First off, sorry for being away for so long. RL decided to get in the way and once that does, everything just snowballs. 😐
But now that everything has settled down and I am comfortably settled into my schoolwork…I can happily get back to blogging business.
Now wait a second Samantha…you’re in school? When did this happen??
…Did I forget to mention that little tidbit?
Sorry, here’s what happened:
I had been all set to go back to school and study Web design with a certain distance education college. I was excited to apply and insanely nervous.
Then reality set it’s nasty little hammer down on my dreams. Everything came to a screeching halt when I was turned down for student funding.
Saying that I was devastated is an understatement. But I had also had enough of being kicked while I was down. I allowed myself 48hrs max to be upset and be mad…then I got back down to business.
Over the next 3 weeks, I had researched distance education institutions all over the US and here in Canada. But I was also searching within those schools for any that did affordable payment plans. If I was going to go back to school again…I was going to pay for it.
Surprisingly not many had payment plans, and even less had ones that were affordable.. I had also realized that my plan to study Web design was no longer within my budget. So I had to look into other interests that would also be able to become careers that I could do from home.
I signed my student contract in mid July to become…. a Wedding Planner.
So far things have been great and I am already thinking of ideas for what I can do after I finish my course. Truth be told, I can’t wait.
Till the next time guys!
