And in other news . . .

Beware the halls of academia.

I hadn't heard anything about my college application, so I gave Bowie State a call. Apparently, it was a good thing I did because somehow the e-mail regarding my application's status from the English Dept. to the registrar's office had gotten misfiled. The gentleman I was talking too hadn't contacted four students (to include me) to inform them of what was going on.

However, he had good news for me.

I am now a proud student at Bowie State (MD) in the Master's of English program.

I'll be receiving a letter next week with information on what I need to do before the fall semester. Specifically where and when I need to sign up for classes, what classes are available this fall and any prerequisite courses I need to make up (since my Bachelor's is in History, they may have some undergrad literature classes I'm going to have to take before I officially get on "track".

However, I was doing the Snoopy dance once I hung up the phone. Well, in my mind. My knee informed me that acting out on my impulses was a poor choice.

So, now, I get to figure out how to juggle work, grad school, kendo, writing and family.

I know, I'll just give up sleeping. Just wasted time after all.

Well, I'm hoping to finish in a reasonable amount of time so I can start applying to do some Adjunct Faculty in the future. I wouldn't mind teaching the occasional mandatory class as long as they let me teach some other stuff . . . like "The Science of Science Fiction" *grin*

Well, it's another five years for me because I've opted to go on for the Ph.D. I'm sure you'll finish in two just fine! (And yes, as long as I get to teach "Technology as Hero, Technology as Villain: An Historical Survey," I'll teach all the Robert Browning they want...

I'm anticipating three years. Two classes a semester and summers off. I think that's about how much I can handle and still be a full-time employee too.

yeah, the head of the graduate department is already beating me up about getting my doctorate.
