You know, Mary J. Blige. Love her. Now that my Yahoo! Music is dun (done), I’m back to listening to what’s on file. Today, MJB and Grey’s Anatomy.
Our office server has been acting up for a few days and it’s hindering my work. Since I can’t access my share drive, I can’t access my work programs or I can only access them sporadically and then they conk out. The folks from Dell are coming to service the thing today, it’s been such a nightmare. Not to mention our debit card database runs on that server so when it doesn’t work people can’t use their cards (meals, spending, et al). Luckily – classes are out of session and only a handful of folks are here this week.
In other news, I’m nearly done with my application for Capella University. I’m going to enroll in their Master’s of Educational Psychology. I’m excited to finally get moving on my master’s. The sooner I start, the sooner I can finish and move on to do things I actually want to do. Here is my (in five sentences or less) goal statement:
Having several years of experience in higher education, I would like to advance my career and further my education to better serve a diverse population at an urban public university. I have a passion for working directly with students, advising them or helping them work through obstacles and I feel that a master’s degree in Educational Psychology will help strengthen and enhance my skills to better assist students in their decision making processes. Further, obtaining my master’s would provide the necessary credentials that when coupled with my experience in assisting students would initially qualify me for positions working directly with counseling students in an academic or student affairs setting. I believe that obtaining my master’s degree in Educational Psychology will not limit me to one specific field or track at this early juncture in my professional career, rather it would provide room for growth and professional advancement. Finally, this degree will help me achieve my goal of earning a doctorate in higher education leadership in the future, furthering my career serving a college or university setting.
Have a good one my friends.
