Today was my first day as a graduate student. I spent the hole day, at home, sitting in front of the computer, making sure I get as much work done today as I could. The work I did today wasn’t difficult, but this was just the intro. It will get tougher, there’s a lot of work in the syllabus; but I can do it!
It’s really not that different that going to a regular class, except it feels like it’s more work because it takes me longer to complete a task because I go at my own pace. I also think I did more than I was supposed to because I’m afraid of forgetting something or falling behind.
So far it feels great to be studying again. I hope this feeling lasts.
