Today, I met with the Director of the English MA program at one of the schools I am considering. At the end of our meeting, he said, in a partially warning voice, that the program is going to challenge me.
The thing is, I’m not afraid to be challenged; I look forward to being challenged. I consistently challenge myself because I do not like to remain static.
I’m looking forward to starting grad school in the fall for many reasons. The opportunity to be challenged being one of those reasons.
