Chage of Course in Life

I have not written anything on this blog since July. It's not that I did not want to, it's that I have not had time. See, in July, I got a letter of acceptance from the University of Kansas (Go Jayhawks!) to join their Molecular Biology PhD. program. I will hopefully have my PhD in 5 or 6 years.... and I could not turn down the opportunity. However, this 180 degree turn in my life has also meant quitting my job (best decision ever, and best feeling ever when I told my boss that I was quitting because I was getting my PhD.), moving to Kansas City, and starting school. Unlike a job, where you work 9am to 5pm and then leave your work in the office, I cannot do that anymore. Unlike in undergrad, school is no longer only attending classes. I wake up at 5am, go to class, I teach three undergrad lab sections, and I work in a lab doing my research. The little free time I have in between those I have to attend meetings and departmental seminars. I get home at 6 or 7pm, and I have to study. I have not been able to update this blog because I do not have a life outside school anymore.... and I love it. Going back to school was the best decision I could have ever made. I am being challenged intellectually every single day, and I missed that at work.
So I am going to change the direction of this blog. Even though I don't manage a network anymore, I still toy around with my computers, but just for fun, not professionally anymore. So trust me, I will still talk tech, I like computers way too much. What I mean is that I am going to start talking more about science, about critical thinking (the title of the blog IS ThinkThick, isn't it?), about common sense, that seems to be less common lately. I cannot promise that I will write every week, like I used to, I can't but at least I will try to be more consistent than I have been for the last 5 months....
