Day 18 - Slow and steady wins the race
Is it really only Wednesday? I've been at this keyboard for eight hours and I have just about finished the revision of my research vehicle (a survey). It needs a little polish and a second set of eyes, but I made real progress today. I took a short break at noon to re-read the material for a quiz on Social Media Marketing tomorrow, which means I've done what needed to be done for today. It's little by little by little that I am building on the assignments for each of my classes.
Time flies when you are fully engrossed in your work. Now, however, it's time I loosened up. I'm headed to my wonderful Hatha Yoga class tonight at 7:00 at the MSU Wellness Center; it's taught by my friend, Therese Saint Paul. It seems like forever since the spring class ended, and I am ready to see everyone. Not to mention the knots in my neck from hunching over the keyboard. I really need this class tonight, and that's why this post is merely a quickie - with a few miscellaneous items below.
Do you know someone studying abroad this semester?
For anyone with a son, daughter or friend studying abroad this semester or even one recently returned from a summer program, here is a link to an excellent article about "re-entry" into the US. Working over the past few years with study abroad students, I learned how valid these points are and I applaud the young author.

Time for this grad student to stretch, breathe deeply and limber up!
