I’m pretty excited. In September, I will move to London to begin a master’s program at the London School of Economics. The year-long program, MSc Politics & Communication, addresses the changing relationship between politics, the media and global communications. What interests me the most is the impact of technology and the Internet on political discourse and citizen engagement.
Leaving DC after 7 years won’t be easy. I love my friends here and have enjoyed the collegiate and professional life. Transitioning from my nice apartment to a tiny dorm room may also have its challenges. But, it’s time for an adventure and I’m thrilled to take it in Europe.
September may seem a litte far off, but I figure it will come rather quickly. I will continue in my current job through much of June before taking some time off for all that “personal exploration” stuff, to master my skills at eBay and Craigslist, to travel home for a big family reunion, and, of course, to start studying. I will also try to find some source of income so my roommate doesn’t kick me out.
As for after LSE, I’m not there yet. Right now, I’m just focusing on this Visa…
