Ok sidenote, how is it that I tend to come onto my blog on a monthly basis without even knowing? It’s like I have this body clock of “I should blog” alarm going off. Wish it happened weekly, Jesus!
Anyway, I’m here not even a month into graduate school. It’s weird, cool, and teaching me a whole lot about myself. First of all, ain’t nobody going to make me do the work except me. It’s difficult to hold myself accountable. I found that I need to wake up and get out of the house or else I won’t start doing my work until nightfall. It’s a funky process. I’m super into what I am learning at school. That’s always a plus because it means I am in the right place.
It’s been tough going because I’ve had a hard time focusing. The lack of a routine has been throwing me off. I work when I can but I’m doing my best to put school first so I can get accustomed to my workload before taking on other jobs. It feels like I’m in the grad school bubble which is a bit sucky because I see my friends less and I haven’t been able to check in with family during all these natural emergencies. I’ve got this tunnel vision for this course.
One relief? It’s my significant other. He’s been incredibly supportive and we’re in this calm, lovely place in our relationship. We did all the muddling through and we’re still discovering new things to put effort to all the time, yet we’re so incredibly in tune with one another. It’s huge for me to have someone that gives me peace. To have this healthy relationship is such a blessing even when he peeves me, hah. We can just be and plan and do. I like that so much.
