Now that I've really started paying attention, I'm noticing that most of what I say about my daily experiences in graduate school is negative. I don't think that's a good thing, so I'm going to do two things. First, I'm going to try to spin events more positively. Second, I'm going to start paying attention to whether I'm really unhappy here, and figure out what that may mean.

(It may partly be due to the marking; I don't think many people care for that. I want to see if negative feelings remain even after I try to spin things more positively, and after I start reading for my comp, since in the past reading theory has tended to be very satisfying for me.)

I realized tonight that many of the students beginning university in September will be exactly ten years younger than me. Ten years. The children of the eighties are almost through; soon we'll be seeing kids born in the nineties.

In related news, September will mark the beginning of my tenth straight year of postsecondary studies. A friend from my cohort is thinking of dropping out of the program; she's tired of having no money, particularly when she already has the necessary training for teaching primary school, a job that she enjoys. I can't blame her.

Ten years.

What am I doing with my life?

*pause*

Okay, back to what I hope will be my last night on this report.
