Going back to school

It's been a while since I posted a blog of relevance... probably because I've been too busy working, stressing out, house training a puppy and trying to salvage what's left of my garden. But, through all of that, I'm also trying to go back to school full time. Talk about an exhausting and intimidating process!!!!!! Who knew college would be so hard, even at 26! lol

I had my mind set on getting an Associates degree in Health Management with concentration on medical billing and coding and then I started thinking about where my current skills are. Would I be happy doing that career, just because it makes more money? So then I started thinking about pursuing an MBA with an emphasis on Human Resource Management. I already do the HR duties at work, I'm currently going through a program with a local employer group to get my HR certification... why not build on that? Luckily, most of the schools I'd been looking at have that program as well.

Now the biggest question, HOW TO PAY FOR IT!?!?!?! I hate the thought of putting myself more in debt but what else can you do? Financial aid only takes you so far. But, I'm sure it's worth it in the end. So I have the start of a plan.... classes start the first week of October! I'm going to work full time, be a full time college student and try to get pregnant? What am I thinking!?!?!?!?! Challenges, break downs, and we come!
