Big Day

Today is THE big day in which I reach the milestone of defending my dissertation proposal. This means, I have about a year to graduate, finish and become a Ph.D. in Marketing.

Papi's passing almost prevented me from reaching this goal, yet at the same time motivated me to not give up. We are not quitter and that would've been an affront to the value Papi placed on education.

As my nerves awaken, and my anxiety heightens, I know he will be watching and keeping me company; and one way or another he will tell me how proud he is. With this behind me, I hope to not only restart my blogging here, but to actually re-earn my status as contributor at Babalu.

Wish me luck!
