Mood: overwhelmed

Music: The Beauty of the Rain, Dar Williams


Sigh.  Deep Breath.  What the heck am I getting myself into?  I have 2 more classes to finish my Master’s Degree.  (and my thesis, but that’s another story).  UM – A2 is expensive.  As in $900 per credit hour.  I have 8 credit hours of coursework, and 3 credits of thesis work left to do.  You do the math. 

I might be able to transfer some classes from UM-Dearborn, at a MUCH cheaper rate…like MUCH MUCH cheaper…and I’ll be done with all my coursework, and be able to concentrate on my thesis.  I won’t have this pending umbrella of disappointment over my head.  I won’t be constantly nagging myself about my failure at Grad School.  So, I might be signing up for 2 classes this Fall.  They are both night classes.  One in Monday night, the other is Thursday night.  Both are from 6-9, in Dearborn.  It’s only 15 weeks.  15 weeks until I can breathe a sigh of relief that I’m yet a step closer to completion and success.  One is Geochemistry, and the other is GIS.  (Ironically, I could probably TEACH the darn GIS class, but it’s a stupid requirement, so I don’t really have a choice). 

This will turn our lives upside down for 15 weeks.  My life is busy already.  I’m scared.  But I NEED to do this.  I hope my family and friends understand if I disappear for a while.  I hope that I can handle being a mom, a wife, an employee, a friend, and a student.  Sigh. 

Give me strength.
