19.) BEST PART: Her co-workers were the best people. WORST PART: So much time pressure and a heavy teaching load. There were also expectations for publishing. She also mentioned that it left very little time (if any) for a life. She had no life!

20.) Life after GSU: Now she has more time control!! She still writes textbooks and makes presentations. She is still a member of professional organizations. She likes to spend free time gardening, traveling, reading, and taking photographs just to name a few.

21.) Her advice is to do well because it'll pay off in grad school. She says to take advantage of events like theatre. Also to get involved in the community or cultural events.
