WOW, eejm! I can't imaging working full-time AND going to grad school AND having a baby on top of all that!
What did you study in grad school?
It sounds corny, but they kind of stopped me from going off the deep end.
That's not corny at all. I'm going through a rough time myself. My boyfriend of 7 yrs and I just broke up, and things weren't going that great these last couple of months, and one of the things that has kept me from going off the deep end has been watching and listening to the Conchords. You just can't stay sad when you're watching/listening to them. They've kind of been my "escape" from the real world. Also, coming to this forum and interacting with other FOTC lovers as been really great.
Awww, I'm sorry about the lousy couple of months, funny schipperke
I hope that going back to school in the fall is the change in course you need. I love your signature, by the way - the smile on Jemaine's face makes him look like he's being tickled.
I got my MS in Adult Learning, Performance, and Development - it was a program designed for people working in training and HR. I don't really work in the field now, but I'm glad I got the degree. Some of the things I learned helped with the previous, crappy job I just left. The course was a working adult program, so the faculty was pretty easygoing and willing to work around other life stuff, so long as you could demonstrate you understood the material. Having the baby wasn't bad either, since my son was too little at the time to know when I was gone. I had a few courses I took online, so that worked out well too. It takes time, but its so worth it!
