So about this Grad School thing. Yea. I have begun to accept that by agreeing to go to graduate school (or at least this program) I have agreed to sign away my life and all of the fun I used to have for the next year and some change. This past weekend my Dad and Uncle came into town to bring me some stuff for my apartment and we spent a day at Universal Studios. The sad thing is that I couldn’t even enjoy it because I was too busy thinking about how I was going to catch up on all of the precious reading time I was losing.
This is a far cry different from how things were this time a year ago. Even a few months ago. Family always came first. And not to say that my family still doesn’t come first but things have certainly changed. It’s only the 4th week of class and I am already just treading water trying to stay afloat and on top of my reading. And counting down until the end of the semester. It’s even more difficult when I see my friends status updates about how much fun they’re having in Austin or all of the things that they are doing and all of the FREE TIME that they have on their hands. I miss those days. I know that I shouldn’t be complaining because in the end this degree will be worth it. But gosh I miss free time.
