The reality of grad school is hitting me now. Work, research, class, and all the reading/papers/etc. to complete outside of class time are really piling up. Time management is a valuable skill, and I always thought I was pretty darn good at it. I mean, I’m prioritizing all those things, so I’m relatively confident that they’ll all get done. It’s everything else that will suffer. Like, my poor apartment needs to be vacuumed so badly. And I have a pile of clean laundry waiting to be put away. Welcome to adulthood. It’s not everything it’s cracked up to be, that’s for sure. Good thing I love the program I’m in and all the people I get to work with on a daily basis, because the next four years would suck if I didn’t.
