Remember that feeling when you leave school for the summer and you are just so happy that you no longer have homework, that you have a break, and there's absolutely no pressure on you to do anything school related? Apparently I got over that feeling. It's been almost 2 years since I received my Bachelor's Degree from BYU-Idaho, and I just finished my first week of my Graduate Program. I have dabbled with the idea of continuing my education for quite a while now, but finally I just decided to dig in and go for it. So I applied at Southern New Hampshire University for their Sports Management program, and I got accepted, and started school. The first week was kind of fun, especially when the teacher asked us in a discussion board forum about our definition of a sport, and I got to vent and bring up the fact that cheerleading isn't considered a sport. If you know me, you know I love to stir up trouble!!! Are you asking yourself why I decided in Sports Management? It just makes sense. I have always played sports, love sports, LOVE coaching, and I think that even if I don't work forever, it will help me in my hobbies. Plus I think it'll be a lot more fun to study than other subjects. It's something that I think about and am involved with on a daily basis. You may also be thinking that I'm crazy considering all that I have on my plate right now to take on one more thing...
1. I am a Mom
2. I am a wife
3. I work 40 hours a week, thank goodness it's not super demanding
4. I coached about 15-20 hours a week, this is like my hobby so it's pretty relaxing
5. I have a church calling that does actually take time
6. I have to have a clean house
7. I'm actively trying to lose weight which means I have to actually exercise for a decent amount of time
8. My husband is a full time student which means he can't be watching our little doll all the time
9. I am addicted to facebook and blogging and they are a time suck
10. My husband is leaving for the summer to live in Montana, so I have to play the single Mom life. But I am supporting him 110% and am excited for him... This also means that skype is probably going to be my new best friend.
And now I'm a full time graduate student. Not going to lie... It makes me feel really really smart when I say that. Anyway, I'm excited and I have extremely supportive parents as well as a super hott and ubberly supportive husband! In 18 months, I can add another degree to my wall! I can't wait!!!
Here a few fun pictures from our day today!!! Can I also just say really fast how the 2 minute example of Les Miserables during Conference rocked my world? Just saying.... Best Conference ever!!!
