i had an 8am or 9am each semester in my master's program. it was for the fail too. luckily i had great professors who kept us engaged and didn't mind if we brought breakfy to class.

i hope i never have another 8am for the rest of my life. however, since i'm considering getting a doctorate...i might not be so lucky.

I'm not sure if the Arts faculty at my uni even does anything before 9am. I've heard of other faculties having 8am classes though. I pity them. Personally, a number of my lecturers and course co-ordinators have pointblank refused to do anything before a certain time, e.g. 10am or 11am. I had one guy who only ever took courses in the afternoon. He was awesome.

I'm just hoping my luck with regards to Fridays holds out. This is my second-last semester before my Honours year, and so far, I've never gone in on a Friday. I'm bloody used to my three day weekends, heh.

right now I teach an 8 am class 2x week. I have a lab at 8 and two other 2.5 hr classes at 8 as well. then I go to clinic three days til 1. One day I'm at Children's hospital and the other I work at a practice for people who are physically challenged. Friday I have surgery 2x a month.

I'm happier that this semester is my last and lightest one

... you call that light? I hate to think what your previous semesters were like!

I like being kept productive myself, but not kept too busy.

actually it is. I get home most days at 3 or 4. Last year I was gone until 10 pm every night.

Next year will be bad again but I figure I'm used to it

Oh, and I have a PT job in there as well

10pm? Oh dear. That sounds like just a bit much! Did you at least get a later start with that? Though I'm not sure I'd be happy about 10pm even with a later start!

I must admit I first read "PT job" as "Porcupine Tree job" and nearly got excited. They truly have become my favourite band. Mmm, Porcupine Tree.

Now you lot are getting me worried. I'm planning to go on and get my Masters and PhD in History.

Then again, it sounds like Aussie undergrad is a bludge compared to US undergrad (yet somehow the Uni of Melbourne still one of the top 20 in the world), so hopefully the same holds true for postgrad!

my grad was in higher education and student affairs (or educational leadership and policy studies...they can't decide on a name, neither can my school.) so my assistantship was also in student affairs. residence life one year and campus programming the next. thus, they could get away with milking us for our hours. on the plus side, tuition was free

i hear higher education in general is way different in the u.s. compared to the rest of the world. for example, MA programs are only one year, PhDs probably don't take a billion years to finish like they do here, and undergrad has a much more specialized curriculum from w hat i understand.
