Just in time for the carefree summer vacation that we are both so looking forward, where a lot of parents and grandparents will be involved, so that we can hopefully sneak for an hour or two…Stoyan and I received our first recommended reading from the University of Manchester. The nerd in me, of course, omits words such as recommended and next thing you know I am all covered in Statistics, semantic differentials, and the holy validity and reliability; and tears are about to pour.
During my Bachelor’s this has been my least favorite subject. I liked blaming it on the lifeless 75-year-old professor we had, but the truth is I have always sucked at numbers, charts and simple logic. So this will be such a huge challenge. Needless to say, my insecurities kick in immediately and I know there will be many sleepless nights ahead. Yet the anticipation of being in school again is beyond explanation. I realize how much I don’t know and how much I will learn. It’s exhilarating.
