Well, my sister, wonderful treasure that she is, pointed this program out to me. It's perfect in that it combines something I'm passionate about (education) with something I'm interested in (anthropology). It helps also that I already have an advanced degree in education. I'm very interested in education as it relates to boys so I even have some idea of what my focus will be.
I had already determined that the next school I go to would have to be a top tier school--no more public colleges for this sista (both undergrad and grad were public). I need the resources that top tier schools can offer. I no longer have the will or the time to scrap around making opportunities. I want opportunities to already be there. Does that sound snotty? I really don't care. I know what it's like to struggle through school and then struggle after school. No network. No help. Not fun.
So, it looks like I've decided to go back to school. I have no idea where the money will come from or how it will even work out. Or when it will happen. But that's my direction now.
It's good to have direction.
