QotD 7.21

(VERY LATE I KNOW Sad I'M SORRY Sad )

Did you go to college? Are you? What did/are you studying? If you didn't, why not? What have you done instead?

I am currently in college studying a BAS I think for Business- Hospitality Management. I don't know if I plan on using it for anything but I know that having any degree with help get a job if that needs to be the case. I am hoping to just be a stay at home mom or my DH and I want to have our own business.

I finished my undergraduate degree in 2008 - I have my BS in Physics. I am currently working on my master's for Systems Engineering and plan to finish the week of my due date.

I only really started my master's since we were trying to get pregnant and I hoped this would keep my mind off getting pregnant (which everyone said what was keeping me from getting pregnant, I was freaking out!). Plus I figured school, full time job, life with two little kids was going to be tough! So glad this all finishes with my degree and my baby Smile

I'm working on the last 4 classes of my undergrad Bachelor degree in Business Management. I am hoping like crazy that I can figure out how to study properly and pass these 4 because I have been working on this (while working full time and with no actual classes to go to) since 2006. And if I don't pass them this year then I will pretty much have to start over because this specific degree code is no longer offered Sad

I am meeting with a tutor today to help me with studying techniques. Should've done this years ago!

I started off getting my associates in Science.....then I got my Bachleors in Family and Social Services.... I also went to school for Wildlife Ecology and i got a 30hr certificate in Early Childhood Development...... yah.... needless to say, when the wildlife ecology wasn't working out so well (i'd have to move west and get a masters) i didn't know what i should do.... I still think about going back to getting my Masters - not sure what i'd get it in though....i don't want to be a cousnelor, but a social worker in a school might be worth going back to school. Who knows....

I got my Associates back in 2010. I started as a mom of 2 got pregnant with my youngest daughter while going and had her during the summer break and went back graduating with a 6 month old along with my other 2 kids. Was hard but well worth it. I am not using my degree but what I do is close I guess.
