It’s Official: I’m Going With Memphis

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” — Henry David Thoreau


sign saying Memphis

So I knew I was close to a decision on what to do for doctoral study (the third go around, that is), and after thinking carefully about whether I should wait a whole extra term just to hear back from Northeastern I’ve decided it’s not necessary. It’s official: I’m feeling really comfortable with the University of Memphis, and I’m enrolling in their Doctor of Education program in Higher Education.

It’s funny, because I was still telling myself that I was still mulling it over, yet already doing things like signing up for my memphis.edu email address, filling out a FAFSA and having the results sent only to Memphis, and even doing the financial aid entry counseling and master promissory note and everything. I came to realize that while I was a little nervous to admit it to myself, the decision had already been made.

I know I’ve already written at length about the reasons I was considering each course of action, so I won’t belabor them again. I just wanted to publicly mark it as a decision that’s completely made. So… go Tigers!
