PHD search

So... now that I am graduating and want to advance my education into the phd process, I began the active search to find an international economics or environmental economics program.

Who would think that there were so many questions and nuances involved in finding the right program for you?  I certainly didn't. I knew that it would be difficult to find a program that fits me but I didn't know how deep into the rabbit hole I would have to venture!

I started a journey in middle school when I first knew I wanted to earn my phd. Today, I am putting my good intentions into the universe and am filled with hope about this process. I heard a quote from a friend on fb today that really touched a note. Its simple yet profound...

                    "Don't look back, your not going that way."

Here we go <3

STOP Ferrets From Being Tortured!

STOP Ferrets From Being Tortured!

I am truly thankful for the sacrifice that our armed services make on the daily. I do understand that in the process of guaranteeing the best medical treatment for our armed services is of the utmost importance, however guaranteeing the protection of our most defenseless animals is also extremely important.  One life does not have more value over the other life.

The practice of Lackland Air Force Base’s 59th Medical Wing, which continues to repeatedly shove hard plastic tubes down the throats of dozens of ferrets is irresponsible and unethical. Alternative simulators are available and have been shown to be an effective replacement for a live animal. This is an unnecessary procedure that can cause bleeding, pain, collapsed lungs & even death to these vulnerable and defenseless creatures.

Please take a just a second to help!
