I just can not get over the fact that I don’ t have to study or do school work every waking minute. I have been in grad school for the last 2 years, taking a full load of tough coursework, and doing an assistantship to pay the bills. Now that I’ve finished my coursework, and completed my internships, I almost can’t believe I have time to do things like browse http://www.expertsatellite.com/, take leisurely walks, read for pleasure, etc. The list goes on and on. I’m so used to having to make every minute of every day count and be productive, and I guess I got used to that. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I don’t have anything I have to do, that I don’t have any deadlines. It’s a strange feeling to go from being under a ton of stress to having no stress at all. It’s amazing, actually. Freedom and leisure time are so very sweet to me now that I’ve spent so much of my time without either of them.
