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.

About This Blog...

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!

A Great Deal, Useful Student Network, & A Free Online PDF Editor

In my search for the best deals and useful sites available I found a sweet deal direct from Microsoft just for students (requires an .edu email address). The complete MS Office 2007 Ultimate sells for $325 to $824 online; Walmart has it listed for $599.99. You can buy the student addition for about $119, but it does not include everything.

Do you have any pdf files that need to be edited? What about multiple files you would like to condense into one? With PDFHammer you can do all this with no program to download. And this is offered at absolutely no charge.

Then there is this great site I happened upon. Have you ever missed class and all the notes with it? Ever need another perspective? How would you like to earn points redeemable for rewards just for contributing your notes and blogging with other students? At you can exchange notes and ideas with other students and get information on college life or search for a job. You must have a .edu email address to register.
