April, We Know it’s Heavy

by Joshua Wilson

The life of a programmer.

April never comes as a surprise and it surely brings showers in my experiences with this month. It’s the 9th inning, closing ceremony, and the grand finale. For students, faculty, and administrators it is the last push for events and programs, end of the year assessments, reports, dinners, celebrations, meetings, etc. April is what I call heavy. We load it all in this month because we have to, and because it is needed.

So April brought showers. It was probably my hardest working month as a professional in managing the load, adventures of year two, and trying to make it to summer. A faint light at the end of the tunnel the closer I moved toward summer the further I felt away from reaching the tunnel. You see the truth is, I tripped along the way.

What, you may ask, was April for me? It was everything I wrote above plus major show production, 40+ events, successes and failures, emails, and more emails, and so much more. And now it’s May.

Like a freight train that comes to a complete stop in a matter of seconds, May has arrived and I couldn’t feel better. To graduate students and professionals alike, we survived. Hello summer. Here’s to recovery, planning ahead, and sunshine.
