Back To School
When I started college in 2006 I never thought I'd leave without a degree.
And I didn't.
Just not the degree I wanted.
I graduated in 2009 with my General Associates Degree. I only had 2 more semesters (going full time) until I would've graduated with my BS in Communications, but because of our precious little Preslie Pie surprise (does that sound like a diner menu item?), I knew I wouldn't be able to finish on time with Cody like we had planned. So I was happy (ok, not really. I actually was pretty bummed..) to finish with my associates. I was truly happy to at least finish with something.
After I graduated, I told myself I'd get my Bachelors by the time I was 25.
That's (eeeeeek) 6 months from now. Ok, really 6 months and 3 weeks. So almost 7 months. Which doesn't really make me feel that much better. (Mostly because I'm afraid of getting older. Not so much because I haven't started at ALL to work on my degree goal.)
But yeah, I haven't started yet.
Today I called the nice girl at BYU-I and asked if I could still get my degree in communications from them online. I knew I'd have to do it online since I don't live in Rexburg anymore, but I was worried they wouldn't offer the classes I need to finish, since most of the online classes offered are more general. I didn't want to have to transfer to a non-church school since I've taken so many religion classes and...I just love BYU-I. Honestly, I don't even want to get my degree from BYU. I love BYU-I!!!
She told me I absolutely could get my degree in communications online and I'm SO excited! I really didn't want another general studies degree when I've studied so hard in one area that I love. I want people to know I love it! I feel like when I say I have a general associates degree it's like saying I don't know what I like and I have no interests and I'm totally vanilla.
I'm totally not vanilla.
I haven't x'd off the BYU-I web page that has all the classes listed because it makes me so excited looking at it. I'm sure when I'm actually in the thick of things, I won't be so excited...But right now, I love it! If you really know me, you know I LOVE all things school supplies and paper and pencils and new and smelling like school and it's just so wonderful and exciting and I can't wait to get started.
I would say I'll for sure get my degree by the time I'm 30, but I'm not ever turning 30, so that would be a lame goal.
