I noticed that my last entry was from 10 Feb 04; a quick visit to timeanddate.com's duration calculator tells me that is 1727 days, 246 weeks, or 4 years 8 months and 23 days.
A lot has happened over that time span. Back then I was a part-time grad student, trying to make ends meet on a library assistant's salary and trying to figure out what direction I wanted to take next. Within a year, I narrowed down my immediate future career paths to a handful, and began aggressively moving toward graduation and a career. Eventually the right opportunity popped up in one of the several career paths I had an interest in, and I took it.
Now I'm in year three of teaching high school physics, along with a few other courses. I have my master's in physics, and I'm about done with the three-year teaching alternative certification graduate program, which I will extend by a year or two to get a second master's, this time in education.
I wonder what my update will look like in another 4 years, 8 months, and 23 days? I guess we'll see--on Thursday, July 25, 2013.
(Maybe I'll post again in the interim...)
