OK so I got accepted into the Doctoral Program of a university. I'm doing it all online, but the school is an actual "brick and mortar" institution.So before I could decide, I was going back and forth between the PhD and the Ed.D program. The PhD in education is about the philosophy of education and how people learn and cognition and all that and there is a heavier emphasis on research. The Ed.D which is the Doctorate of Education involves putting it all into practice, it's for people who want a more hands-one leadership role. Which one was right for me? So after doing some research and deliberation I decided to do the Ed.D which is officially called Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership with a Specialization in Curriculum and Instruction. What a mouthful! Up until this point, earning my Master's Degree has been my life's biggest accomplishment, so earning my Doctorate will be astronomical!! I'm scared and excited at the same time. I know it is going to be tons of work but this is what I decided that I want for myself and I'm willing to do what it takes. It's definitely going to require some time management because I'm still teaching preschool and doing beauty consultations. That's why earning this degree online was the best choice. So anyway, yesterday I began my doctoral workshops to prepare for my courses. The first workshop which started yesterday is called Doctoral Success Orientation which involved completing my profile on the school's website and exploring the school of advanced studies helps to supports student academic development. So basically I learned what my resources are, and who I can link up with for assistance and guidance. Important stuff, so it was good.

In other news, I am working on picking an institution to earn my doctorate degree. The university where I earned my master's degree does not have a doctoral program for the area I am interested in. It's all good, I kinda wanted a change because I also got my bachelor's degree from that same university. Plus I am looking for a program where I can do everything online, because in addition to being a teacher I am also an independent beauty consultant. So earning my degree online is really the best choice for me.

Ok people. We made it through another Christmas. Now comes the next question. What are we doing for New Year's Eve? One of my gal pals messaged me about a masquerade party that she is planning to go to. The tickets are $60.00. I just told her I'll let her know. But the truth is, I really don't feel like spending a whole of money to get in anywhere. You don't need to spend lots of money to have fun. I'm cool to just get with a few friends and chill somewhere. So I talked to my other gal pal and she had not made any plans but was on her way to a house party and would let me know if she heard about anything for New Year's. I told her flat out that I'm not trying to shell out a lot of money and she agreed. This is my thing: If we go out, I would be fine to go somewhere for free and buy drinks. Or we could pick up a few bottles and go gather at somebody's house. It is not that deep. What matters is having fun. So as of now, I still don't know what I am doing. Hopefully I'll figure something out in the next few days.
