Last week I made the decision to go back to college for the 2012-2013 school year and complete my degree in Technical Communication.
I am really excited about it, although I know there will be some challenges. I need to take two science courses and then all I have left are core classes directly related to the degree. I'll be going part-time, though, because I work full-time, and it will take a bit longer for me.
In the past thinking about finishing school, with all of the classes as well as work and housework, was a bit overwhelming for me. But now I feel much more settled and I know having a bachelor's degree will help me move up in my field. Maybe eventually I can even go on for my master's degree in Library Science.
The university I will be attending made this degree entirely online along with a few others. I'm a little relieved I won't have to deal with large echoey lecture halls, trying to navigate around campus, or having to talk to a bunch of new people in each class. (My brain gets enough of a workout trying to listen to patrons while I'm at work.)
My blogging here may become more sparse in the fall but I'm thinking these classes will give me more to write about. It's not a new experience for me because I'm almost done with the degree, but I will be learning new and (hopefully) interesting things in my classes.
Looking forward to it!
