Graduate School.


Life happens when you have other plans, right? I was fully not intending to turn the age I am turning in two days, still single. In the likelyhood I will be supporting myself on a teacher's salary for the rest of my life I think I might start a Masters of Education program, either at Utah Valley University or Southern Utah University - starting this June! Okay, so I applied to UVU yesterday....

I was starting on a master's equivalency program through BYU (Reading Endorsement), but then decided, maybe I just ought to get my masters if I am going to put in all that work. This might cramp my $$ and travelling style though. Priorities?

I think that's a great idea! Especially because that equivalency program was a masters in all but the name. Might as well really have the title! I can see you as phd person. I bet you'd love teaching college.

Anyway, I'm excited for your birthday! And your life is so rich! Think of all the things you would have missed out on if you were already married! And there's still PLENTY of time for all that stay-home married stuff. ;)

Good luck! That is so great. I've always admired how smart you are.. it makes sense that you would get a Masters :) I wish you the best.

And happy happy birthday on Thursday! Don't give up yet sister.. You are beautiful and talented and I know things will work out the way you want them to.. eventually. The Lord's timing is a curious, head-scratching thing sometimes.

How exciting, Krystal! It will be some work, but I'm sure it will be worth it. It feels so good to learn and I'm sure that you are being guided to where you need to be!!! You're awesome - and happy birthday this week!!!

That's great! A lady in my neighborhood is doing the one through SUU. She's liking it. So, yeah, go for it!
And Happy Birthday tomorrow!

Always inspiring woman! I think this is an awesome idea. And I second everyones' responses. The Lord's timing is a curious thing...look at my life..;) but it always works out.
And Happy, happy Birthday...this is a wonderful time to be alive and really living!

It will totally pay off, no matter what your future holds. I got mine with the same sort of qualms, but I have never regretted it. It has come in handy in several instances. Handy meaning more desirable when applying for a job in a new place (which has happened twice--two different states) and the bump in pay :) I'm happy for you that you're doing it!

Awesome decision, Krystal! Good Luck!
