This week classes start again, and I am once again enrolled. Four semesters down, one Masters class at a time. Only another ten to go. I don't talk about the fact that I am working on my Masters very often here on the blog (or anywhere else for that matter). I tell myself it isn't really worth talking about or getting excited about. I am proud of my 4.0 Masters GPA, but it is only one class, nothing to brag about.
But then I think about it. And you know, I think it's okay to be proud of myself. It isn't like the ONLY thing I am doing is taking one class a semester. I work full time, I am a mother and a wife, a sister and a daughter. I write this blog, and write several other places as well. I read books and do reviews, I spend time with my girl friends and family. And in the middle of that, I have managed to continue taking classes and to do extremely well at them. To maintain a 4.0 in a very challenging masters program.
So, I think it's okay to say it. You guys, I am really REALLY proud of myself. I am bettering myself and the future of my family. I am working hard and am learning so much. This is worth my time and energy, and I am proud of the fact that I am doing it and doing it well.
So here is to another semester. This time I am taking Women's Health Behavior. It will be extremely interesting and will get me three credit hours closer to my final goal of a Masters in Public Health. Here's to a 4.0, one class at a time.
