I have big plans for my future. I know that the best way to provide a better life for my family is by going to school. So, after years of trying to make up my mind, I have decided. I am going to school for Accounting. I am getting my Associates degree and plan on Graduating by the end of 2012. Its an online school, which allows me to be home with my son while my husband works. I have been out of high school for 6 1/2 years now. And have struggled with the idea of going to a traditional college - where I would actually go to classes. I found it would be easier for me, if I could do it all from home. So I did my research and decided to go with Ashworth College. They are an online high school and college, and have lots to offer. I can even go for my Bachelors in Accounting if I would like to. The monthly tuition is affordable - with this economy, I need to make sure that whatever I am doing that its affordable for us. And $52 a month works for us.
My son is 6 years old (and just lost his first tooth!), and he sees that mommy is doing homework too, and the first time that I told him, he got a really big smile like Wow! Mommy does homework too! I feel proud. I know that with this degree I can make a good living, and my plan is to eventually own my own business.
When I do open my own business, I plan on being able to go to my clients, so that way they won't always have to come to my office. I think that would really help a lot of people - businesses and individuals alike. In high school, I was good with numbers, I understood math, and usually flew through it. It just makes sense for me to do this.
After I graduate, I will either go back for my Associates in Business, or maybe my Bachelors in Accounting. My goal is to show my son that you can do anything you want to, if you work hard enough and you keep your eye on that prize.
I find that I get distracted a lot from school work. Either by the computer, my blog, or my phone and even the TV, but I am scheduling specific times that I need to be doing school. If something is on that I want to watch, I can record it on the DVR. And the internet and my blog will be there when I come back. So that is helping me a lot.
I look forward to my future. I can see it becoming a family business. My sister is also going to school for accounting.
