I hate being back at school. This is not a confession because it is not a secret.
I have been in school every single semester since January 2009. I won’t be done til August 2015. That’s six years of school, people. Shoot. Me. Now. This is my last full didactic year and now I have my little guy at home soooooooo…

This is a great start to a BTAT post, isn’t it?
I’ll get to the “better” part now.
I work well on a schedule. I’m lucky enough to work in a profession that requires appointments for specified amounts of time. Being back in the swing of things this semester is helpful for me. I know (mostly) what my days will be like, when I’ll be home, and how much longer I have til I’m done!
Getting in the swing of things means I’m ONE YEAR away from being done.
Getting into the swing of things means I’m ONE YEAR away from spending eight weeks at the place I’ve wanted to do a rotation at since I started this journey in school.
Getting into the swing of things means I do get back to talking nerd talk with other nerds in my field.
Getting into the swing of things means (hopefully) learning more.
See? It’s not all bad. Getting into the swing of things can be Better than the Alternative. Onward!
Now go out and run.
