WSWCGS Tribute #2 – Quarter System Theme

This post is another tribute to the hilarious blog What Should We Call Grad School – with the theme of the quarter system.

How the quarter system made me feel  my first quarter

quarter system 01

Or maybe more like this

the quarter system again7

But by the end of the year you start to feel like you’re getting used to it, and that maybe you can relax a bit… little do you know…

quarter system again 04

But by the second year you think you’ve mastered the crazy pace… just to be reminded of your hubris

quarter system again 03

Because you think you can coast through it this time.. and you do… until just after midterms…

quarter sustem  again 02

The white kitten is my responsibilities and the grey kitten is me during week 8…

white kitten is my responsibilities the gray is my motivation during week 8

Week 9 comes around and you are still partying and then suddenly you realize how much time you have left to finish your work…

when you think youre ontop of things then realize its week 9 and you havent started your term papers

Then I’m like this by week 10

week 10 of the quarter

and after final papers are turned in

how i look by the end of the quarter

WSWCGS Tribute #1

So I recently discovered the blog “What Should We Call Grad School”, and I stayed up for hours going through the posts and cracking up! I was so inspired I wanted to do my own take on the idea. This is one of MANY tribute postings I plan on doing.

 

When I start to raise my hand in class then realize I haven’t been paying attention to the discussion at all
