As I may have mentioned before, Daddy Shawn has been working towards his Bachelor’s Degree, enrolled part-time to Aspen University’s online program. He’s getting pretty close to achieving his goal of a degree, and I’m super-proud of him and all his hard work. However, sitting on the sidelines, watching him do such a good job, has been a little depressing for me. And I think that’s only because I’m a lover of learning, and always enjoyed continuing my education — in most any way possible.
So, what else was there to do but to enroll, myself!?! At the turn of the new year, I enrolled at Ashworth College. I chose this online college because I really liked its at-your-own-pace courses and economical price per credit (both very important for a busy Momma, you know!) …
I’ve been taking those ever-so-important-but-maybe-a-little-boring prerequisite classes to start, while my old transcripts were mailed and processed. I managed to complete the intro courses Achieving Academic Success and Introduction to Computers (which both, by the way, were not required classes when I was in college…)And finally, after a month of waiting, my transcripts were processed, and *BOOM* just like that, I went from 5% to a whopping 44% of my Program complete and well on my way to that Bachelor’s Degree, already!
And what Program is that, you ask? Well I have my Associates Degree in General Studies, and since I enjoy learning about so many different things, I decided to to keep the General Studies major. Doing this will allow me to pursue studies in several areas, while still working towards a degree.
So right now, I am taking two courses: Social Impact of Technology and Business Analysis. Both are prerequisites I have to take, however, I have found the Social Impact of Technology to be very interesting and intriguing.
Keep the love of learning alive, my friends!
