39. Fall in the Valley: Teaching, Participating, Continuing, Enjoying, Enrolling and Decorating

Fall in the Cedar Valley is my favorite time of year. I love the weather, the colors, the foods, smells and holidays. So far my fall 2014 has been spent:

-- teaching fall term which includes two composition classes and and intro to psychology class.

-- participating in a chili cook-off at work. I didn't win, but I sure did have fun.

-- continuing my search for the perfect PhD program. I want to do a PhD in clinical psychology because with this degree I can stay in higher education if I choose or I can practice in the field. It opens a lot of doors for me professionally and is something I'm quite passionate about. I may have found the program that is my "number one", but won't speak on it for sure until I make my final decision on which program(s) to which I will apply.

-- enjoying Autumn's early morning fog.

-- enrolling in a certificate program in industrial organizational psychology to make me more competitive for admission into a PhD program.

and, finally,

-- decorating some Halloween pumpkins.

I hope everyone has been able to enjoy fall, spend time with loved ones, try new things, and live comfortably.
