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*
