So I have spent for as long as I can remember playing the “What will I be when I grow up game” Do you know that game? We all play it with little kids, and as little kids. “So, what are you going to be when you grow up?” “Oh, I want to be a ” And then we fill in the blank. Normally by the time kids hit middle school they have a somewhat solid idea of what they want to be. By high school, most kids have it in the bag and start making plans. Some kids might have changed it up, but at least start heading in some direction. Some people start school change their minds and change off into another direction. Some people even go to college, start their careers, decide they want to try something else and start all over again.
My problem: I change my mind so often, I couldn’t even get though a class! Yes, It was that bad when I was younger. I tried! I am still like that. I get really, really into things. I mean obsessively into things, and then, I find something new. So going to college for me, was hard.I tried. I tried online classes, I tried going to school. But I couldn’t choose. Because I couldn’t decide what I wanted, I just didn’t go. It was a bad chance I always hated that I made. Then I became a mom, and I decided I was happy focusing on that. When I found blogging, it was like I finally fell into my place, career wise, because it was finally a place that, for me, combined so many of my many dreams. Although, having a degree is still on that list of dreams.
I have a hard time fitting in time to get a hair cut or lunch with a friend. And even the few times that I do, I have at least one child with me. So when I start thinking about trying to go back to school, I wonder how I would fit in going back to a class every day, or even a few times a week, at a set time. In my life, my husband works evenings and nights and he sleeps by day. He is only home on Sundays, so it doesn’t leave a lot of time. I can not even begin to see how it could fit into my schedule.
Ivy Bridge College is an online college that allows moms like me, the chance to get a degree. It isn’t that online school is easier. The work is the same. Some say it is actually harder because you have to do it on your own. But the difference is, you can do it on your own time. You can do it once the kids go to bed. You can do it once the kids are taking a nap, or playing quietly. Ivy Bridge College can give a mom the ability to earn a college degree in as little as 17 months and then transfer the credits seamlessly to a “name brand” 4-year schools to earn a bachelor’s. That is a big deal. Since mom’s are pressed for time, they do not want to have classes that do not count, and they do not want the headache or dealing with transfer troubles. And IBC costs less than 1/3 of what it costs to attend other private schools
