After about two-and-a-half years I am finally finished with all my classes! Today is my last day of school at Ashford University and I just turned in my last research paper. All of my message board posts are finished and there are no more assignments. It is hard to imagine that its over!
What is the next step? I’m looking at several possibilities, but I am certain that I will move on to graduate school. After meeting with a family friend, who is a professor at Brandman University, there are three areas of study I’m considering. Currently, I’m thinking I’ll probably re-apply to Chapman University for their Marriage and family therapy MA degree. However, I am also considering studying English instead or perhaps finding the right creative writing program. Whatever I decide, I’m going to enjoy my well deserved vacation from academia!
Now that I will have more free time, I’ve decided to continue working on my current novel, “Fear” (not the final title). It has been a long time since I’ve worked on a non-school related project, so it will be great to write for the fun again. I’m also thinking about writing another short story or maybe even re-writing Fallen Raven, which has yet to be published. I haven’t really looked at the manuscript for a long time, so I could give it a fresh look.
I’m excited for this new year and what it will bring.
