|Ok, so I am now officially a college girl again!!! |
Here is a little back ground. I went to Montana State University right out of high school.
I was a double major in history and physical education with the intent to teach high school level.
Well, things changed and home I came. I was immediately hired onto the City at age 20 and began working two full time jobs and kept going to Skagit for my AA degree.
This year I was given the opportunity to finish up my four year degree. The kicker it has to be in accounting.
So, I went to work on transferring credits and low and behold....they all transferred over!!!! Hurray.
Oddly enough....one of my few classes left to finish to get the 2 year degree is a history class. Weird enough since I was a history major and already took every war class you could imagine, but they request a certain one here.
So my choices were American History or Western Civilization-no brainer there...I am taking Amercian History.
I begin January 10th and I am trying the first class on-line. I am getting really excited and I am glad that I did not waste my parents 2nd mortgage after all when they made it possible for me to go to college.
When I am done I will have a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration with an emphasis on Accounting.
Life is weird and takes you in many directions that you did not plan for.
I gurantee you I did not expect to go back to college at 34, having a toddler, and after being invested in the City for 13 years.
Having said that I am grateful for the opportunity and I am thankful for George encouraging me and supporting me on this next adventure.
I pray for balance each day between family, work, church and now college.
