Happy Lunar New Year (yesterday)

Happy Lunar New Years. May the new year bring you happiness, strength and the will power to achieve the goals you set for yourself.

Speaking of which, I am only 3 months away from Graduating with my Masters. Yet, I am already considering a Ph.D. Why? I tell myself it's to achieve something that no one else in my family has done before so that they can be proud of who they have helped me become. For them, for me, for us. From an ROI standpoint I'm not sure if it'll help me with my career much as my Masters will. But even though my dad was 6 credits and a dissertation away from getting his Ph.D. Perhaps it's up to me to finish what he started. What kind of twisted sentiment do I have for a father that was largely never there yet I would like to supercede him in academia?

I look forward to graduating to them pursue my career with a renewed sense of ambition. To reward myself with an around the world trip that the Star Alliance offers for $5,000 for 25k flying miles and 8 destinations. To giving someone all the love I have to give. To be a better person, true to myself.

New Year. New Purpose.
