Am I really sure I want a masters?

Things at work are getting a bit weird. My boss is going to retire in June (unless something else happens before that). One of my co-workers is also thinking of retiring. She is out on vacation for the next 5 weeks. Can you imagine, 5 weeks vacation, all at once? I can’t.

My boss and I have been having interesting conversations about my future in the department, and where she sees me going. I never thought I would want to get into management at the university level, but it seems that may be in my future.

So, I’ve been convinced. I’m enrolling in the Spring for my masters in Instructional Technology. I’ve applied, I’ve turned in my paperwork, and I have my letters of recommendation.

I’m not really sure I’m excited to lose my personal time, but I think it is the smart thing to do. Besides, you can’t be management without it. And just think, next time I’ll get to have a thingie on my gown when I graduate. smile

  1. Good for you! I hope to have a baby and get into something I can do from home. Like being a personal assistant. Aim high!

  2. I think a master’s is always a good idea.  I don’t regret having mine… even though it was HELL getting it.  Even if it hasn’t landed me more money yet, it’s mine… and no one can take it away from me.

  3. So you’ll become management at some point? Sounds great!
    I am sure the masters will be hard work, but worth the effort.
