Taking a deep breath...

Saturday, September 04, 2010

So I survived my first week of school with the kids and my first week as a grad student. I like my kids and it's been very nice having some of the same students from last year. It's like we picked up right where we left off and we already have a strong relationship so they are respectful, not afraid to ask questions, etc. The grad classes are going to be very challenging and i wish i didn't have to have a master's (thanks No Child Left Behind). I was starting to enjoy being able to relax a little, but oh well. I'm not sure how they are going to go but one step at a time I guess. And on a possible note, after these 2 are done I'll only have 10 more classes to go and I like the people in my classes. It's a cohort so we'll be together for all of our classes for the next 3 years. I noticed that at dinner I was much more hungry than I was before school started. i need to get better things for lunch. Right now i've been doing oatmeal or leftovers. Since i usually eat it late i'm really hungry at dinner. I also wasn't able to do the gym during the week but did keep tracking my food and when i went out with my coworkers and classmates I decided not to drink and to get food instead so something is better than nothing. overall this week I gained 0.4 lbs, but the last 2 weeks i lost 3 lbs so I was expecting close to no change this week. It's going to be an interesting year but i'm going to keep with it and things always seem to work themselves out. Now back to grading papers and maybe attempting some of this HW that i'm kinda clueless about lol.

    I like your attitude! You'll get through it, one day at a time, just stay focused.

    Sounds like a long, full week. Even though starting a Masters program is a hassle now I think you'll be glad in the long run you have it. Grad school is a lot of work though... I'm in my final year of a Masters in Macro Social Work. I am going to be soooo relieved when it's over!
