I didn’t realize just how much I missed learning until last Monday, which was the first day of classes of my first semester of graduate school.
I take that back. I’d say I realized the day before, on Sunday, because I worked through the first 3 homework assignments for my online class that had opened that day — the day before classes started.
But come Monday, my face-to-face class was canceled due to my professor’s illness. Instead of excitement, I felt disappointed. But come Wednesday, my butt was in a front-row seat (with 3-4 empty rows behind me), and I was ready to learn.
Yes. I am that person.
On Thursday, I told Mark that I want to do grad school, and that I hope he can find a job around here. I’ve tasted it. I like it. No matter what my career goal or outcome, I am loving class. I love learning things. I love growing. So instead of grad school being a means to an end (I have to get my MFA in order to teach design to college students), it’s an opportunity to grow.
I’m taking class with my favorite professor from my undergraduate studies, and I’m probably going to turn right back into the teacher’s pet. Yeah. I’m proud of that.
PS I’m sure you’re all wondering who won the giveaway.
MY MOM, who reads daily and usually comments via facebook, text, or e-mail … and typically signs things “your mom”. We’re obviously not related …
PPS — point of pride: my mom is the mayor of my hometown.
Thanks for reading, mom!
How do you feel about school … are you in school? did you hate school? would you go back?
