Baby + MBA = Ouch

As you may have gathered from recent posts, life feels hard these days. Honestly, I sort of hate all my classes. Not because they're bad (though one in particular is a let down) but because I have absolutely no interest in being in school at the moment. My enthusiasm for ye olde MBA has abated in a big way lately. A few too many study groups and painful business jargon incidents and missed exercise opportunities for my taste these days. The thing that keeps me going every day is the idea that some day (ever pending) life will get easier. And it doesn't. And once in awhile I wise up to the reality and feel very blah. Like now. I keep encouraging women to take on work and baby and baby and MBA and, honestly, it's absurdly difficult. It requires some serious masochism. Maybe I should have taken a year off or the upcoming summer off ... but too late now! :)

In the spirit of truthfulness ...

Well... you are one tough Mama. I'm sure you will get through and get what you want. I met this lady at Kellogg who is Mom of two babies and going into Ibanking. It's a tough life, but pursuing your dream with all the people who loves you might be worth all the 'masochism'. *hugs* We believe in you.
