I know I don't post a lot these days, but I have mentioned a time or two that I was going to school. I had an associate's degree from back in the day, but after seeing increased requirements for IT positions that require a Bachelor's (rather than just preferred) I decided to go back and finish it. For the last 18 months or so I've been attending CSU - Global Campus, which is a sister school to Colorado State University offering strictly on-line education. Essentially, they condense 12 weeks of coursework into an 8 week term, and you can take two classes each term. It consists mainly of writing many papers, participating in message boards, and taking weekly quizzes. Final projects are longer papers that typically make up about a third of your grade.
Anyway, I got my congratulatory acceptance letter this week and they're mailing me my shiny new degree; a B.S. in Information Technology. So this is me basically patting myself on the back... and perhaps moving lower for a happy ending. It'll be nice to have all my free time back, guess I'll have to find a new hobby.
