It’s been a hectic couple of months. I started school, dropped the maid, and worked more on this site. Here’s a quick update.

School

Studying for the masters has been the biggest adjustment, and the time it takes up is quite significant. It’s 15 hours of lectures in a week, not including homework and group projects. There are also quite a few individual essays to do up.

It really requires a shift in mindset. Absorbing information through lectures is something I haven’t done in a decade. Writing at work and at school is quite different, something which I’m still adjusting to. I think I’m improving, but its true that as you get older, its harder to learn.

Sometimes I find myself doubting if this is the right thing to do. It is a lot of hard work and time, taking me away from my family and taking care of my health. I don’t know what is the exact payoff from this.
