First Day of Spring Semester

Today is the first day of my second semester is graduate school. The first semester was rough, but I nailed it with straight As and a huge sense of accomplishment. There has been a small voice in the back of my mind that whispers that going back to school wasn't the best idea. I've had this voice since I applied for this program at the start of 2012.

That little voice has been fear.

It's been a rough adjustment to introducing two graduate-level classes into my 40-hour work week and other obligations. I've lacked sleep, eaten poorly, stressed myself out beyond limitations... but I made it. I survived. I can do this. That little voice won't bother me this semester.

Here's to an excellent spring semester!


  1. Congratulations on the straight A's! You will crush grad school. :-)

    1. It's either I crush it or it crushes me. :) Thanks for the kudos!
