Yep… I’ve decided to take the plunge and work on a degree!
I know… everyone is sitting there wondering just where will I get the time to go off to school?
Well – worry not… I’ll be an online student! I do not even have to leave my house much less get out of my jammies.
The most exciting part is that I’ve been personally invited to enroll by the Professor who is in charge of this particular program.
Although I was quite excited that she thought I was worthy… I’m really not as smart or talented as she may think. I’m just really good at bluffing my way through – but shhhh don’t tell OK?!
Now I have so many decisions to make… what degree do I work on? An MD or PHD? And what field of study? I’ve dabbled in a variety of things over time… I hate to brag but I’ve done some work in History, Finance and Fashion (to name a few) so I could finish up those. But there is also the lure of Agriculture and the Culinary Arts.
OK - so you want details? I’ll be attending the University of Southampton… cool huh?
No - not The University of Southampton in the UK… I’ll be attending the Quilt College at The University of Southampton (aka Southampton Quilts).
Their PHD (Projects Half Done) and the MD (Mostly Done) programs are quite appealing… I really could work towards both degrees with little more effort than unpacking a box and pulling out a few projects!
I have to ‘declare my major’ and submit my project list to ‘Professor Beth’ by September 15th as school starts in October! Although I’ll be an online student… I hope to make it up to the campus to attend a class from time to time.
I know many of my fellow students and am quite honored to be working along with them towards our degrees. (Hi Ladies!)
I’ll keep you posted as I go along… but for now - I need to go poke around in some boxes.
