Marching towards the masters

In terms of school, last week was a stinker.

So many tasks to complete – almost all of which was group work. Group work is not my style. I completely understand that it is a necessary evil of schooling – but I will not go so far as to say that I can even tolerate it. Group work is like pulling teeth. Pulling teeth while simultaneously and obsessively checking your email and praying that someone, anyone has done their portion of the project.

All is well that ends well, however. I earned an A on both of the group projects. The group project in my management class was coupled with an individual paper about project. I got an A on the individual paper as well, with a comment from the professor that he sees a bit of management genius in me. Can’t help but feel good about that.

These days, I can’t help but feel good about school in general.

Maybe this is really what I’m supposed to be doing. I’m interested. I’m engaged. I’m motivated. I’m doing well. I still have my moments of paranoia – sheer fear that I am paying all of this money and won’t be able to find a job. But if I’m generalizing, I would say that I feel like I’m doing the right thing.

But lets be honest here – it’s a damn roller coaster. Next week, I’ll be reading The Annoyed Librarian and crying about how I am on the verge of dropping out.
