Master's Degree

I have found the next big step to take in my life. I want to get my master's degree. Of course that statement just terrifies the crap out of me. I am afraid for my students and how they will suffer, my sanity, my family, my friends, and my future. I am excited though because it will be in technology and in a small cohort, with lots of help, no thesis, no exams, will not start until hopefully the summer and will result in more money.
If things go as I am hoping and I get into this particular college it should result in the above. I am starting to think though I will definately need to stop the Europe trips for the next two years, plan a big one for when I am finished (this will definately push me through); also start looking into a job to start in the summer and the weekends throughout the school year. Any suggestions on where I should go in two years and what job I should look into? Post them here!

MANDY! Thanks ever so much for your comment on my blog - you're a star and all the more bright for deciding to go for the masters - may I suggest the University of Derby or Nottingham so that I may insist that you and I attend lunch every day?

Hey cuz!

I am very excited for you! Even though you are nervous, and understandably so, I think that you will definitely appreciate the growth and the knowledge you will attain through this challenge you are about to conquer. You can do it! You are a very intelligent, ambitious, and talented individual who can accomplish anything you put your mind to. I know it's going to be tough... we may not make it to the gym every morning at 5 lol... but it will be worth it!

Where should you go? I think after you graduate you should go to Scranton, PA and visit Dunder Mifflin! J/k! Because the farthest east I've been is Texas, I'm probably not the best person to give you recommendations regarding places to visit.

Anyways, this is a long comment, I know. But just know that I really admire you! I appreciate our outings to the gym, regardless of how tired I am. THANK YOU!!!!!
