I had a *great* first couple of years in graduate school - the best few years of my life in fact. But a PhD program takes a long time, and a lot can happen along the way (*life* happens along the way). As great as my first few years of grad school were, a few years later I had completely fallen out of love with it, and with philosophy. Fortunately, by the skin of my teeth, I fell in love with it again, and made it through. But if you had ever told me it was going to be as difficult as it turned out to be, I wouldn't have believed you. Still, I wouldn't change a thing. :)

I'm glad to hear someone tell the other kind of grad school story. It's easy to get caught up in all the stressful aspects of grad school (e.g., dissertation work, job market prep), and that often results in the unique and enjoyable aspects of the experience being overlooked or minimized.
