I started grad school this week. Here are the highs and lows thus far.
High and Low. On Monday, I had a paper due for my class at four. I did it that morning, after bribing myself with a trip to Target. I told myself that if I finished my paper before noon, I could go to Target. I finished at 1:30 and still went to Target. High- I finished the paper. Low-it was the first day of class and I was already bribing myself.
High- During the three hour class, I only got up and randomly left ONCE (for a necessary mind-clearing walk and bathroom break). For a person with old lady stiff knees and toddler level attention span, that is a new record. I believe I shall reward myself with a trip to Target.....(just kidding.)
High- Almost everyone in the class seems truly interested in becoming a teacher. I've been in education classes before where this has not been the case.
Low- At least one person is an annoying question asker "Is this a handout, or a packet?" Um it is a piece of paper sweetie, call it what you want but make sure you read it for next time.
High- Holy free parking Batman! Holy class is actually close to where I parked, Robin!
And that is pretty much grad school.
