Even though I don't miss final exams or long, rainy walks to class, I do sometimes miss my college days. Semesters ending, semesters beginning....Being in school gives such a nice, steady rhythm to life, doesn't it? My college experience was so varied and full--challenging English courses, sorority sisters, student newspaper, campus activities. I met some of my very best friends there. College gave me so many tools for life. I had wonderful professors that took my education very seriously, and I had wonderful friends that made my life a joy. I'm proud to say that now that college is (long!) over, I've been able to use my degree in my profession. My "real" job these days is editing, and I also love to exercise my (sometimes quite rusty) writing skills on this little blog!
I was that person who knew her whole life that she'd study English. However, there's truly nothing that I don't like to learn about. Even though I've attained a bachelor's and master's degree, going back to school one day is definitely not out of the question for me. Classes I'd love to take are business administration courses. Having a business mind is important in today's corporate society and would be valuable for the future--we dream of starting our own business! Business training would also really help me understand more of what my husband talks about on a daily basis! He has also expressed interest in this area. Even though he's a salesman, he actually got his bachelor's and master's degrees in education. Who'd have thought!
I'm a huge believer in higher education. I hope that a Ph.D. is in my future, even though I may have white hair when I finally get it! A college degree isn't just about learning but self-discovery. I learned career skills and life skills and would re-enroll in a heartbeat. What was the best part of college for you?
