Since starting college at the age of 22, I have been a part-time student at Bunker Hill Community College. It is only when I transferred into Salem State University upon completing my Associates from BHCC that I enrolled as a full-time student. As a husband and father of two young children, this would prove to be quite challenging. What I did have on my side, however, was the flexibility of work. I left my full-time job at a bank to have the time needed for school.
I’ve been a part-time rideshare driver now for close to two years and a half. I’d take the kids to their daycare in the morning and work for a while before and/or after my classes.
I am now contemplating on whether or not I should pursue a Masters in English. Not only would I have the qualifications to teach as a professor, which was my initial plan entering college, but it would be a personal fulfillment of my educational goals. I enjoy reading and writing, so having a career where I can apply my interest would be a dream come true.
I have had to put many books on hold, due to my full commitment of school. There is a long list I keep in my phone of the books I have yet to conquer, books I have found via other books or featured articles.
I have recently rekindled the flame between Twitter and I, for I know of its importance in obtaining live information.With it, I hope to gain like-minded acquaintances and ultimately be able to find freelance work. With every class that I have taken, I am fortunate enough to say how much I have grown as a writer, speaker and thinker. My Public Relations minor, for example, has shown me how to successfully create PR campaigns – a career that I am now considering.
