My crazy fast week!

Oh my gosh I haven't posted in FIVE days!

::very sad face::

This week went by very fast, or actually I should say last week went by very fast. It is Sunday after all.

I wish I could say I have been up to some fun stuff, but I haven't. Just working. Working, working, working!

Although, on Thursday I did have a meeting at a school that I am really interested in and I think I may have found what I am looking for!

Since I already have a bachelors degree, I didn't see the point in going back to school for another bachelors degree but what I want to do now has nothing to do with what I did my undergraduate work in. Luckily, this school has a program for people just like me.

This program results in a Masters of Science in Education and will give me licensure as an elementary school teacher. The other schools I was considering did not have this option for elementary education and unfortunately that isn't an option for me. I specifically want elementary.

It will take three years because I am working full time while going to school, but I am so excited! I feel like this is what I am supposed to be doing and what I can be happy doing for the rest of my life. Scary stuff! The rest of my life? When I say that I feel so old.

Hopefully I get in though! I still have to get two letters of recommendation and take two tests. Luckily, I do not have to take the GRE or the GMAT. I have to take an essay test that is unique to this school and the Praxis I. I hate tests, so they are making me a little nervous but all I can do is prepare!

So... that is pretty much the excitement in my life right now. I haven't told my current boss, but I am going to wait until it's a done deal to do that. I'm going to get moving right away on the letters and tests because I want to start classes this summer. I know, I'm crazy huh?!

What has been going on with all of you?! I'm trying to get through my Reader, so look for my comments soon! :)
