This story begins in the month of September, the year 2004. Picture a young woman (OK, so I was in my late 30s), wide-eyed with wonder and excitement... about to embark on an educational journey into the unknown world of the Industrial/Organizational Psychology Masters Program. (OK, say that 10 times fast -- I dare ya!)
Fast forward to the present moment...
With all the best intentions in the world I set out to have my degree in my hot little hands by September 2006. The long and short...due to some interesting and not so fun events with my thesis, September has come and gone and I am still in school. I'll admit, I was a tad disappointed at first, but once the disappointment subsided I reminded myself that all things happen for a reason.
Working on my Masters has certainly been a test of my endurance, my sanity (at times), and my patience. I have even proved to myself that I can be a better graduate student than undergrad (which is a good thing, let me tell ya). Now I am happy to report that I am at the end of the journey. On Wednesday, I defended my thesis and the outcome was wonderful! The good news, with a few minor additions my thesis is ready to go up for final review.
Cross your fingers and stay tuned. :)
