On December 15th 2012 I obtained my master of science in systems engineering. So excited, and glad that it is all over. It took two full years…I made one mediocre grade that I’m not particularly proud of the rest were As, but considering all that went on in my life in the past year…i can’t be too mad. 2 months ago
Hello, everyone! I realize that I didn’t write anything about my progress last semester! :GASP:
Just know this: I have now made it to my LAST semester of graduate school! I received a 4.0 in the fall semester with two required courses. I am currently taking three courses this spring semester. One of my spring semester courses actually was a winter course, but my professor has graciously extended it into the first few weeks of this semester for my classmates and I.
This semester, I am completing the following: a practicum course, the second half of my research seminar paper, completing a training design and facilitation fieldwork course, and successfully passing the comprehensive exam for my program.
Yeah, so hopefully the next time you see me on here, I will have successfully completed ALL of these requirements by May 17th, 2013!
Thank you again to all who have cheered, commented, and messaged me with support. I really appreciate it! Until next time, take care! :D 3 months ago
Work and social life is the main focus at this time. Perhaps 5-10 year plan. 9 months ago
If all goes well, I’ll graduate in December. I took a Human Factors in Quality Assurance class this summer and it has been my favorite class. The main focus of the course was to examine human interactions with technology. It has made me look at the world around me differently, I have to look at how things are designed and how systems operate now.
So I have one course with an incomplete status that I need to get out of the way, and the 2 classes for Fall semester and that’s it! It went by so quickly. 9 months ago
This wasn’t really a goal for my immediate future, but now that my children are all going to be in school, I am thinking about returning to my career. I started looking into a graduate program for a reading certificate, although it isn’t a MA, it would be a good start. I still need to research the program more, decide it it is what I want to do, and apply. 10 months ago
As of this past week, my first year of graduate school is complete with a cumulative 4.0 GPA! As I have mentioned before, I have five courses now remaining. These courses include two research paper/thesis seminar courses, two training/development fieldwork courses, and an internship/practicum course. On top of all of that, I have to take a comprehensive examination based on the six core courses from my academic program.
I am thankful that I have had the opportunity to continue with schooling this year on a full-time basis. Plus, I know for a fact that my academic program has been helpful in me getting my summer job in human resources. My spring semester at school ended, and I immediately began a new job a few days later!
I look forward to the upcoming academic year and the rest of the summer at my current job. This has been an awesome year so far!
Thank you to all of you who have read my entries, sent good thoughts, comments, and messages my way throughout this journey! It is greatly appreciated! :D 12 months ago
In May 2011, I graduated with my MS degree in Human Development & Family Studies with a concentration in College Student Personnel.
It may not be my last master’s degree (who knows what the future holds!), but I am so thrilled to have completed this! 12 months ago
