Last night, I took my last final of my first Fall semester in grad school. It still hasn't hit me that I'm actually done with a whole semester. Only 3 and a summer left. I will be the first person to say that grad school ain't easy. Not even close.
Will it be worth it one day? Abso-dang-lutely.
Have I lost sleep because of it? Every night.
Have I missed opportunities because school came first? Constantly.
Will I change these things next semester? Absolutely not.
Does my bank account hate grad school as much as I love it? More than I can fathom.
Hopefully that will change soon though.
So, what have I been doing other than studying my ass off?
Well, car shopping. I love my Charlie, but he's 10 years old and driving 40 miles one way twice a week isn't making him any older.
I think I've settled on the Camry. Now, the hard part... the car dealerships.
I've also been playing a TON of violin. Just to make a few extra dollars on the side. Last weekend I played Handel's Messiah with 3 days notice and made $250. This weekend, I have 3 cantatas, and will hopefully make $375.
Other than a ton of online shopping, just work, work, and more work.
