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!!
Have a great day! Love the Vera.
Good luck with school! Bio and chemistry, sounds like a fun semester. You are going to do great.
That is awesome!! And now I'll know who to go to for nutrition advice in the future. 🙂
And believe me, I know the feeling of going back to school. I decided to get my Master's at the age of 27. I'm 29 now and will be done this semester and while I'm not always the OLDEST person in class, I'm definitely in the upper realm of being the oldest.
Good luck with your first day at school! I would love to go back and get my masters in the same thing…but it's really not feasible with hubby going back to school to study HVAC!
Have fun at school! 😀
p.s. our smoothies always go in beer glasses! 🙂
I am looking to go back to school for Nutrition too. I live in Philly and was wondering what school you go to?
Really like the blog!
Hav seen so many candidates bonistag ‘I will change the system for better’ and finally seen amassing wealth and absuing power within a decade of service, by building an unholy nexus with politicians for getting lucrative tenures etc.I m not saying Ms Divya Dharahini (What a name for a Tamilian !) will do all that; but only point out that such words carry no conviction in today India as v r surrounded by corruption – ridden bureaucracy both at centre and state. A few may b there and v hav seen. But that s negligible, that cd not even make a ripple effect.If u dont believe me, look at today TN. The officers in service while Muka was in power, now are shunted out and posted in sinecures (w/o any use- only salary). And the officers loyal to Je hav been posted. If after 5 yrs, non-Aiadmk comes to power, the current batch of officers will b shunted out.Dont justify the new govt needs new officers. The fact is that there are groups w/in bureaucracy. U join a a group and wait for ur sun shine to make hay.What s this all show it to u?
