Failing Grad School 101

I already have a job in this field, why am I getting a masters again? I am not sure if it's possible to have writer's block when it comes to "module postings" but I do. It's horrible. We have to drive to FL in 2 days and I HAVE to get something accomplished. This bullshit I have to regurgitate in order to get a B in my classes is useless and quite frankly way off base most of the time. I feel like getting all stabby with the computer. I bought a Beyonce album on Itunes. I am really losing it. My work email is more stimulating than this, no I literally checked it as a break from homework. It was the highlight of my night.

That whole working full time deal is really getting in the way. Not to mention I think I am getting sick. For once I am so looking forward to being home with family... until they ask me about classes. I think it's a crime to lie on Thanksgiving?

All of this and I am considering a PhD? Next time around remind me to pick something interesting or at least mildly challenging so I can rationalize spending time on it.

What a cluster fuck. I am having a hard time composing 4 paragraphs on a subject I deal with every single day because it is so incredibly simple that I can't say more than 3 sentences. This is how to fail out of grad school 101.

Note: B- equals failing, because if you get a B- you have to take this mind numbing crap all over again.

love and something witty.

I'm thinking of starting another Master's in a few months? WTF? This degree is a challenge in personal willpower. Right now, Colby and his Las Vegas transit budget are beating me into total submission. Not to mention the grant class that I'm already taking over.

I really loved this post - mostly because I'm in the middle of working on my masters now, too - only I'm in Scotland because it sounded like a great idea. Don't get me wrong, Scotland is wonderful, but I ask myself daily why I thought it was a good idea...

Good luck!
