i went to grad school, and all i got was a pandemic

A Facebook Meme I ran across early this summer, it summed up how I felt at the time.

I’m going to share with you the story of why I decided to go to graduate school, the discovered risks involved, and why it seems to be panning out for someone like me. My goal is to give you a learning guide (a single reference point), based on my experiences and a global pandemic. Maybe it will help you plant a seed of hope for the future, the one you choose to build.
