I completed my undergrad journey two years ago, and soon, I will be starting my new journey as a graduate student. My preparation for both journeys was and is entirely different. Hopefully, there will be new experiences opposite to when I was preparing and working towards getting my B. A. I didn't focus on time management or have a healthy balance between school, work, and social life. I was all over the place and did not focus on what was most important. My time as an undergrad wasn't delightful, but I'm hoping my graduate experience is better. While I'm still preparing for my Masters, I am learning my way around a new city and job, so I am very mindful of my time. The lessons I have learned as an undergrad prepared me for what's next in my journey.
For anyone interested in going to graduate school, please consider that it is a big decision, so take your time and find a school/program that fits you best. I suggest moving at your own pace to balance your studies and personal life. Most importantly, focus on your mental health and take breaks when needed to reset.
