grad school should be its own tag

I think I'm actually starting to crack from the pressure of having more work to do than is physically possible in a week. How do people do this?

More importantly: how do I do twelve more weeks of this?

Also: Dear cold/virus/bug thing,

Seriously, go away. It's enough that I have to read everything the first time - seeing double isn't helping. Do you think Professor CrazyPants will take 4 written pages on nose-blowing techniques instead of urban migration analysis?

No love,

a) I'm skipping A.
b) I like that you use smiley faces. Smiley faces are good. They show confidence.
c) I once had a professor in grad school who wasn't an asshat. Although one day she did expect me to sit through two and a half hours on Virginia Wolfe. That was the day I drank Coke and vodka through class. She thought it was funny 2 and a half years later.
d) You should go read my grad school tag. It's basically a collection of lists. Lists are good.
e) A happy and healthy new year to you!

a) you could have made up A!
b) like i'm changing b to be YAY because Rose <3.
c) my reaction to that is: wait, that just means it's tuesday, right? actually, that would not fly 'round these parts. english ba = happy hippies and international development ba = uptight. except for Econ CrazyPants who will happily discuss macro politics over a beer, but who has time when some idiot over-assigned?
d) last summer I made a lot of lists, and because it amused my roommate, I numbered them in binary. we covered one of the walls in our room with recycled paper and invited people to come in and write on our "wall". Suck it, Facebook.
e) seriously ... it was like a wall-sized magnetic board from college, but better. I think three months later, we never figured out some of the drunk doodles.
Screw the antagonists, the obstacles, the critics; the people in your way. Be crazy, be insane, be completely bonkers, but do it because you want to. Shock the world, take away its collective breath, and stun everyone into silence. And may they all applaud.
