The year that I graduate…

As much as I was eager to work on Jan 1st I ended up going hiking with some friends and visiting my family which was great and much needed socializing. So happy that I took the first day of the year off. …


The end to begin…

I’m glad I decided not to take the day off from work and work on my PhD. I probably got 2 hours of work done in the morning. I created a query but didn’t run it since didn’t want to ruin my NYE mood, in case…
