College, Career, Marriage and a Family

With the end of my last class of my Masters being a week from today it got me to thinking. I remembered one of my professors at Pt Loma say that the right order of life was college, career, marriage and then a family. When I heard that I smiled thinking that I was currently doing the college aspect, but that I didn’t really care about a career, so the marriage and family next was fine by me.

Backing up a little more, I remember in high school when it was time to decide what major I was going to have in college to determine what job I was going to do for the rest of my life and I thought I wanted to be a counselor. Funny how I went into college with a psychology major, changed it to nursing, and then finally to social work which is what I graduated with my BA in.

It wasn’t until I had college done, I got married, and then started a career, that I finally started that psychology degree that I thought I wanted way back in high school. And now 3 years later I am finished with that. So I guess all I have left in that list my professor told me about is the family part. Not sure when that is going to happen, but between now and then I am going to enjoy time with Thomas WITHOUT school! There has been a very small span of time when we have lived together and I have not been in school. And career. I am inadvertently made a little career here at Boeing and hey, I guess I will enjoy my corporate years, cause who knows what God has next in life for me!

But hooray! 1 week, 7 days, 168 hrs, or 10080 minutes from now I will be done with school! Big {sigh} of relief.

(I did get contacted about a PhD and started stressing out about the thought of it. Don’t think that is on my plate in the near future or possibly ever!)
