Got approval from management today for a year’s sabbatical. Unpaid, mind you. So I now have the time. Need to work on the money and the how I will support myself for a year pieces of this puzzle. Selling this condo will help I think. 6 months ago

I’ve changed my Major from Western Literature to English language.
This autumn semester, I’m taking classes in Phonology and Grammar, plus Examen Philosophicum (the obligatory class in philosophy and ethics). 13 months ago
I feel polished and knowledgeable beyond work experience. I find my confidence at work is more obvious, and I am more outgoing. I definitely learned more about professionalism, leadership, and my writing is improved.
I really recommend for anyone who wants to earn their bachelor’s degree to look into community colleges, first. It really makes the goal come closer because community colleges really are a smaller community and if you bug enough people, they open up so many resources. It is cheaper, too.
Many universities now require freshmen students live on campus and buy a meal plan. That easily adds another $10,000 – $15,000 (a whole low-end KIA) to the cost of college, beyond the $9,000 – $16,000 per year it costs with tuition and fees! Community colleges are less cost prohibitive and give fabulous support to those who are returning students, changing careers, or just feel less confident about the university life. They also offer many alternative choices for classes: in-person, online, televised lectures, and beyond.
For students in high school, many community colleges offer a cross-platform where high school students can earn credits at both institutions at the same time!
I really believe attending a community college and taking advantage of the many resources they have to offer really helped me achieve my goal. 17 months ago
