big news!

i have decided to go back to school. i’ve wanted to get a master’s, and i’ve decided this is the time to do it. i’m not pregnant (yet) and work will pay a certain amount per year, which will cover the number of hours i want to take. i’m really excited, yet nervous.

i’m scared i won’t get in. georgia state requires a 3.0 undergrad gpa, and while that doesn’t sound hard to get, i honestly don’t know if mine was that high. i was an english major which meant i had to take incredibly hard classes (ancient classics, arts and ideas and advanced grammar — will i ever have to use my ability to dissect sentences??), which were much harder than any journalism class. that’s why i chose to be an english major. however that, plus working 40+ hours a week at the college newspaper (more like 80 hours when i was editor) and then working full time at a real newspaper while in school affected my gpa. i hated it because i wasn’t used to getting anything lower than an “a”, but at the same time i was proud of all the experience i was getting, experience i knew would put me ahead of the game. i’m still waiting for that to happen…

i just hope that plays a part when i (hopefully!) am accepted into grad school.

    Oooo … sounds great! I’m toying with the idea of taking some classes at the Art Institute of Atlanta. If I love it, I will enroll full-time, which means I’ll be moving down your way!

    That’s awesome! Good luck! Do you think that you’ll wait to get pregnant until after you receive your degree, or do you still plan to start TTC this year?
