Week 3

Yeah, you missed weeks one and two, cause I didn't start this blog until week three. One of the first things I remembered about being in school when I was an undergrad, is how hard it was to study. Not because the material is necessarily difficult, but remaining focused is, at least for me. My first course of this experience has required 1 to 2 readings every other day, in addition to some writing, listening to lectures, etc. Which on the surface doesn't seem too bad, but miss one day, and you're playing catch up.

I'm not sure what I expected, I guess I expected it to be hard, and I certainly hoped it would be interesting. I think it will just take some time to get into the swing of things. It doesn't help that life continues on despite graduate school. I had to quit my job in order to make time for school. The job I had for 4 years, because they were unwilling to reduce my workload so I could study. Frustrating to say the least. So now, on top of school, social life, family, house chores, I have to look for a job. But I'm trying to keep it all in stride, this is the 'adjustment' period. I just I manage to adjust quickly.

Until next time....
