I am building my first home. Lucky me because it is in the woods! It is an adventure I surely will not forget.

Yes, Master

Finally, after roughly two and half years I have finished my Master of Arts degree in Public Communications. Yahoo!
I started my degree while i was still an undergrad. I took two online courses at my undergrad school. I figured I should try it out before I applied since I had always heard that grad school is really hard. I took those courses in the fall of 2006. Then in Spring '07 I finished up my Bachelor of Science degree, then started the official Masters program at my new college in May of '07 before I had even had commencement for the BS degree. I went straight from Summer I to '07 fall coursework to presenting my final project Oct 2nd of '09.
Whew! Am I tired. Actually I am recovering nicely. I have been bouncing back to normal life. I went to a gem and mineral show this past Sunday. It was in a Moose lodge in a small town so it was great. Good prices (my budget was $20.00). It was run by a local club and only had a $2 admission fee.
I stopped in at school today and checked out their National Writing Day celebration. The organizers did a terrific job. It was fun and i wish I could have stayed longer. It was so great to see my professors.
