A new gift idea for your loved ones: Graduate School Barbie (TM).

Graduate School Barbie comes in two forms: Delusional Master’s Barbie (TM) and Ph.D. Masochist Barbie (TM).

Every Graduate School Barbie comes with these fun-filled features guaranteed to delight and entertain for hours: Grad School Barbie comes out of the box with a big grin on her face that turns into a frown after 2 weeks or her first advisor meeting (whichever comes first). She also has adorable black circles under her delightfully bloodshot eyes.

Comes with two outfits: a grubby pair of blue jeans and 5-year-old gap T-shirt, and a floppy pair of gray sweatpants with a matching “I hate my life” T-shirt. Grad School Barbie talks! Just press the button on her left hand and hear her say such upbeat grad school phrases like, “Yes, Professor, It’ll be done by tomorrow”, “I’d love to rewrite” and “Why…

School is Hard!!!

I knew school was going to be hard, I just didn’t realize how much. I think it a combination of things. It’s the fact  thatI have been out of school for five years and work two jobs. I am just tired.

I always enjoyed the classroom setting; however, the convenience of having things online are phenomenonal. I think I would just collapse from exhaustion if I had to attend class on campus. I am still trying to find the balance of working online and getting things competed in a timely matter.

Grad school can be intimidating due to the shortness of the program and the intensity of the subject. I am already thinking about my thesis, internship, and experiment. I am going to be doing a lot of early brainstorming to complete this program. My goal for this long weekend is to work out my scheduling for the rest of the program ( email that for review to advisor), work on fellowship applications, and complete my assignments for the week… So much reading. I feel like I am just reading and then not completely reading just due to time… It’s definitely a challenge.
