Grad School Diary: Looking to the Past
In my junior year of college I went wild and took six classes, with two jobs on the side. I worked at Pinkberry serving yogurt to my fellow yogurt fanatics, and also worked in my school's computer lab. It was my craziest semester, but the most fun. I got four A's and two A-'s (I was very upset about the minus attached to the other two A's). How did I do it? I don't know. The only thing I know is that I loved all my classes. They were great classes and it would have sucked to not do well in them. Also, they all changed my life. On the job front, I enjoyed the free yogurts, and did most of my homework as I monitored the computer labs.
I love this memory, and I try to boast about it every chance I get, or I bring it up even when there is no reason to do so. As you can see, I am blowing my own horn here. One thing this experience gave me is the belief that I can do a lot of things at the same time if I really enjoyed them, and managed my time accordingly. I am around that corner where I have a ton of things coming at me all at once, and I am a little tired. But I know I can do this. I know I can do school, the blood sucking Mawusi (I write this fondly), my new part-time retail job…and make an entry here at least five times a week.
To finishing hard!
