Hello World!

And so it begins.

As much as I tried to convince myself to stay in the healthcare analytics world (a great career with awesome coworkers AND ergonomically sound work spaces [aside: why does it seem like 95% of study spaces for grad students are equipped with unadjustable chairs made for people three feet taller than me?]), academia just kept calling. I thought the MA a few years ago would be enough, but it turned out to be merely a gateway drug.

My first semester at Notre Dame was tough – 16 credits (5 classes and a fellowship lecture) will do that – but you know what? It’s what I came here for. Just like when I’m halfway up a rock face, hands sweating, asking myself ‘why do I do this, again?’, secretly I always know I’ll have it no other way.

Long story short, here we go! It’s going to be an exciting five years.
