Well...I made it! I finally finished my Associate's degree. After three long years and a lot of struggles mixed with joys along the way, I have finished this chapter of my education. Earlier this morning I finished the last of my assignments and now I just wait for my final grades to come in. Out of five classes this term I know that four of them I am getting an A in. I had hoped to ace all five of my classes this term but Japanese Art just wasn't going to allow it.
That one class caused me more stress than I had ever anticipated. Turns out my instructor based 65% of our grade on two huge exams. So it didn't matter that I aced all my quizzes, homework, and final research paper. The weight was on the exams and my first one let's just say didn't go so well. I felt defeated this past month thinking this one class was going to ruin my chances of graduation. With the motivation of my husband I picked myself up and determined to study non stop for my last exam so I could give it everything I had in me. And I did! While I don't know my grade yet for the exam, I know I rocked it and I couldn't be more happier!
So now I sit here writing this feeling a personal sense of accomplishment. Sure I went back to school to benefit my family, but I mainly started this journey back to school for myself. I wanted to prove to myself that I could go back to school and be successful. To any mom out there considering going back to school, if I can do it...so can you! So as this chapter of my education closes, another begins. I start this fall on my BS in Psychology. So it's onward and upward...and thankfully back to blogging again during this summer break!
