A few weeks ago, I was driving back from the grocery store and suddenly felt like I should return to school as soon as possible to finish my degree. I only have 2 semesters’ worth of classes left, and I’ve had vague plans to finish sometime in the 3 years that the Romgi is in law school here. So when I got home I looked at the classes I need, when they’re offered, what the deadlines for applying are…I had exactly 3 weeks to submit my application to BYU. I got the last paperwork turned in yesterday, which means –
with any luck –
this January I’ll be back on campus. I plan to do 3 sociology classes; my cousin and I have tentatively set up a babysitting swap, so she’ll watch the Bwun for an hour every afternoon, and once a week the Romgi will take him while I’m in an evening class.
I will be completing my general education requirements through Independent Study (retake a test? Why yes, thank you, I will) and doing my final 3 sociology classes next fall. And December 2010: done! And I can walk the following April. It’s really worked out amazingly well, especially considering how last-minute the decision was. I’m nervous, since I haven’t taken classes on campus in a while, but I love the classes I have lined up (assuming I get readmitted to BYU): Crime, Justice, & Corrections; Understanding Modern Societies; and Self and Society (taught by my favorite teacher).
I should hear back by the end of October, if not sooner. But – just a few classes stand between me and a degree! Wish me luck!
