Back to School - Part ??

This is just another message in the continuing saga of me trying to finish something I started way back in 1991. I can't believe it has been that long since I first started attending IUSB. I'm slow but somewhat persistent. So after another year long hiatus from school I decided it was time to get back up on the horse and try to complete yet another class in my attempt to someday get a Bachelors degree. I am currently taking a Data Management class - talking about designing and using databases. So far I have been pretty well informed about most things we have talked about although ER diagramming is something new to me. Hopefully all will go well this semester and I will be able to check off one more class.

On another note I finally filled out the paper work yesterday to apply for my Associates Degree in Business. I completed the last required class in December of 2006 but I never filled out the actual request for the degree. This way I will have two Associate Degrees, that should be equal to one four year degree, right? Ok I guess not but it is a small milestone on my road to educational greatness - one which I had somehow hoped I could get to before my Sister but that obviously is not going to happen with her graduating this Spring in record like time (5 years). Way to go Tia, I'm impressed!

I'm proud of you for keeping up the scholastic effort. Maybe you'll eventually get an MBA! I'm sure if your schooling was paid for too you would have been done a long time ago. Keep up the good work. And when you're done it's my turn, so hurry up and finish! Love you.

MBA, ha I'd be retirement age by the time I would get that and then what good would that be?
