I am currently working on one of my Bucket List items ~ getting my Bachelor of Education degree through the University of Alberta. I am in my fourth week & the crunch is starting. Assignments & mid-terms starting next week. We are doing 16 week courses in 8 weeks. You can only imagine the crunch. Do I have a life, well a little but I think some of my extended family are having a harder time getting used to my "unavailability". My spouse & son are fine with it, they support me & don't demand anything of me. So glad they can take care of themselves, hee hee.
I'm in the 3rd year of the four year program and this is a specialized professional degree. Wish me "good studying" not luck because it has nothing to do with it ~ it's a lot of discipline, focus, & determination ~ "keeping you eye on the prize" so to speak.
We are asked to journal our experiences in this program, I'm still trying to decide if I am going to use my blog as one method. Not sure yet, we'll see.
I hope you are living your dream and not just dreaming it.
