So, it's about time I got around to finishing up my degree. Yep, you got it, I am one of the many stereotypical gals who went to BYU to earn their University Degrees and left with an Mrs. instead of a BS. I admit it.
Also fitting with the stereo type I was pregnant when we left Provo. I really thought I would be able to finish the rest of my work independent study or through a local college--I had finished all my Major Courses (Fashion Design), I only had a few GE's to finish up. But, alas, babies are lot more demanding, consuming, cute and enjoyable than Chemistry, Biology, World History, Statistics. Not only that but once you have one baby--well, let's just say I didn't stop having them for 7 years and then it took another 6 to get them all in school full-day and well, here I am, still without that degree I promised myself 15+ years ago.
It's about time I finished up that degree. I doubt I'll ever use it for anything other than to hold it over my children's heads, prove to myself that I can finish a project and of course be able to fill in the bubbles on the school family info forms/census asking the level of education received by the adult members of the household.
I have a whopping 22 credits left. It's not much really, in fact one semester at BYU I took a 21 credit load (I nearly killed myself but I survived with a B average!). I can totally get this done in two semesters, I have to get this done in 2 semesters. If I don't graduate in April 2010 they are going to make me change programs and I'll loose some of my credits and have to take new ones or something like that, I've been out of school too long and I didn't totally understand it all--but acchhhh--I've got to get it done!
I registered today for Chemistry 100, History 201 and Rel A 212. Since they are Independent Study I technically have 1 year to complete them. Since I want to/need to graduate in April I will give myself until December 11th (ish) to complete them then I will move on to two more Religion classes over the holidays and four more classes from February -April. At least that's the plan. I'm a little (LOT) scared.
