Follow Your Arrow

Not to complain any further about my grad school struggles, but it's my blog.. I do what I want!

So, because I need a quick procrastination tool, I am back on Tinder as well as POF because Tinder has a much slower response rate compared to POF. Also there are more laughs from POF that seem to brighten my day.

Unfortunately, this one dude on POF decided it would be a smart idea to insult my career path. Really? That's the route you've chosen to .. impress me? Or maybe you're just a jerk face. Just because your ignorant in what a social worker actually does and how much it really affects your career path of being a teacher, doesn't give you the right to just assume that I'm "handcuffed by the law into being able to do so little.."

His choice of words kept sending me over the edge, but it's possible that I interpreted it as a little more insulting than it really was. I'm super stressed out! I think I went into grad school with too much confidence, honestly. I thought hey, I did well in undergrad, I'm sure I'll be just fine!

Boy was I wrong! I was fully aware of not having a life when I began school, never did I think I would have a hard time breathing! I don't know how some people work full time while in this program. It's absolutely impossible for me to breathe when I'm only working part time!! Just so y'all can get an idea as to why I'm MIA from my blog here's my schedule:

Internship 8:00am-1:00pm
Class 1:30pm-7:00pm
Homework 7:00-?

Campus Job 8:00am-12:00pm
Class 1:00pm-7:00pm
Homework 7:00-?

Campus Job 8:00am-12:00pm
Internship meeting 12:00pm-2:00pm
Work 4:30pm-11:00pm

Internship 8:00am-4:30pm
Work(sometimes) 5:00pm-11:00pm

Internship 8:00am-4:30pm
Work 5:00pm-11:00pm
Homework is due by 11:59pm in 3 classes

Work varies usually 6-8 hour shift

Work 2:30pm-8:00pm
Paper due by 11:59pm each week


And I know that everyone else is struggling and having issues as much as I am, but why are they so calm!?
 No one is freaking out as much as I have been!

I am planning a meeting with this sweet guy I've mentioned a few posts ago, 3 whole weeks from now because it's on my fall break and it's the next free day (that I know of) and because he works on weekends (as do I) the weekdays are best for him to meet. So hopefully that will go through. Then I've got the original Ginger Beard chatting with me, I'm now his #1 on BFF on snapchat.. not sure where the heck that's going. Also.. there's GB#2, he's annoying the crap out of me but sometimes he's the only one that will respond.

There's a new dude in play.. yeah I know I know what you're thinking..what the crap Ellie?! You're complaining about not having time, yet you can keep up with all these dudes?
It's ridiculous, I know this, but it's fine.. So new dude.. nickname: Walker
He lives on a farm with many many horses and TN Walker is a horse breed, so yeah Walker it is. This dude seems interesting. He's currently taking classes at the same college I am but our schedules are totally different. Not too much conversation has happened because last week was a bad homework week.

This post is getting too long.
Stay tuned for my Fall Swap Post! Hopefully either tomorrow or Thursday I'll be able to get it up! :)

  1. Seems like you have a busy schedule! I hope it doesn't get too hectic! Good luck with the new guy I hope it works out with him!!

  2. Oh my goodness you have a busy schedule! Thank you for gracing us with your presence, though :) I know that grad students are cuhrazy busy. Not because I am one, but because I'm dating one. Anytime I see my boo thang we are usually at the library, doing homework, or the rare occasion where we'll sit and watch Parks & Rec or a movie together. He has class, work study, and then refs all the time in addition to his bible study guys one night a week. His life is so crazy!!

  3. Yeah, grad school is definitely rough. I went through it, and it takes up so much time!! You'll get through it, though :) Good luck with the new guy!!
