Today I officially finished my first semester of my masters program. It feels great! Now I have just over two weeks of “break” before round two starts.
I go back and forth on what I want to do; continue or not. The truth is that this last semester has been really hard because of everything else that is going on in my life. This next semester doesn’t really promise to be much better, and I wonder if a longer break is in order. I can take up to three months without penalty, but it means a long and complicated reapplication to my work’s tuition reimbursement program that I would like to avoid.
I think I bite the bullet and plunge forward. As long as I am careful and aware of things, I should be fine.
My other big concern is a recognition that my change of career is outside of this degree. It is still a good degree and a direction I could see myself pursuing in the future, but it is not really relevant right now. Ah, decisions….
