So I started working on my master's degree last week. For the past few years, when I've discussed it, I've said that I'll have to do the work, but that I didn't think anything on there would be particularly difficult.
I've found that's not entirely true. The major difference is the amount of time I have. When I worked on my library technician diploma, I was working at a mill, and my hours were offset from my family's somewhat. I always had a few hours at home alone to work on things. But things are different now. Amanda's schedule and my schedule overlap almost perfectly, so any time I spent on schoolwork is time taken away from spending with her.
I'm sure we'll get into a smooth rhythm once I get used to being in school again, but for the moment, I feel kind of bad about it. However, nomatter how busy I am with schoolwork, there will always be some time for Mario Kart with Amanda! (Mario Kart 8 is awesome.)
