Life has been crazy and not in a sweep me off my feet, good crazy. More of a I want to pull my hair out, I miss sleep crazy.
First change – I started a new full-time job at a major retail chain. Training has been a great experience so far and I’ve met a lot of new people who are super nice. The downside to training is that… well, I’m training. I keep being moved from department to department and have absolutely no idea where I am going to land. Another downside is that Thanksgiving is next week and this will be the first time in 5 years that I am working retail for the holidays. It’s going to take some adjustment not being able to spend days with my family. On a good note – I am so freakin’ excited about my new job! Retail is a passion and I’m finally back in it.
Second – I’m still working my other 2 part-time jobs. Honestly, the hours are meniscal each week and I enjoy what I’m doing so I can’t really complain. They are just adding to what is keeping me uber busy.
Finally – 30 days until graduation! One month. I can do it. I can do it. I have no choice at this point! Projects. Projects. Projects. They are kind of taking over my life. Group projects, individual ones, tests to study for, papers to write. It’s ridiculous how much time I’m spending at the library each evening. Honestly, I got done an hour earlier than expected tonight and that’s why I’m writing my post.
I can talk on and on about how tired I am or how I constantly seem to be sick; and perhaps that’s what this post will come off as, but I don’t want it to. I wouldn’t change one thing about my life right now. I really don’t know what I’ll do when I have graduated. It’s going to be a surreal, out of the body experience for a bit.
Grad school has been an amazing adventure and I’m pretty proud that I kicked its butt. Maybe, the next time I have some free time, I’ll write about my favorite parts of grad school… ya, that’d be a good, exciting posts. Right? Right!
Until next time…
