this is a favorite phrase at my office - "next steps." after the close of a promotion or launch we have to determine the action plan for moving forward. jonathan and i are kind of at that phase in our lives right now. he's wrapping up his 2nd year of teach for america, and with this coming to a close he's getting ready to move on to the next big adventure.
our next steps:
master of public health. jonathan was accepted to columbia, yale and nyu. we've ruled out nyu and are trying to decide between columbia and yale. a couple weeks ago he and i both took the day off and headed up to new haven for an open house. as soon as we got there i felt like hermione from harry potter. if you haven't been to yale's campus, it looks just like hogwarts!
jonathan is off to columbia's open house tomorrow. hopefully that will help us solidify this decision that we have to make by next week! from there everything will fall into place.
the next big step after that is medical school. jonathan's summer break will be spent studying for the good 'ol mcat, and he'll apply next may. it's a year away, so you never know what other ideas we will think of, but that's our plan for now, at least. we're just taking it one step at a time.
as for me...i'm still loving my dream job!
