159/365 - JP

You described graduate school as the happiest time of your life. You told me of great flashes of insight, a love of the writing, and an insatiable inquisitiveness of the material. As I struggled through my own graduate work, I remembered this and became jealous.

  1. It does seem like some people are better at all of the studying and pressure and such. It makes me jealous sometimes, too.

    On the other hand, now that I'm done, I'm not very good at writing manuscripts for publication, so I don't get asked to do it very often.

    I wonder why life in general sometimes seems easier for some. It probably isn't, the problems just are broadcast or aren't public, but still.

  2. Your post reminds me of a conversation I had with my high school class and student body president, Forrest Maltzman. He said that grad school at Minnesota was the happiest time of his life. It certainly did not work out that way for me. How is it working out for you?
