Gradual Epiphany

Pause

The pace has slowed, for an ever so brief moment. I find myself sitting on the couch staring blankly at my laptop, knowing there is something I need to be doing.

I submitted my application for school on Friday. I’m hoping to get into the Masters program at CU-Denver. I’ve been thinking about it for a while, but just recently felt the timing was right. I’m excited at the prospect of getting in and learning again. Hopefully there won’t be too many prerequistes that will keep me from working on the really interesting stuff. I’m thinking that it would be challenging to do some work in the computational biology field.

The ordeal that pgm has been through has gotten me thinking. I’ve developed commercial software for almost 10 years now, and it seems to me that there are other areas where software skills could be utilized to help people in a different way. It makes sense to me that in order to understand something as complex as the human body, we’re going to need computers. I’m not sure how I can contribute, but I’m interested in finding out. So, first step is to get some background knowledge in the field; I plan to start with the certificate program at CU-Denver. We’ll see where things go from there.
