Back to School (Again)

By July 19, 2007 blogs, gen y, lj, school, skills

I registered for a few classes at TCC – Principles of Accounting I and Pre-Calculus. I know, I know — you’re thinking, why does this girl sign up for weird, boring classes like accounting and calculus and rhetoric?  I’m taking them because I have decided to apply to the MBA program at ODU (and maybe a few other places) next year. Calculus is a required course to apply, and so are Accounting I and II (at a few other places).

Of course, I’ve made the decision to apply to grad school for multiple things over the past few years, so perhaps this plan will change again. If I remember correctly, my decision to take Modern Rhetoric last year was supposed to put me on the path towards earning an M.A. in English. And if you’ve been reading this blog long enough, you might recall my passionate plan to enroll in the Walter Cronkite School at Arizona State.

In order to prepare for my bright future as a business expert (and to build on my already-exceptional marketing skills), I’ve been keeping up with the blogs kept by the likes of Nadira Hira (writer for Fortune), Jeremy Pepper (of POP! PR), Guy Kawasaki, and Garr Reynolds (Presentation Zen). 

Actually, I’ve been avidly reading these blogs because my friend Chris DeMay took down his website – most likely due to a lack of participation – and I found myself looking for additional reading material.

If you can’t tell, I’m trying to make my LJ more interactive by providing more relevant links in the text. Have fun clicking.
