Totally agree with you, Jordan!

Thanks, Kiara! In your case, it sounds like you have found something that you really love and want to commit the time to becoming the best you can be. I agree that grad school becomes easier when you know why you are doing it. When that is the case, you focus on the learning process rather than obsessing over grades and the minutia of course assignments.

For me, a master’s degree in social work gives me the opportunity to develop myself — it’s not just about getting As. I see too many people viewing it as the end of the world if they don’t do well on their assignments when, in the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t really matter. Having a larger purpose, a bigger “why” that is driving you, is essential.
