When we I was in the grad program I used to wonder what the heck people did with their free time. When you study and work at the same time it is a complete mystery as to how people fill their weekends. I can only assume that people with children feel the same way towards childless people. What are you freaking wasting your time on?
But now, as a person with just a single job to attend to I know what people do with their time! They have fun! They watch Gossip Girl and eat sundaes. They good on weekend trips! When people invite us to go somewhere I still feel surprised that we can say yes instead of something lame about studying. On memorial day weekend we went hiking at Pt. Reyes. It would so fun! I always though I wasn't outdoorsy but it turns out I was just freaking exhausted from school. Please I'm telling you all, if I ever say that I am going back to get another degree, do me a favor and tie me up for at least a week.
