Mastery

I'm starting in a dual degree program at Carnegie Mellon University's H. John Heinz III College in the Master of Science in Public Policy and Management next week, in a dual degree program with the law school at the University of Pittsburgh. I'm excited to start but have to take a deep breath with the major tuition burden it will represent. And though I save a year doing the dual degree program compared with enrolling in them seriatim, I'm not crazy about bumping my graduation date back to 2014... the same year as those incoming 1Ls this year.

In any event, I wrapped up my summer job at the law school the other day and am now on a bit of an adventure in New York (and perhaps to Washington later this week). My quest is to visit as many National Park Service sites as possible, and get the stamps in my parks passport, which I "discovered" a year or so ago after having let it lie dormant for around 15 years.

So, I'm hoping to see Grant's Tomb today, and then who knows from there. Huzzah!
