Is it over yet?


Ok, so this one is not about VSG or weight loss. It’s about the fact that I hate, c’mon folks feel me here, hate grad school. Im so over it already. 

I started to finish my undergrad work in 2004. I went off and on because of life events, but started back full time at the end of 2010. I changed majors twice (because I’m an idiot and didn’t know what I wanted to do when I grew up) and finally graduated in November of 2013. 

I took a 6 month break and decided I really needed my Masters to both match my resume experience and to secure my income and future advancement. I still believe in that decision today.  I need my Masters.  Period.  Dammit…

With the exception of the month and half break I took when I started this new job in May, I’ve been going non-stop since Feb of 2014.  It’s online, so when I say non stop I literally mean back-to-back courses.  I’ve literally been in school full time for 5 years!!! Working full time, raising a family, and running a household along with it. 

I was supposed to graduate in December, but I failed my last class -(by 1 fucking point I might add)- which is my Achilles heel, Finance.  Starting Tuesday I am taking that damned course over again and now am scheduled to graduate in February 2016. 

I am SO burned out! And as I sit here blogging instead of working on this 12-page research paper that’s due by midnight tomorrow, I literally feel ill about my next 36 hours.  

Not worried about starting my 2-day liquids only in the morning.  Nope. I’m stewing over my great hatred for grad school.  And if I never have to write another paper again, it’ll be too fucking soon!

Now. Lemme rock this damn research paper and be done with this class… *sigh*

Carry on. 


Badass Woman

If you haven’t seen this BuzzFeed you must must must!

What an amazing woman with amazing courage. And humans can be so kind. It goes to show that people are not thinking what we think they’re thinking about us when we walk into a room.

What a badass woman. May we all have a bit of her courage inside ourselves.
