catching up. . .

The semester has begun. Remember being in school? The "year" was not understood from January to December, but from late August to May. This world of long ago is familiar again. I have begun (for the second time!) a career as a graduate student. The commitment is "part time" as I continue to work "full time", but I find the terms blur as I juggle my responsibility at work and my desire to excel in academia. The first eight weeks of the semester I am taking two courses: Management Issues & Marketing Concepts while the second eight weeks of the semester I am taking two courses: Introduction to Finance & Business Law/Ethics. These courses are 1.5 hours each. (The credits a trifle considering the 6-8 hours preparation that has gone into each class meeting.) I must tell you more as time goes on, but this is a fair start.

How, you might ask, can I afford this? I can't! And that's where the blessing comes in. The bank that I work at is picking up my educational costs. (Read previous posts for snippets of the great respect I have for my boss. He's amazing!)

The Lord is good to ALL who call on Him.
