That’s right folks, ya gurl Brittany has survived one week at school and already has a mouthful to say about it.
So after one extremely busy week back I have a few thoughts on my choice to do graduate studies.
First, meetings are exhausting af and no one should have to sit through a meeting that is more that 2 hours long.
Second, nothing is less inspirational than hearing your professor tell you about how little everyone else cares and how much work you will have to do.
Third, being a teacher’s assistant for a class you have already taken and never attended is probably the greatest irony of my entire existence.
Fourth, the attempt to balance multiple readings, course work, my MRP and work is all becoming too real.
Fifth, I have realized I have no idea how I will handle 40 hour work weeks when I can’t even handle the first week back in school.
Sixth, I am extremely glad to have found a group of misfits I can spend all my time with this year. It is refreshing to have new faces and new perspectives in my program.
Seventh, I need sleep. Not your normal eight hours, but all the sleep I can get, whether it be a thirty minute cat nap or a ten hour un-interrupted sleep session.
Stayed tuned for more updates as this journey continues. Week one was brutal but I’m sure it is bound to spiral down hill from here.. Cheers to grad school!
