Worst time TAing today. Jetlagged from travelling for a conference, and kept tripping over my words and saying unclear, confusing things. Has anyone else ever had an off TAing day? :( Poor students in my tutorials!

The one thing I feared the most has come true. Two of my boys are sick and I have two papers due and a midterm.

has it been stressful balancing my relationship and grad school, yes. was it worth it that my fiance moved across the country with me: without.a.doubt. wouldn't change anything.

    I am actually so glad that I'm entering into graduate school married. It provides a little bit of stability to my life and she helps me out so much.

How do I get my energy back? I just feel like I want to sleep all the time even on weekends when I can sleep in a little longer. I have 0 energy.

    Yes, go with the healthy eating and exercise. That is the absolute best way to maintain energy levels. Caffeine can be useful, but if you're relying upon it you have a deeper issue which needs to be addressed.

    Great advice, I second getting vitamins. When I remember to take them they help with my energy levels. I feel like I can make it through the day without needing a nap. I went into my natural vitamin shop explained my issue and they made a recommendation for a brand.
