Busy ~ Busy ~ Busy
Oh my, I looked at my site the other day and realized that time has passed since my last post. I missed a whole month. I don’t know how that happened. It‘s not that the homework has been super challenging, just lots of reading and thinking. Today was the last day of Third Term.
We got this!
Term 3 courses were Human Relations and Social Psychology. They are more related than one would think. They are both about understanding people and why they do the things they do and how best to relate to others, very interesting stuff. I’m glad I read those last few books on my too read pile. They were very helpful with the Human Relations class.
What books were those?
Those five books made it easy for me to breeze through Human Relations. If you haven’t read them, I highly suggest that you check them out.
What is coming up for Term 4?
I am looking at Social Policy and Public Administration for this term. I suspect that both of these classes will be interesting as well.
Graduation Is May 12th!
I will be attending my first graduation since 1983 to receive my Associates of Arts for Business Administration. They even sent me an Honors sash. Woot! I read on the FPU site that I will be getting my honors cords at a ceremony on May 9th.
When I was in High School, I never made honors, so this is a pretty big deal for me. I will attribute all my hard work because of learning about discipline from NaNoWriMo. Studying and keeping up with school work does take a lot of focus and discipline. Procrastination is not a good study habit. I like slow and steady, and then I don’t have to worry about panicking to get the work done on time. Deadlines – learning to meet deadlines on time takes discipline and focus.
What else is happening?
I’m accepted into the MBA program at FPU. I was going to seek my MBA in Human Resources, but the narrow competitive field was brought to my attention so I quickly got in touch with my student advisor and she suggested an additional path of an MBA in Leadership and a Graduate certificate in HR which should prove interesting and do-able.
Last but least…
I am making a transition from the manufacturing floor to administration. Woot! I’m moving up in the world. I have my own desk, a cubicle and a pile of purchase orders to fill and file. I like it even though it is working with numbers. At least I don’t have to do much adding. The software does all the adding for me.
I almost forgot. We have a new addition to the family. Keelaa’s new best friend, a kitten named, Abby. They are best friends for life until Abby sinks her claws into Keelaa’s behind. Then they go to their separate corners for a couple of hours before doing it all over again.
