jane keeps on trucking

keep going (read all 3 entries…)
It's official.

I didn’t pass the course.

I’m not graduating.

I feel so scared. I don’t know what to do. I don’t know how to move forward with my life. I don’t know what I’m doing.

What am I going to do? I don’t belong working in this field. I failed the class because I don’t care. I haven’t been able to get myself to do the work. I tried to pull a last-minute save, but I didn’t know how to do the assignment.

What am I going to do? I just spent 2 and a half years in grad school, hiding out … hoping some kind of answers would present themselves. I was never in this program because I wanted to be. I just didn’t know what else to do.

And now it’s over. And I’m not graduating. And I don’t have a job. And I don’t know what kind of job I might even be able to get. I don’t know what I’m doing.


Dear Wren,

you are very wise and lovely :) What you said seems true to me as well.

To Jane: at least you took the risk! You said that you were ‘hiding out in grad school’, yet how many more people hide behind husbands and wives and children? You did something that may not have been the right choice, but it was something that you believed would benefit you. And you would have been very exposed making such choices. I for one, think that is very brave.

Take care x
