After grad school, you still get up at 5:15am, because look at all the free time you have in the morning! Then you obsessively wash the dishes and check facebook and feel guilty about not having gone for that run you planned and then forgot about. Because, come on, it’s 5:30 in the morning and that means it’s hard to remember things.
After grad school, you are thrilled about your free evenings, so you fill them with friends and plans and to do lists. You take a lunch break and have accidental, ridiculously messy adventures with your dogs (story coming soon). You drive to pick up your farmshare and you don’t care that it takes half an hour because, guess what? There’s no homework waiting for you at home.
After grad school you stop going to the gym because you no longer have to juggle so many things and apparently you left your time management skills at grad school. You read three books for fun in two days. You drink a lot of beer (which, to be fair, is only 2 beers a day. It’s a lot more than you had space for in grad school.). You plan vacations with your wife. REAL VACATIONS.
After grad school, you close your business down and start working for someone else. Technically, two someone elses. This is also a story for another post, but the thought is that if you sit still too long, everyone will suffer, so KEEP THOSE JOBS COMING. Plus, there are definitely puppies involved, and very cute ones at that.
After grad school, on the day your degree is supposedly conferred, you update all of your work emails with comma M.S., Behavior Analysis because SERIOUSLY. You definitely earned that.
After grad school, you find yourself writing little posts in your head again…
Bird, M.S., Behavior Analysis
