Me! 

I feel like I’ve been in school forever. I started at one school and got an associate’s degree, went to another, made it for a few semesters before I got burnt out and lost financial aide and now I’m attempting to become an xray tech but I’m really not sure if I’m going to finish this either. Working crazy at the beginning of this semester really left no time for me to study so my grades have tanked. Not sure if I can pull them up by the end of the semester either… I’ve been in school for four years and all I’ve got to show is an associate’s. 

Blegh. 

ETA: I graduated high school May 25, 2008 and started college May 28, 2008 and I’ve been going nonstop ever since -save s semester here and there over the last year and a half because of my financial aid issues- so yeah. I am very tired of being in school.

Well… I literally just took a Business Law exam tonight, so right now? Definitely! Haha.

But I’m about a semester away from graduating… and the more I think about it, the more I REALLY wish I had more time here! I think I’m going to do an extra semester so I can pick up my minor.

I’m three weeks away from getting my undergrad!!! So I’m definitely having senioritis hardcore, haha!! I really loved my college, but I’m ready to focus more on the career I plan to have in more specialized education (graduate school) I will begin in September. I feel like college is a great time to figure out what you want to do with your life, butnow that I’ve figuredit out…I’m ready to be outta here! And I don’t really know how I feel about 3 more years just to get my masters (of divinity at a seminary)…oh well, after THAT I’ll finally be in the profession I’m aiming for!

I am glad I’m not the only one. This is finally my last year but being two years younger than my SO and having him making a significant amount of money can be really hard on times. He has helped me out hugely and that is great but sometimes I try to keep up with him or get down because I cannot contribute anything. It is also hard watching him purchase so much stuff and then having me not own anything, even though he always says it is all “ours” it isn’t official to me because my name isn’t on anything. Not to mention he wants to wait to get married until I can contribute at least a little something to the wedding and have a decent job (not student job). I am so close I just want to be done, get a job in the field that I love and get our lives started!

UGH YES I AM SO SICK OF WRITING STUPID PAPERS

Not gonna lie though, I love school.  I will miss it.  But right now I hate it, especially cause FI is sitting all snuggly on the couch and I’ve stuck myself in the office.

@bella128:  haha that’s exactly what’s happening in my house right now! SO is watching football and I’m stuck in the office, writing a paper and sitting on the bee!

Unfortunately for me, I just started my Master’s program in April, and am only 2.5 quarters in, so basically there is no end in sight! I’ll just be glad when this quarter is OVER, right before my birthday and Christmas.

I waited 7 years after undergrad before going to grad school.  I’m in my last semester of my MS  Nursing and MA Bioethics program.  I have a wicked case of senioritis….

I graduated college in 2009 and for some reason came back for another degree. I am SICK of school— but I only have 9 classes left for my next degree. Almost done!!!! Then I can start on an MBA program and studying for the CPA exam.

I went back to do my Master’s (2007-2012) and it took my FIVE years.  I could only take 2 classes at a time since I held a salaried job (and had a mortgage).  Plus I was doing an engineering Master’s and had no engineering background so I basically started with Calc I/II.  It was like half a bachelors before I could even apply to the grad schoo.  UGH.

It took foreeeevvvveerr.  I would get all teary eyed and emotional just simply thinking about the end.  Yes, I did cry at graduation.  Sweet, sheer relief.

Looking back, I am not sure how I mananged such a life with school, work, house, boyfriend.

Hold on to that ‘light at the end of the tunnel‘ vision – it’s what kept me going!!!

Ugh, yes!  I’m graduating in 25 days, though!  If I had known how hard double majoring would be I’m not sure I would have done it.  This is me right now:

I am not in school, but my husband is and I am ready for HIM to be out of school lol! He’s been in school for about six years now and graduates next month. Understandably he is more excited than I am (since he put in all the hard work) but I am seriously over it too. Good luck to all you students! I hope you get your degrees sooner than later! Smile

Dude, I was in college for 11 years and finally finished my PhD last August. AMAZING… but seriously, as soon as it was over, I missed it. The real world has all it’s own complications and I have even less free time now… which apparently was possible.

Yes, yes, yes!  I graduated high school in June 2006, and have been in school pretty much since then.  Crazy, right?  I graduate April 2014.  So another 3 semesters left.  It’s just stressful, because work is picking up for the holidays, and I’m getting nearly 30 hours a week, on top of the 30 hours of school I have a week.  I get up, go to school, come home for an hour, go to work til midnight, sleep, get up and repeat.  Weekends I work 10am-11pm usually. 

I feel like there’s no time to enjoy life!
