014 // ending the year

This school year comes to a close in two weeks, and it is a bit difficult to believe that I’m 62% done with my program. In the last year I have taken thirty classes, covering finance, evaluation, epidemiology, biostatistics, investments, economics, maternal health, global health, population dynamics, environmental health, and negotiations (to name a few). I can’t even begin to fathom how long it would take me to calculate the number of pages I’ve written, or assignments I’ve completed. Hours spent studying, appointments with professors or TAs, and group projects all fall into the same bucket of interesting-statistics-that-I-just-don’t-have-time-to-determine.

It’s been a crazy year. There were times I thought of quitting, but the notion of the loans I’d have to pay back stopped me. There were days I questioned why I was doing this, but friends helped me remember that I am very interested in public health. In general, I’m so incredibly happy to be here and doing this. I wouldn’t change it for the world.
