Officially A College Student Again...Sort of....

I am officially a college student again! I can't decide what is better - being a FT college student and actually having to study or working all day, being a night student and not having to study. (there is no outside coursework for this) Jury is still out on that, I will keep everyone posted.

I am taking a Management Certificate class at OSU. It is part of the Fisher College of Business Executive Education program. Essentially, it is a lecture series of topics you would take in a FT MBA program. It started last night, goes M & W from 6-8:30 and ends on May 14th. Last nights topic was a discussion of strategy. The professor was very funny and very engaging, and I learned a lot. The new college of business is beautiful - amazing facilities, state of the art technology and they even had snacks for us.

Mondays and Wednesdays are going to be brutally long days, but I can do anything for 6 weeks. Grammie and the Grand Paw have agreed to help out with Chelsie, which is a huge help. On Monday, they will run errands and have dinner in Dublin and then spend a little time with her at the house. On Wednesdays, she will have a play date in Marysville with her chocolate lab cousin and then the Grand Paw will bring her home after dinner. I have no problem admitting my parents take very good care, I mean spoil me rotten. :)

Maybe this will inspire me to get an MBA? Don't hold your breath. :)

I think I could handle going out all night, taking classes during the day...rinse wash repeat- but not sure I could handle a full time job, then classes on top of it!
