Back To School I Go

Recently I made the decision to go back to school. I already have a B.A. but I wanted to get something else under my belt. When I first when to college, I attended a small business college ad got my A.A.S. After that I returned but online and I got my B.A.S. in paralegal studies. Now, there is no requirement in VA to be one but hey it does help in an interview to have it and the training was great. 

I am going to just take a course to get a certificate in business but honestly, in the world, that will help anyone. It is a pretty long course but will turn out to be pretty good on my resume. It is through University Alliance and I am taking the course with the University of Florida. 

I start classes March 1. My favorite part of being able to take classes, work full time and run my own clothing boutique is that I can take classes online. I have done this before and I find it easy. I got my A.A.S. at a business school and then got my B.A. online. I find for me that online classes are easier for me. I pay more attention, I get my work done on time and I am not goofing off in class. 

I am ready for classes to start and if I could, I would log in already and start my work. I know I can stay on track but I just have to balance work, school and the store. I love my job, but it would be amazing to get into another field. My current degree is so specific to one field that this certificate is very much needed. 

When I first decided to go back to school, I was struggling to figure out if I knew what I wanted to do and get out of life. I do know what I want and where I want to go. I just have to get there and this is part of it. It takes baby steps to get there. I want to continue my education farther than this and it is going to take some time and lots of money but I will get there.
