The LAST first day of class
August 20, 2012 § Leave a comment
Ok, here I go. I’m about to embark on my first day of class for the last time. That’s right, after this fall semester my graduate school career will be over.
Kind of nerve racking to think that school is almost done.
Also, it’s nerve racking to think about the projects, tests that are about to come my way all while holding down 2 jobs.
I can do it. I can handle anything for a few months. I can do it.
During grad school, I’ve learned a few things:
1) I actually did absorb some information during undergrad
2) It’s really important to come to every class period, unlike undergrad
3) The saying that you learn more while doing is true – I cannot explain all of the real-life concepts I understand now by having a job in management
4) Make friends. And then more importantly – keep them. They will come in handy during the classes that are more challenging. For instance, finance. That was a tough one.
