Today as I looked back on my most recent post, I noticed that I had intended to post periodically during the Summer. Well, that didn’t happen. It seems like such a short time ago the Spring semester ended; and then I look at the calendar and realize it’s been 3 months! Where did the time go?
I’m looking forward to the upcoming semester – my schedule hasn’t changed since my last post. I’ve reviewed the syllabi, purchased my books, downloaded my supplemental readings, and am looking forward to a very productive semester. The three courses seem to fit nicely together and I’m excited to get started. The main themes can be summed up in three words: culture, globalization, and security. All three areas are of great interest to me and can help guide my studies as I work toward narrowing down a dissertation topic. I’m still keenly interested in nuclear issues – the question still remains, “which one will I choose?”
Classes start a week from today – look for updates as the semester progresses!
