Grad School Is Not for the Faint of Heart

It’s been three days since I started school and I can already feel the sleep deprivation and lack of social life starting to creep in.

It’s actually funny because I used to complain about undergrad not being challenging enough and wellit’s safe to say that I no longer have that problem!

Today, was especially tough.

I made careless mistakes on a quiz and got my head torn apart by time value of money and perpetuity.

me + finance = recipe for disaster

On the bright side, I wasn’t the only one struggling. So, it’s nice to know that I’m not at this alone.

So, before I go off burying my head in books for the rest of the evening, I found it adequate to remind myself why I’m here and why no oneabsolutely no one, should give up on their dreams:

a) Nothing worthwhile comes easy
b) It’s impossible to grow without pushing yourself
c) You never truly fail, unless you give up
d) Things are never as bad as they seem in the moment
e) It’s okay to feel overwhelmed

So, there you have it!

That will be my mantra for the remainder of the year. But for now, off I go to study and of course, eat my weight in ice cream.
