My First Semester of Graduate School

For the last several months, I've been missing in action.  I've been a hermit at home, studying religiously, as I try to balance graduate school with another program I am enrolled in.  In the begining of the semester, I would study nearly 5 hours a day (yes, really!).   I would sleep only 4 hours a night.  Now, I sleep a little more and I have had a little bit of time to read a good book, but other than that I have been completely consumed in my school work, especially right now as finals week approaches.  I need a 4.0 G.P.A. if I want to survive and now, i'm fighting to maintain my G.P.A!

All I can say about my first semester back in school is that it has been one of the most incredible experiences ever!  I am grateful to have moved on in my life, so that I could chase after my dreams.  It's been an adventure and well worth the risk!  And all because of one little decision to take a single step forward.  I couldn't be more happy.  It's the best deicision I've ever made.

Unfortunately, whenever I get busy, I end up missing in action and can be hard to find. But I am still around!

Today, I needed a small writing break.  I have some posts ready to be published, but I did not download the photos for my blog yet.  But as soon as I get my next break, I will!

For now, I have to get back to studying.  I have a paper due tonight and a 15 minute presentation tomorrow on a difficult topic. 


  1. I do the same thing when I'm busy. Its like I have blinders on for anything but studying. Its so good that you are doing something you truly love, hopefully that helps make all the hard work bearable :) Good luck on your upcoming finals and projects!!

  2. Nice to see a new post from you! Good luck on the final! And get those 4.0 GPA!

  3. Wow, sounds so intense! How long is your grad program expected to take? Good luck with the end of the semester!

  4. Thanks so much everyone for the comments! It's nice to hear from everyone and I can't wait until winter break, so I can follow-up on everyone's blogs too! =)

    Yes, it is VERY intense becuase i'm in two programs. I'm insanely busy. LOL But it really does help that I enjoy what I'm doing. hehe

    It may take up to 2 - 3 years, but i'm not sure yet. Next semester will determine everything. =) Thanks!

    Good luck to everyone also!


Thank you for your comments!
