what the *uck?

There are days in my life when I'm absolutely sure what I'm doing and why. There are others when I'm sure I'm insane, and I wonder what the *uck I'm doing. The grad school thing is one of those what the *uck am I doing. I know that I'm going to get something out of it someday, but right now, I swear to god I'm going to kill someone before I'm done with the degree. It's a very hard thing for me.

Cause I’m a blonde, yeah, yeah, yeah!

My mom says it is June Bug season. You know the June Bug? It's the big, black bug that looks an awful lot like a roach. When I lived in Texas, we called them water roaches.

The last class!

Tonight is my last class. That is for the one I actually go to. I'm so excited. I'm so ready for this semester to be over. I didn't realize how much work went into school. Ok, busy work. Most of the work wasn't difficult, but it didn't seem to have much of a purpose. Last week in class I had a very nice conversation with a graduate from the program. It put everything into perspective for me. I'm glad I chatted with her. Just think, 2 years from now, I'll have a masters. Wow. … [Read more...]
