Ugh. I am horrible at making decisions. I am the most indecisive person I've ever known. And that is most likely the reason I cannot decide if I want to go back to school for my Master's.
I went to different junior colleges, and then finally an online school to finish my Bachelor's degree. It took me TEN years to finish all of that, but I did it. And it felt amazing. I was taking classes online when I was pregnant, and worked ahead in class so that I could take a week off when I was in the hospital after having Berlyn. If that isn't dedication, I don't know what is. Part of the reason why I decided to finish my degree online was because I just needed to get it done. I was just ready to put my all into getting it finished and receiving those credentials.
Now I am faced with another obstacle. I cannot decide if I should go for my Master's or not. Are any of you ladies full-time working mommies? I ask this, because if I was a stay at home mom then I would definitely make this leap. It's a little different when you have 40 less hours a week to devote to studying. The absolute only option for me to go back for my degree is to do it online. I refuse to take classes on campus and lose any more time with my family than is necessary. The particular school that I am looking at is National University. Have any of you heard of or attended this school? The courses are 4 weeks long, and there aren't any breaks in between classes except for two weeks during the holidays at the end of the year. I think I can do this, it's just that I am worried about the workload of a 4 week long course (it is a 12 month program). They allow their students to take breaks of one month (in between each class, if I want), but that would just drag it out longer, and I really just want to finish it earlier than later.
So, please, any and all advice is appreciated as I am trying to make this decision quickly (which, for me, is impossible!). As soon as I am done (or almost done) with my Master's, I would like to expand our family again and move into a bigger house.
