The grade…

This piece was written when I was on the cusp of recognizing that pursuing an advanced degree was not in my best interest.


The grade…


Work, study, work, study

read, read, read.

Prepared in every way I could,

But did I really?


Test arrived via e-mail.

Panic, panic, panic…


Worked as hard as I could.


Tight timeframe:

Kids needed me,

Test needed me,

I needed me.


Do I really want this?

Do I really need this?

Do I really know this?

Why am I doing this?




Stay groovy…
