So tomorrow, I embark on a new chapter in my life. After graduating from Villanova University in May 2006, I have decided to take the next steps in my education and am pursuing my Masters in Food and Nutrition. I can honestly say that the blog world has fine tuned my interest in food and nutrition and has been a major factor in helping me decide what I want to do with my life.
Before I can start my masters program, I have to take a few prerequisites – many of which are in the science department. I still have a full time job, but I am taking two classes this semester, with the hopes of entering in the masters program next fall. This semester I am taking Chemistry and Biology and their respective labs.
I pretty much avoided these two subjects like the plague in high school and college. I like to think that now that I am older and wiser I will be able to approach these subjects with a more open mind. I have a better idea of the direction I want to go career wise, and for the first time I am excited about what I want to do with my life!Do you like all my new cool Vera Bradley school gear?? Do you think I am going to be the coolest 25 year old back in school there ever was?? Yes I did get the matching messenger bag, pencil case, and phone/id holder. I heart them all! I feel like this Vera pattern is very mature! Boyf keeps reminding me that some of the people I am in classes with may need me to buy them beer! Man down!
On a side note – Going back to school is also the main reason why I needed to get a new laptop. My goal is to bike to classes every day, and my old computer wouldn’t have traveled very well. Yay for going green and biking to class!
The owls in the pattern are my inspiration to be wise. I hope to be like a sponge and learn all I can! Wish me luck on my first day of school tomorrow!!
