One of My Favorite Days!

The last day of ANY college class! I have to admit, this class went fairly well, and I had a great professor. He even suggested I submit my Graduate Research Paper to a magazine, journal, or online publication! I was shocked, but also very happy for the great encouragement. It really is nice to be recognized for the amount of hard work one invests in that type of assignment.

So to celebrate, I dropped my HR Management class that was scheduled to begin tomorrow. It is starting to get nice here in West Michigan, and I want to read books that I pick. I also have a couple of editing jobs I just started working on, so I am very excited about that. I also plan on a lot of motorcycle rides, swimming pool time, and just plain laziness until my next class starts on June 23rd.

Yeah; June 23rd. Not the greatest time to start a college class, but it is my last required core class, and this is the last time it is offered this year, so I have to take it then or wait until 2017. I am already crossing fingers that that class will go as well as this one did.

So plan on a lot of book reviews, some featured authors, great quotes, and I will try to limit my grumbling to my parenting blog πŸ™‚

    That’s awesome! I had professor of mine do the same once… one of the best feelings as a writer. ^.^ Have fun with the free time!

    What is your major? I am going to school online at Walden University for my Ph.D. in Educational Psychology. It’s funny I am a doctoral student, but my grammar still sucks. Any ideas? What kind of paper did you write?

    • Angela March 31, 2016 / 8:37 am

      My major is in Leadership Studies. Do not trust Word or any other Office type software to catch all of the spelling mistakes and errors πŸ™‚ It was an IT class, I wrote about the Oracle E-Business Suite of systems for operating functions.

        It depends how much I want to push myself, which right now is not at all LOL. I will be done by the end of next year, working at a casual pace.

      Thanks so much! I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders LOL πŸ™‚

    I’m curious…you might have already mentioned it, but what are you going to school for?

    • Angela March 31, 2016 / 8:38 am

      I am working on my Master’s in Leadership Studies. I will be done next year, working at a leisurely pace πŸ™‚

    I’m glad you are relaxing some now…. It’s time to walk that Lake Michigan beach …. and feel the cool sand squish between your toes, and even see a few of those beautiful Michigan sunsets and sunrises as you sip on your favorite beverage…..School can wait …. but those days can’t…

    • Angela April 4, 2016 / 7:29 pm

      The snow can feel free to stop any time though, that is for sure! πŸ™‚

    Congrats, such a great feeling — not only to be done, but to know you did well.

    • Angela April 18, 2016 / 9:13 am

      Thank you so much! My next class starts June 23rd, and I know it is going to be here any minute now…..

    • Angela April 19, 2016 / 12:38 pm

      Thank you Mark!
