Oooo, you must be saying. What did you study? You must have a PhD by now.
In reality, I have five, that's right, five associate's degrees. Whoopee, right.
- Business Administration - took this because when I finally got out of the Navy, I could a get a job anywhere with this magic degree. Then decided it was lame and stopped at the AS.
- Accounting - once again, who doesn't need an accountant. I'm good with numbers, I like order. Nah. Not so much. Besides, some of our taxes are unconstitutional and piss me off.
- Nutrition (certification) - and then I spent 180 hours in the hospital interning and realized the FDA is full of shit and gastric bypass patients have trouble eating a 1/4 cup of anything resulting in a return to the hospital where the staff call them "frequent flyers" behind their backs.
- Nutrition (transfer) - did this in tandem with the certification because ODU promised me I could get my master's in tandem with my undergrad in Human Services. And the only college that offered an RD only offers the courses when the professors feel like it. My short attention span doesn't work like that. See above.
- Interior Design - was a three year degree and by the time I finished I was thinking about homeschooling.
- Oh and I almost forgot to mention all the art classes that I've taken and probably qualify for a degree for that too.
Typical BN: If you are going back to school, at least get a degree that you can use, like Photography.
Typical Me: Photographers don't need degrees. They need a good eye and a camera. And I have both.
The thing is, I have no intention of going back to work. Not that I'm not employable or perfectly capable of self-sufficiency. But by the time my kids are are both gone, I'll be 52. I plan to finally sit on the sofa, eating bon bons, watching smut TV all day and greeting my husband at the door in nothing but an apron. I jest.
But it still bugs me that I never finished school. Hmmm. I'll have to keep thinking about this.
