Since the summer of 2009 I've been slowing working on getting my MBA. (Master's in Business Administration). My undergrad major was Chemistry...so this business stuff is completely new to me. So far, I've been really enjoying it. Lately though it's been a lot more challenging as I get into the real core classes. I'm on track to graduate next summer though!...you better believe I can't wait!!
...while being married.
Really, school didn't take a hit when I got married. I did take a semester off for the wedding and honeymoon, but otherwise, it's been nice having Matt around to help me study. (He actually took business classes). I do wish I would have been done with all this before getting married. As with any outside obligation, it takes away from home life.
...while becoming a mom.
I continued on with school throughout my pregnancy. The last class was getting awkward since I couldn't fit in the desk (had to sit sideways lol). Avery was actually born the week after my last week of spring classes...and then I picked back up a late summer class 8 weeks later. I'd be lying if I said school life was easy. It's the lowest priority now because if Avery needs me... I have to put off studying to be there. Matt has been amazing with the nights they have alone together while I'm away... so it's a sacrifice all around. A typical night consists of Avery sitting on my lap chewing on my calculator while I reread chapters and take notes. Sometimes I get to class and there's a rattle or binky in my backpack...or my notes have crinkled edges from drool. That's life though. :)
In the end...it'll be worth it. Just have to keep on trucking! :)
