It’s that time of the school year: I’ve hit a rock.
Can you get a form of senioritis in grad school? second-year-itis?
All I want to do at this point is apply for jobs, go to conferences, network, learn on my own time and with my own deadlines, and work full time in a library. while getting paid.
Is that too much to ask?
I’ve become bored with the note taking (at this point even my bright pens aren’t helping the situation). I’ve become frustrated with syllabus errors and constant emailing between professors and classmates. I’m restless in class and have a hard time focusing on anything,even if it is something I find very interesting.
I need a mental health day. I need an entire day to sit in bed, watch some shows on hulu, knit, and not think much beyond food, bathroom, breath, repeat.
There are so many books I want to read, too many cool opportunities and projects I want to be involved in, and places (virtually and physically) that I want to explore. But instead I’m being bogged down by weekly assignments that I can’t seem to get motivated for, articles that all seem to run together, and a google reader that seems to keep growing.
I need some inspiration. The goal is in sight: just a little over 7 months until I am a Master of Library Science. Seven months until I will have my first break over 30 days from school in nearly 4 years. Seven months until I will be on the job market, officially. I want to get there. I know I can do it. I just need some inspiration.
and now a word from crazy monster:
