Tomorrow is my first day of graduate school.
Tomorrow I begin my coursework to get a Master’s degree in literature from the University of Memphis. I did not plan to wait until I was 35 years old to start this process, or to put it off until I had two children and twelve years of teaching experience behind me. But, as a wise man once said, life is what happens when you’re busy blah blah blah something something.
Though the Brame family is already a busy one, we’re looking forward to being even busier. And I’m looking forward to teaching my children an exciting new vocabulary that comes along with being a student–words like parsimony, impecuniousness, and penury.
See? We’re learning new things already!
If everything goes according to plan, I’ll receive my degree some time in mid-2015. Wish me luck.
