School has officially started! Yay!
It feels odd being back in school.. but I totally missed it. I mentioned in another post that I applied to University part-time (Communications Studies Major) to slowly work towards a degree. I need this in order to get to my ultimate goal of a Master’s of Library Science. It will be a long journey. One class at a time. But I am ok with that! I love my Library Technician Diploma and the job opportunities it allows so I am in no rush to become a Librarian.
I decided to do University differently this time around. Distance Education-style! Such a different experience. I know I am back in school right now but I don’t FEEL like I am. With no classes to attend and working on my own time/at my own pace is odd.. but kind of liberating. I get to continue to work full-time while attending school which alleviates SO MUCH STRESS! Yay! Distance Education FTW.
BUT – finding motivation and avoiding distractions is so hard. I had my first study session at Starbucks yesterday. Coffee + readings is usually a good combo. However, this particular Starbucks seemed to enjoy super loud music and my concentration totally sucked because of it. I would read a sentence..then zone out. So annoying. Today I will hit up the public library instead and hope the quieter atmosphere helps me stay focused. I need to get my readings done like NOW. I do not want to fall behind.
Please send me motivation, speedy reading skills, and lots and lots of coffee!!!
How are you? Heading back to school? What are you/will you be studying?
