#Microblogmondays – Gamechangers

12 weeks ago, I decided to apply (on a whim, really) to my local University for my Masters. It’s a pipe dream of mine that I had just started when I met Mr. Big, but deferred for marriage and children … lol….little did I know the latter part wouldn’t be so easy. When I applied a couple weeks ago I figured, if I didn’t get in,then that would be God’s way of saying “let go of this dream” and I was OK with that. If I did get in – well I hadn’t really considered how that would affect our goal to be parents. As time went on and I didn’t receive an offer, I began to accept that I needed to let this dream go.

And then, I got in. Much to my complete surprise and utter excitement. I actually got in. I got the email just a couple days ago (email?? When I went the first time, I had to painstakingly await the mailed package…compulsively checking the mail every single day). So, in the very same month I turn the big 3-0, I will also be starting my journey in the graduate school world. How exciting!

We will still have children. But when – I’m not sure anymore (ha, like I ever had control over that). People who went back to school later in life – is it possible to go through school with a newborn/small children? Or is it best to bite the bullet and just wait it out?

This is definitely a game changer.

    I don’t know how it is being in school with a child. But I do know that studying in your 30s is so much better than when you’re 18-21! I spent a year full-time studying a language in my early 30s (for my job). I was so much more efficient at studying, so much more disciplined, so much more diligent. I achieved so much more than when I did my Masters when I was 22-23. In many ways, I wish I could do my Masters again now. Congratulations and Good luck!

      Thank you – that’s what I’ve been hearing from others too! I know I already feel WAY more focused and determined now than I ever felt when I did my BA!

    Congrats! I read this right after a post by a friend of mine who is graduating from Harvard Law with a young kid! And my husband is currently studying for a big certification exam which he studies for every evening and a few hours each weekend. It can be done!

      Thank you! I’m glad to know that – I was so worried I would have to sacrifice one dream for another – but comments like this remind me I dont!
