Higher Learnin'

Park University

Dust off you mortarboards and sharpen those pencils, The Wednesday Weekly is officially going back to school... again...

That's right, rubes, my official acceptance papers were dropped off via a dive-bombing carrier pigeon yesterday announcing that I was accepted to Park University's Masters Program.

Hopefully in two years I will emerge a full-blown Master of Public Administration with an emphasis on Not-for-profits and Community Service.

I know what you are thinking, I'm just doing it for the money. And you would be right.

As part of the admissions process, of course, I could not entirely hide my abysmal undergraduate performance at Ye Old Missouri University so the Deans and Doctors at Park agreed to take me on with a few conditions...  I am really hoping one of these conditions involves helping a professor move into a new house. Heavy lifting worked wonders for my grades in the past.

The Librarian will also be taking classes with me as she goes for the gold and completes her second Masters degree. Hopefully she will keep me on point and won't let me get too far behind in my studies.

With a Masters program now on my plate, this means I will probably have to put my Graphic Design classes on hold for a while. Which is kind of sad, considering I was having so much fun with them.

On the plus side, I am now officially a Pirate.

Park Pirates

There is only a handful of people still around that will enjoy the fact that after having a pirate name for nine years, I am now becoming a real Pirate.
