There have been times that I have been overwhelmed and there have been Professors that I feel are slightly inhumane with their work loads, but I feel so full of purpose right now. The people I have met are so interesting and the friendships have been so quickly made. I love what I'm learning and it has opened my mind to so many things I encounter on a daily basis.
My undergrad was about learning about myself and trying to understand the chaos that is adulthood, but with my grad school, I feel it's kind of different. Opposed to my undergrad, so many of the important things in my life are decisions I have already chosen. I'm not worried about who I will end up with because I'm married to Devin. I'm not worried about where we'll go after we graduate, because we have a mortgage. I was working two jobs the semester Devin and I were dating and first married and now? For the first time in my life, I don't have to work as a student and it is a totally different experience. I don't worry about my plan because I know I have Devin and God to help me with that.
My undergrad was essential, but graduate school? It feels like a little gift to me. A gift to just study and just really enjoy this opportunity. Already, it feels like it is flying by way too fast. For every bad experience in my life, I've had a good one, and this one is so good.
