Holy Thought Process, Batman!
Friday, March 18, 2011
So, hubby and I were talking about my school schedule and our future plans. I'm currently only working 2 days a week and don't have much hope for extra hours in the future. If I take French over the summer at 3 hours a day/ 4 days a week, I could finish the language requirement and focus entirely on my major (plus the other two gen-eds I've been avoiding....) But then I will be in school all summer and have to leave the house by 8:00 four mornings a week (plus there is a week when I will be working 8 nights in a row, then I'd have to go to class four of those days... It's possible, but I'll be drinking a huge-az-cuppa-coffee and an insane amount of Diet Coke (Which, I've been pretty good about not drinking near as much, except at work......)
I need a total of 44 credits to graduate. If I do this, I'll knock 8 out and be able to do 4 classes a semester for fall/spring/fall and be DONE DONE DONE December 2012.... If I don't do this, I can plan on being DONE DONE DONE May 2013... I'm so torn, because I really really want to be done with school and Hubby said, "Getting done sooner will help your argument for having a baby sooner." Yeah, he said that. We've been going back and forth about kids for the last two years, and it makes sense to wait one more year, and then start trying... If I only have one more semester, I can even go to school while pregnant *knock on wood* and still be done before Junior comes along. Otherwise, I'd probably wait until after I'm done or close to being done with school.
I don't know, it's causing high stress and panic. On one hand, it's an extra 2k for a summer of stress but on the other hand, it will get me out of the house more regularly and get me so much closer to graduation and a small addition to our family... Plus, once I have a degree, I'll be more wanted by people... right? Please tell me I'm right, because this has been an obnoxious ride...
I can register starting tomorrow and I may sign up and if I get too stressed out, I can always withdraw without penalty. But holy hannah, I need advice. HELP!
