Grad School Is A Killer

, | OH, USA | Parents & Guardians, Siblings

(My dad and I recently saw ‘The Hunger Games’. It has also become my brother’s new favorite movie. He is away at college. I have just been offered a Graduate Assistantship at my top choice for a University.)

Dad: “We should end all of our texts to your brother with ‘May the odds be ever in your favor’.”

Me: “Oh! I forgot to tell him! Let me text him…” *reading my text aloud*I got offered a graduate assistantship at [school]! May the odds be ever in your favor.

(My brother replies a few minutes later, and I laugh so hard at his answer that I can’t even read it out loud to my dad.)

Dad: “What’s so funny?”

Me: “He’s calling grad school The Hunger Games. Cutthroat, high stress, and not enough time or money to eat. May the odds be ever in your favor.”
