I’ve been going back and forth as to when I would blog about this. But since it’s kinda big and more and more people are finding out, it occurs to me that I should do it sooner than later. I’m applying to grad school. University of Chicago to be exact. The program is the Master of Arts Program in the Social Sciences (MAPSS). It’s a one year (nine months actually) multi-disciplinary degree.

This has been the result of a lot of soul searching and wasn’t an easy decision. To be honest, I’m still wrestling with the entire thing and it’s implications. But at the same time, in many ways I either do this now or never. So if I’ve seemed a little distracted, this is part of the reason.

As for why…. That’s more complex. And fodder for another blog. :-)
