THIS IS JUST IN THE CONSIDERING PHASES....

I am considering changing schools....just considering....but since I wear my heart on my sleeve and that's kinda sorta the purpose of this blog o'mine, which is to throw stuff out there and see what it stirs up, if anything, I'm considering transferring to another school, going from my current Master of Science to a Master of Arts (it's just funner, more relevant, less stressful, more engaging) and there's no "residency requirements" during the Master's portion of the school. Also, it has an accelerated program so I could complete it sooner....it's accredited by the North Central accrediting body, which governs Ohio State, Notre Dame, etc, so it has a proven track record for being fairly stringent when it comes to curriculum, etc.

If I still wanted to pursue the PhD, I could transfer back to my current school OR continue with that school....but if I change my major to "international cultural psychology" I would have to have a current passport because my residency would be overseas in 2 separate 9-day episodes and I would be working with immigrants (which reads like a nightmare to me, so maybe it's not my cup o'herb tea). The reason it reads like a nightmare to me is that I get attached and then I leave and then I have dreams that disturb me forever. On the other hand, what better way to prepare for a mission, right? Eh.......just something to throw out there.......

I say whatever is easier. Yep. That is seriously what I think. Cop out? Maybe. But, you're 53. . .I say ride the wave, mom. . . ride it until it face plants you on the shore. Ride, baby, ride. . .
