Grad Student Curse

So I have absolutely no plans until 10:30pm tonight when I’ll do an improvised radio show.  The only thing I can think to do is homework.  This is a good thing, BUT I have lost all semblance of a social life because of two years of grad school.

Because I have had to refuse so many invites over the span of this degree it doesn’t even come into anyone’s minds to ask anymore.  I blame myself for this phenomenon, and I cannot wait to finish this effing degree so I can rectify the situation.  If there’s one thing I know about myself, it’s that I require a good amount of socializing to stay sane.  Bottom line, my sanity is slipping.

If I can make it to June 9th without blowing a gasket, I will have survived.  The needle is in the red, though.

  1. The 9th, hmm?
    Hey! Albeit brief, I’ll be in town that weekend. Wanna come watch one of Dara’s kickball games with me on the 9th? You let me know, pudding head.

      A tentative yes. I’m hoping that I’ll be leaving to be a part of Seattle on the 10th. I’m first on the waiting list. I also may be writing papers through to the 9th. Let’s talk closer to the date. I’d be better able to give a solid answer and hopefully avoid the scourge of your RAGE!!!!
