Continuing Education (2)

I got my Master's in Business Management.

It's helped my career, but it took several years of hard studying.

If I didn't have a supportive family and a husband with a good job, I don't think I could have done it.

So you're counseling me against this idea?

Not necessarily, but I do recommend taking a slow approach.

Can you take some night classes or find some way to keep working while you go back to school?

Might be difficult.

Maybe you could get an MBA or something more marketable.

That's worth considering.

I got my BA from Brown University.

My major was Environmental Studies but that hasn't been as useful as the business courses I took.

Or maybe I should just take some courses that I'm interested in, but skip the Master's.

That's another idea, but if you really have a dream, don't let anything stop you from going for it!

Going back to school is hard, but it's not impossible.

You're right! I need to decide if this is truly what I want.

And take your time. You're still young.

Maybe there's even a correspondence course you can take during your free time.

Yeah! Then I could slowly build up credits and maybe later transfer into a university program.

There you go! That's some clear thinking.

I guess I just love learning!

I remember the day my SAT scores came back... I was so excited!

I don't remember loving school quite so much...

Most of the time I was either bored or totally stressed out.

But like I said earlier, if you have a dream, don't let anything hold you back!
