Back to School

Went to ASU this afternoon to register for a summer class. Intermediate Financial Accounting. I decided to go back to school for an Accounting Master's. I'll be taking Accounting upper division pre-requisite courses for the next year, one at a time, and hopefully apply and enter the Master's program in Fall 2008. I'll be taking a leave of absence for that 10 months.

My blogging and crafting will have to go on hiatus while I'm in school (I think semi-hiatus has already started - summer classes start May 29th).

I'm excited to get my Master's, but not necessarily excited about the schoolwork. I'll be able to sit for my CPA when I'm done with the Master's, which will be so good, especially given the field I work in. It's a pretty sizable financial investment though . . . just the one summer class (3 credits) will be about $1,000 with textbooks figured in. Bummer. And I have three more of them to take. And then comes the full time student gig.

I'm hoping to get a TA position for not only the financial help it will be, but also because while I was in high school and undergrad, being a TA wasn't as high on my list of things to do as taking elective courses that I was interested in or doing a minor (history and science, anyone?).
