Okay, so I'm in the midst of a crisis of faith. I want to be home with my kids so so so so so bad, especially now that the summer is over, and Lennon is starting school again, but I also know that I'm probably halfway done with the school, and I should stop complaining and just get through it already.
The hard part, for me, is convincing myself to keep going full steam ahead, knowing that it's likely I will end the program doing customer service sales.
Nope. Can't say that. I should say positive things, like, "I will end the program doing customer service sales and buying myself a Cat Poster that says 'Hang In There' in braille."
No, I'll do SOMETHING that requires a Master's degree. Just what, I don't know yet. Library Science is less likely, because the university that offers it in-state just happens to not offer it this year. And VR won't let me wait it out. So I'll just pursue that on my own.
I'm thinking about Early Childhood Education. I think I'm going to get a lot of eye-rolling and lack of support for that choice, but it's what fits my life right now, and I could use a degree like that in libraries later on. Plus, I could use that kind of degree to teach preschool in my home or something. I don't really know. I feel like I haven't thought this out. I just know I'd be interested in the curriculum, it would fulfill my obligation to VR, and it's something I could do with my kids.
I am so exactly the reason Republicans hate State programs.
