Hellllllooooooooo! I just wanted to come by to let you all know that I'm still here living, loving, luxuriating and things of that nature! I know my posts have been far less frequent as of late but I've a got lot going on. I try my best not to make half assery a practice so please accept my apologies but my life is changing and for the better! Glory! :-) This is just a quick post to let you "wasssss hannin" and stuff..
First things first, I'm going back to school full time this Fall. *Kick Ball Changes into a Praise Dip* YAAS! In the last Diary of a Scholar poss I shared that I'd decided to move on and pursue the Phd on a full time basis. Working full time and going to graduate school was WEARING me. My time and attention were being pulled in one million different directions with school, work, and all my GlamNERDIAN endeavors and my focus was dwindling to brink of defeat. I needed to regroup, reassess my goals and make some adjustments in my life. In so doing I realized that I needed to be more strategic in chasing my dreams by making my own educational goals priority. I applied to full time PhD programs and fellowships in the Fall,2011 and the offers are on the table. I will officially announce the program/university I'll be attending once I officially accept an offer of admission. For now, just know that God does answer prayer and that there is no goal that is unattainable if you put all of your faith in HIM. I'm blessed beyond measure and truly grateful.
I'm starting the next leg of this journey which is exciting because I'll be able to document every challenge and victory by sharing the process here on TheGlamNERDS.com. I'm so ready... I mean, like all the way turned up about it... Let's get these credentials... WHO' Ridin?! lol
Also, as you may or may not know TheGlamNERDS.com has expanded to include a host of consulting services. Over the last few months I've been blessed to travel the state and even the country, facilitating workshops on college/grad school application prep, navigating financial aid, academic personal branding/social networking, professional style and etiquette and much much more. This weekend I'll be in Albany,NY conducting a workshop at the New York State Science and Technology Entry Program's Annual Statewide Conference. There I will have the pleasure of engaging with over 600 minority middle and high school students with interest in pursuing careers in the sciences, technology, engineering and math from across the state of New York. I'll also be serving as judge for the Poster Competition. I was member of this program as a middle/high school student, so to attend the conference now and serve in these capacitices is like surreal full circle moment. \ o / , Thank you big God! ;-) LOL. I hope to have footage of the conference to share here on the website so please check back for more. And as always follow me on Twitter to be notified of upcoming blog posts as well as my random musings, reactions and pontifications.
Until Next Time, Always Remain in Constant Pursuit of All Thing Fabulous!
