I am brimming with excitement at the start of the semester. Selecting courses based on preference and not to fulfill a general requirement is the leading benefit of graduate-level study. While I am grateful for my undergraduate foundation, I do not miss pursuing a bachelor's degree. By revisiting papers pertaining to the courses I completed for my master's, my next thesis begins to appear on the horizon. Simultaneously, embarking on fresh areas of interest is an opportunity for professional expansion. Endless scholarly opportunities present themselves for the taking. There are books to acquire, professors to meet, and peers with whom to debate. Let us begin.
