Uh-oh, I’ve done it again. I’m enrolled, and I start school again in a month and a half. I know I graduated in May (finished my Associate’s degree in December). I know I tried a different online school and didn’t care for their Bachelor’s program and dropped out after finishing one class and not finishing a second one.
This time I’ve gone back to my first school, and I’m not going for a Bachelor’s degree. I’m going for a dual Associate’s degree. I don’t have to take any of the Liberal Arts classes in the program. My credits transfer over from the program I just completed. I only have to take the content classes so I’m already half done with the second degree. This time I’m going for what I probably should have gone for in the first place. This time the degree will more closely match what I do in my day job.
Yes, I’m going for an Associate’s degree in Paralegal Studies. Am I crazy? Maybe. Am I excited about it? Yes. I’ve missed school! Okay, yes, I am crazy. I guess I’m addicted to learning. I’m excited to learn more about the law and more about what paralegals do in other areas of the law. My legal experience consists of 8 years in a law firm’s Human Resources department and 8 years in Intellectual Property (Patents, Trademarks & Copyrights) departments at two different law firms. I look forward to learning more. Yep, definitely crazy!
