Well, it’s official. Grad school is kicking my ass.
In the best way possible. But, holy crap it’s a lot of work. It’s not like college where I didn’t do any of the reading, unless I was looking for a quote to go in my hobbled together last minute paper.
I guess the biggest difference is that I’m way more invested in this. Like, I could put in less effort and do ok… but I actually give a shit. And I want to do well, and learn stuff, not just do ok.
Anyway. The downside is, I quickly decided I couldn’t do grad school, renovate a house, and work 30 hours a week. Oh yeah, not to mention, my precocious toddler. 😉
So my last day of work is Tuesday. It’s bittersweet. I like everyone I work with. Well, my direct supervisor…. eh, I’ve even learned to tolerate him. But, seriously, this is the most supportive group of people I have ever worked with. I will miss them.
I hope I still get to hang out with my work BFF! Well, we’re going to a concert together this summer. 🙂
I own a home. I’m in grad school. And I have an amazing little girl.
Life is pretty good. ❤
