I am just about 7 days into my newest journey. Starting a Ph.D. in STEM Education at Tufts University. It has been a wild week, to say the least. I am still finishing up work at Ramp, a video distribution startup in Boston, and had my first classes almost a week ago on Sep 8th. On top of that, I am trying to reintegrate into student life, celebrate the Jewish High Holidays, and get to know my advisors and the research cultures in their labs. Covid has certainly not simplified this transition. With all this going on I am feeling deeply behind but also incredibly excited.
I was originally planning to blog only about my thoughts as a CS educator but given that I have not been doing that since May a slice of life update seemed more reasonable for my first post.
