On January 5, 2015, I decided to enroll in an online grad school course. I figured I could handle it since it would only take 14 months and would not interfere with my travel plans. You see, I completed my Bachelors of Science degree in 2011 at the age of 51. I’m very ambitious. There are three things I’ve acquired a fear for in life…rodents, math, and dying to awaken in an eternal Hell.
Little did I know that those beautifully worded classes meant I would have five back to back advance math classes. A younger me would have took the challenge head on, but this much older, great grandma me…she had to take Stat twice! The first time I took Stat, it was a student lead class(keep in mind, I am the student), during the summer. So that you will know, the summer is when all the smart math people leave the college to enjoy their lives. There was not one person who could make me lose the anxiety and panic attacks that seem to be my daily emotion. I spent over $500 trying to find an online tutor and still could not pull it off. Can you say, “EPIC FAIL.”
Failing that, yes a “D” is a fail, meant I will now graduate two semesters behind my original graduation goal date. Double UGH!! My 14-month course will now go into 24 months provided nothing else happens. With my prayer cloth, wishbone, and Holy water, I am set to graduate in 2017 provided all math classes are now behind me. I am currently in a Marketing class this summer. You know what, I’ve been in business for the past three years. Now, I can name what I’ve been doing to get people to “Know, Like and Trust” my business. Who knew?? I sure didn’t. This summer will definitely replace the horrid summer of 2015. Wish me luck!
