This past Wednesday, October 13th 2010, the Graduate Student Association (GSA) was received by President and Mrs. Starr at their home, the Allbritton House, in the heart of the Baylor Campus. All GSA Program Representatives and Alternates were invited to this event. There were food and drinks provided, but the thing that impressed us the most was the warm welcoming reception of both of our hosts. President Starr and Mrs. Starr are known for their warmth and they couldn’t have been nicer to us. Among the guests were Dr. Lyon (Dean of the Graduate School), Dr. Jackson (VP for Student Life), Dr. Scott (associate vice president for Student Life), and Dr. Scales (Associate Dean of Graduate and Professional Studies and GSA Advisor).

How long has it been since I have posted something here? A while right? However it is not like I haven’t been thinking about bloggable subjects. Even this post has been drafted a while ago…i just have not posted it. Surprisingly, the though of blogging about a subject has been in my mind A LOT, I see/read something and the first thought is: “I should blog about that,” but I end up not doing it. It is not like I don’t have the time. Technically speaking I do have more time since I am done with my classes and now I am “only” working on my dissertation proposal, but still…blogging seems to be such a cumbersome activity…Especially since I have recently adopted twitter for how convenient it is (I tweet from my phone often and I am almost breaking the 1,000 tweet mark). However, I have been thinking a lot about the benefits of blogging. For instance, I now don’t have to write any more papers for class (for grade), I am not required to read any more books so what am I going to do with myself if not force myself to write something that is thoughtful and meaningful? I can’t tweet that! So blogging is the way! From now on (and I know this should have started a while ago) I will reflect about my dissertation readings, fun readings, and other fun mind growing activities that I partake on a regular basis. I will also be fully redoing this blog site, and by that I mean that my online identity will be completely be overhauled. I plan on combining both my portfolio website with my blog, and adding other pages, and all of those will be located at the domain that I already own: addysdesigns.com. This might be a lot of work, and maybe this will only be up by next year, but I am very excited about it.
