Welcome to PhD Strides

This is my first official post as a blogger.  I have been following a number of blogs for about six months now, and the women writing these blogs have inspired me daily.  They are part of the reason I will be starting my blog, but not the only.

My other main reason for starting a blog, is to keep those I already know up to date on the happenings in my new life in California.  As I trek out west, most of my family, close friends and boyfriend (Mr. K) will be more than 2,000 miles away.

So, this blog will be an account of my adventures working in Chicago, the move to Northern California, the starting of an intense PhD program in Economics, and from that point balancing studying, working, eating healthy on a budget, and exercising regularly — something I know that I am not alone in.

As such, without further ado, welcome to PhD Strides.

  1. Welcome to the blogosphere! And welcome to grad student life. You are not alone. Balance is one of the reasons I started a blog. Good luck!
