I was challenged by this class, for several reasons. First, it was one of the first classes I have taken since 2012. Second, unlike my previous grad school papers, this was much less formal. Third, I had to read, analyze, and write material I was wholly unfamiliar with. Looking at the other students in the class, I truly felt like maybe I was in the wrong place. Sometimes I still think that, but I'm feeling much more at home these days.
