It has been a little over a week since I last wrote and big changes are in the works, I am going back to school. Why? I guess I want to show my kids getting an education is important and having that degree is important to me. Another minor thing is I accidentally submitted my FAFSA Form instead of saving it, so I am committed now. I think maybe the error was my sub-conscience remembering a promise I made to my grandfather that I would finish my degree that time is now. I know he is laughing at me because he always told me I should be a Business Major because I have a great business mind (as he would say). Yes I am going back to get my Business Degree. Why Business? I decided I need to be practical and practical for me is business, I need a degree with the least amount of time to finish and a “universal” degree. Business Law may kill me but I will get my Business Degree. As much as I would love to get my Graphic Design or Illustration Degree it isn’t practical for me, I live in an Art College town the market is over saturated with Graphic Designers and Illustrators.
I also miss doing Revenue Management, I loved my job when I got to do my job and not five other people’s job. I am not a math person, never have been but there is something about Revenue that makes me so happy, the numbers don’t lie and I think that is why I like it so much. There is only one way to do something and I love the fact people can’t weasel their way out of “the numbers” because the numbers can’t lie. They can be figured wrong but the numbers if figured correctly numbers don’t lie.
I hope to have everything submitted this week and then the waiting begins, to see if I get accepted, what was transferred and what I have left. I am hoping that the target graduation date is still December 2014 but it may change. I am excited, nervous and every other emotion associated with that but I know in the end everything will work out. I know this is the right thing to do as well as going back to work, will it be easy? No probably not but will it put us in a better place? Yes I think so and it feels right which is what I have been waiting for.
