A degree, finally?

this weak I finishedd my Bachealor’s in English frum michigan state university!!!!!!!!

(Ahem.)

While I was a full-time student from 1994 to 1999, I did not complete my degree requirements at that time. I was offered a full-time job in the Web field in mid-1999, and I took it. Although I was close to finishing, that essentially ended my quest for a degree, until late in 2007.

I enrolled for a class this past semester (REL350–Buddhism in South East Asia), and handed in my final exam a couple days ago. So, that wraps it up. I expect to receive the diploma soon. I may even frame it.

Now, most importantly, I can check the box that says “undergraduate degree completed” instead of “high school or equivalent completed.”

I’m a student again, and tardy already!

After a nine-year break, I’ve enrolled again at Michigan State University!

Back in 1998 or 99 I took a full-time job offer producing websites, and never finished my degree in English. So, finally, I’ll finish it off this semester. If everything goes as planned, I should graduate this May.

I’m taking one class: REL 350–Buddhism in South Asia. It’s once a week and meets for about three hours, which works out great because it interferes minimally with work and my time with my daughters.

Yesterday was a big day for me–my first day of class in nearly a decade. So, here’s the funny part.

At 4:20 PM, one of my coworkers asked, “So, how did that class go?” And then I realized I had forgotten about class, and was already ten minutes late. I was so embarrassed. Off to a great start!
