10 Things I Learned in My First Term of Grad School

  1. Sleep is not necessary extremely important.
  2. I do my best work 30 minutes after the deadline.
  3. Coffee is a legitimate need.
  4. When they say 15-20 hours of work per class each week, that’s what they mean. 5-10 hours will not be sufficient.
  5. “I will read all the books” quickly changes to “I will skim all the books”.
  6. Spotify can carry me through 6 hour study sessions.
  7. All hobbies have disappeared.
  8. What was I thinking? is a question that plays on repeat.
  9. “Change this to MLA format” is the most terrifying thing I’ve ever heard. (I thought it was MLA format?! *panicked Googling*)
  10. Writing is hard and terrifying and I love it so much.
