Day Four: Reflection

I left ATL at 10:00am this morning (it was supposed to be 9:15 but there were fog delays). Surprisingly, I left more confused than I had been when I came on Thursday.

Ever since the 6th grade I said I wanted to get my PhD just like my 6th grade teacher…in what? I was not sure. But I knew I would get one.

Due to my interest in psychology, digital media, and computer science I decided to get a PhD in human-computer interaction. However, this weekend I was persuaded that PhD’s were only for research and academia. I LIKE to do research, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t know if I could do it forever or i I really even have a passion for it. And I know that I cannot teach. Well, it’s not that I can’t, it’s just that I prefer not to because kids these days like to test your patience.

I know I want at least my master’s because I want to learn more about HCI and my school only has one course on the subject. BUT GA Tech doesn’t offer a program in which you can get your PhD and your master’s on the way.

eek! What do I do now??

I guess I have  about 7 months to figure it out.

p.s. tomorrow is back to regularly scheduled program

and fyi…did you know that i.e. should NOT be used to say for example…instead e.g. is used for this purpose
