11 degrees and counting…

Some girls collect husbands or shoes, I collect degrees!

And as of today I have one more degree.

Now I have a few friends and family members who consider this a bit on the excessive side, but in the grand scheme of things 11 is a good number (and lets not forget a few of them were free, from working at various places of higher education).

So #11 comes to me from the old job- MSB. When I quit last year I had 4 classes left on my BS in Business Administration and as I will not be taking any business classes in the near future, I decided just to bite the bullet and take them one at a time (one a quarter) to finish up.

Do I have any see any more degrees in my future? YES. I am finishing up the MA in Art History (hopefully in December 2008). Then I plan on taking a break for a while, but I do eventually plan on applying for a PhD program which will take me years to finish.
