18 months ago all I wanted was to be living in California, in a PhD program, and moving onward and upwards in my career. To look around (figuratively) in my life and see how my biggest dreams have come to fruition just blows my mind. I feel that I am at a sort of crossroads. It’s time to set new goals and make new dreams for myself. Currently the only thing that I can foresee in my future is travelling, and graduating. I’ve been reading lately and finding successful African Americans who after their PhD’s have gone on to do some pretty successful things. I have also been looking into getting a fellowship but I cannot for the life of me understand how to begin that process. I just guess its kinda weird that the things I have always wanted have come to pass. Now to dream new dreams.
