Well, so much for my expectations of grad school. As I remember, I was told by a bunch of graduates (don't remember who or how many) that after braving 4 years of Mac grad school would be a breeze...yeah right. Lately I have so much homework that 9AM to 9PM days at the chem department are becoming the norm. Classes are tough (but interesting thank goodness) and on top of that there's work which I actually like a bunch but takes a lot of time to prepare for. It's like one my toughest semesters at Mac all over again - with the exception, of course, that downtown Minneapolis is a 10 min bus ride away :)
So yeah, things have been pretty interesting lately. I rushed a frat and met a bunch of cool people. I actually managed to get in as well! - although I'm not so sure as to what to do about it now. I'm busy enough as it is at the moment, but I'm sure it'd be a lot of fun. Whatever happens happens.
I'm definitely looking forward to the weekend. We're throwing our first official house party, and it seems that our keg invitation managed to convince a lot of people to commit. It's gonna be one heck of a party, if we actually succeed in cleaning up and preparing the house by friday evening.
So do I miss the Mac days? Maybe a little. Do I miss the friendships? Yes, many of them. Would I go back? Probably not. I'm thoroughly enjoying grad school and there's just so much to do all the time that my head's spinning.
Uhhh....so where's my research advisor?at September 28, 2005 12:29 AM
