Hello everyone. It has been quite a long time since I have posted, but I promise that I will update more. I have had the craziest life changes in the past few weeks, so I want to share those with you and why I have been away for some time. So let’s start of why I I haven’t been writing and then go into where this blog will go from here.
I really did it. I finished my doctorate
You read that right, I am done! I defended my dissertation about a month and a half ago and have been finishing up all of my requirements so I can graduate in May. I am officially Dr. Ben! It’s amazing and I really want to thank you guys for helping along the way. I have had so much support in the blogging community, and it has helped me get where I am now.
Exactly where am I now? Miami!!! I am now a consultant while finishing my doctorate up. Actually, the doctorate is done, but I have papers that I am still writing. I started a job down here about a month ago and it is going really well so far. I love my coworkers and the company is great. I am definitely excited to start this journey, but man, I will miss being a student. I won’t miss not having the money though lol.
So now that I finished my doctorate, you may be asking “Dr. Ben, what’s next for the blog?”. That’s a good question and I think it’s going to be about post grad school advice for those that have a doctorate and don’t know what to do. I will give my advice on getting a job, what to expect, as well as anything else that goes with working full time after college. I think this may be a good direction for this blog.
I wanted to keep this a bit short today because I just started back. I will create much longer blog posts soon and definitely up my posts. I have a lot to catch up on, but it is really nice to be back. Let me know how you guys are doing? It has been a while, but know that my intention was always to come back.
