Learning something new every day!

About Me...

In June 2007 I decided to look into returning to school for my Bachelor's degree. I had been managing okay with my Associate's degree, but the idea of moving back home [South Florida] without more education under my belt was not so appealing. By the end of July I had started my first class. Two years later I am five classes away from completing that degree and my oldest child is about to start her college journey.

With this blog I hope to share some of what I have learned through my experiences as an online student and now, mom of a college student. Here you will find great scholarships, student deals, and other information to help with your voyage into higher education. Happy Studying!

Finals... finally

It is that time of year again. Those of you in school know exactly what I am talking about. Finals! Some of you may have already finished up your fall semester; congratulations to all of you. Many of you will finish the semester this week; I am among the latter. As the week winds down and the last day of class approaches take a moment to reflect on your courses taken over the past few months. Did anything particularly memorable happen this past fall? It does not matter if it was good or bad or neither. What matters is the experience and what you take from it.

I am finishing up my third statistics class of 2008. What I learned most is I have learned, or rather retained, very little from any of my statistics classes. I have opted to retake one of my tests in addition to my final for this week. And in between baking, dental appointments, and an attempt to re-engage my exercise schedule I have been studying.

Finals always seem harder given they are scheduled right before a break. Winter, spring, or summer, does not matter, we are ready to be done and get started on that all too welcoming break in classes. I get two glorious weeks free of tests and papers, free of thinking, free to spend the days with my children who are growing up way too fast.

Before the true festivities can start I must finish, thus final-ize, my class. I will be prepared. I will do well. I will pass. I will not let the holidays distract me from the task at hand. And my hope is no one else will either. Good luck on your finals and have a wonderfully happy holiday season!
