It’s cold… and wet… and snowy…
What happened to my spring weather???
Quick update and then I’m back to studying. I didn’t get an interview for the job I had applied for. That’s life. No worries. I’m better off at my current job, anyway. I can study when things are slow and I have good people to work with that I love. Things are weird and frustrating there, but, like a dysfunctional family, they are mine.
I imagine many days of frustration ahead of me and I know I’ll have a ton of studying and work to do. I’m in a program that I really like and I actually think it’s a fantastic fit for me. I suspect that I’m going to end up a big fan of Keller and DeVry. I’ve been in traditional academia for so long, I’ve forgotten that there are other avenues to education. Maybe I didn’t necessarily understand that a 100% online/distance degree had value to equal that of brick & mortar, but I’m sold on it now. The format is sleek and efficient. The expectations are clearly delineated.
And worst case on the employment front, I stay with my current job… get the full Master’s degree and then I apply like hell to get into something that pays better than my current spot.
Time to study. No point in just talking about what the future holds. I need to be working toward making it happen.
