Happy New Year, everyone! 2014 is here — the year we earn our MSC degrees! Before we know it, August will be here and we will be receiving our diplomas! This is such a pleasant, happy thought to think about, especially because we are currently facing well below zero temperatures, and I can guarantee that on August 9th (graduation day), rain or shine, it will be warm and that, my friends, is wonderful. I’d like to wish everyone a year of success, happiness, strength, empowerment and love. May 2014 bring all of these things to each and every one of you. Good luck to my fellow MSC classmates as we begin winter quarter this Saturday! And of course, stay warm!
