A Note from your Friendly Neighborhood TA

April 13 2016

If you are struggling with the material, PLEASE come and ask! I definitely didn't utilize the help sources like I should have during my undergraduate education, and now that I'm on the other side of the coin, I realize just how much I missed out on. Graduate students have chosen this material as their job, essentially. We would love to talk to you about it. In fact, we’re PAID to talk to you about it.

However.... Just don't be that guy, okay? Don't come in my office and tell me you don't know where to start if you haven't tried to start. Don't set the textbook on my desk and ask what you need to study for the test. Don't tell me you *deserve* points back on your homework. Please remember we're people too, with lives and our own work to do.


As you may have guessed, I'm a graduate student. I'm neck deep in a motivational struggle, so I don't really have any great inspirational story to tell, but there are things that make it easier.

Get a dog.
Read a book.
Surround yourself with good people who care about you.


Anyways, I’m just a 20-something living in the best city in the best state in the US. We don't ride horses everywhere and all the industry just brings tons of really interesting and vibrantly different people to town. Come see for yourself sometime.

Drop me a line if you want to trade dachshund stories or know of a super awesome thing in Houston that I need to check out.

It’s national puppy day. Go google “dachshund <insert dog breed here> mix” and try not to smile like a fool.
