Yesterday in my leadership class, my teacher asked us who felt burnt out. Seeing as it was an MBA class, no one wanted to really admit they were burnt out. There’s that feeling in grad school like you can’t admit any sort of defeat- even if that “defeat” is you needing a nap and some Netflix time. However, I wanted to raise my hand and admit defeat, but I didn’t because no one else did and how would that make me look?
There are two different worlds out there. The one where people are trying to “out-stress” each other and the flipside where no one wants to admit they need a break. Me, I will shout it loud and proud. I NEED A BREAK. Okay, now that we have that out of the way, let me continue my update…
This semester is EASILY one of my favorite semesters I’ve had in college (this is my 9th semester so I have built up a lot of experience). My classes are great and for the first time in a long time, I feel confident in why I chose my majors. We all have that moment where we have a break down once, twice, maybe more….about why we chose our degrees. I’ve been there too and I finally feel like slowly everything is beginning to make sense in my life a bit.
My MBA classes are really helping me put my life plan into perspective and are forcing me to consider other opportunities and I LOVE that. It seems like my undergraduate classes are the basics whereas my MBA classes are the root and the excitement behind the topics. I can’t remember the last time I truly enjoyed so many classes at once!
Anyway, if you made it this far into my off-the-wall and all over the place rant, bless you. Thanks so much for reading and I’ll be back soon!
