out of a person. I had a great meeting with my new academic adviser regarding my acceptance into the graduate program. I felt free to say what my goals and aspirations were and have someone agree and work with me on a plan of how to get there, or at least tell me I was going in the right direction. I'm learning a lot these days.
