I feel so lucky to be in an environment where I’m constantly surrounded by people smarter than I am, but at the same time, I’m having a hard time with this goal. I had originally thought I would get a PhD, but after a semester in, I’ve really lost my desire to stay in school for years. Part of that’s just practicality, I got engaged right before I left for school and we’re getting married this Christmas. I’m anxious to be done with long-distance and make a home. I taught high school for a year and I’m starting to think I may just need to go back to that, maybe teach at a community college on the side, too. I feel like I never have anything to say in my classes, I feel unprepared most of the time, and I feel like I have no focus. I am meeting with a counselor to talk about working on being more disciplined, but when it comes to time management, I can just waste so much time, and then writing is difficult. :/ I am hoping to work with a really amazing professor here for my thesis, but I need to focus on surviving the rest of the semester. 1 month ago

Study, study, study!!! A lot of time, $$, and hard work but I now have my Masters of Science in Nursing degree. Yippeee!!! 5 months ago
Long story short, it looks like I’ll be doing a Masters Degree in History. It really is the subject I like best, and has really broad applications.
The plan is to start taking language classes Summer 2013, because I need a foreign language for any of the programs I am looking at. I will then begin the actual coursework for the Masters around Fall 2014. 5 months ago
I contacted the school I will be attend to make sure everything is still in the system for October 2013 and it appears so.
I’ve been toying with the idea of getting specific training so I am ready to enter the works of consulting. Also I intend on taking Economics and likely speaking courses. 9 months ago
Well, I have 8 classes left, and I have to do it super slooooooowwww, but I’ll get there! Starting again in the fall 10 months ago
Thrilled to find out I got accepted into Baylor with funding! I received a tiny stipend for a research assistantship and tuition is covered. I am excited, but also feel a lot of fear-how I’ll manage financially, how my boyfriend and I will manage after doing a year of long-distance overseas (we’ll only be 3 hours apart so it’s really nothing, but it’s difficult to remain patient), and also just insecurity-will I be able to be a better student, focused, articulate, turn papers in on time, etc. Ahhh! 13 months ago
I got accepted into a great program, but with no funding. I’m not sure if I should take out loans or try reapplying next year. :/ 13 months ago
