Graduate school…

If you are thinking about going to grad school – definitely do it. It will open up opportunities that you would not otherwise have…

But…

Be aware that grad school is not like college. It is HARD work, ALL the time. You have to balance a job – often a graduate assistantship which means you are working long hours for little pay – with classes, and tons of other responsibilities. You will be jealous of your friends who got BAs and now have normal jobs and lives where nobody asks them to write a 30 page paper in a week while working full time and attending other classes.

Grad school, and assistantships can be extremely rewarding – and I really do enjoy it. But, there are some days when I just want to pull all my hair out 🙂
