I made it through my first week of graduate school! Praise Jesus, Hallelujah!
With one week already under my belt, the second of week of training felt like a breeze.
It was mostly practicing the work we’d be doing so we spent a lot of time fact checking documents and proofreading when we weren’t in sessions with various academic people, whose job it was to teach us something valuable about the trade we’d be partaking in.
Well, I made it through my first week of graduate school. Granted, I haven’t actually started classes yet, but I have made it through half of my training for the assistantship I will hold this academic year. I will be an editorial apprentice for the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture. The Institute publishes the William and Mary Quarterly and several dozen academic books per year.
