Higher Education

I have a B.S. in special education. Three times I have gotten close to starting my Master's degree. Each time I made a concrete step in that direction I wound up pregnant and scuttled the plans. I've been taking undergrad classes in Library Science for the last 2 semesters to meet continuing education requirements and I am considering Master's work once again. Since the hubby joined the snip-snip club 6 years ago and it doesn't seem the urologist used slipknots I am thinking it might actually happen before I hit menopause. I've heard of some institutions of higher learning offering credit for real life experience to adults contemplating career change or looking for degrees in areas they already have experience with. I've kicked around a few thesis titles. Let me know if you are aware of anyone who would find these proposals aceptable.

1. The Inverse Relationship between Juvenile Comprehension and Direct Parental Command: A Longitudinal Study in Selective Deafness
2. Chaos Theory: An Observation of the Entropic Properties of Children's Bedrooms
3. Motherheimers: A Statistical Examination of the Dementia-inducing Effects of Watching 'Barney' and 'Teletubbies'
4. Transmogrification of Cotton to Iron: A Peculiar Alchemy Corellating Missing Socks to a Proliferation of Wire Hangers
5. Culinary Cartographic Disorder: Efficacious Treatments for those Unable to Locate Food in a
Fully Stocked Pantry or Refrigerator


  • Ha! I like the Barney and Teletubies one! I have a friend who has a three yr old, and we finally got past Dora and Nemo, and thankfully got her stuck on Sponge Bob! That's one show all of us like to watch!!

    I have to disagree with Damasta, I'll take Barney over that annoying sea creature any day. Just keep the kids away from the Wiggles. That show should be rated gives me terrible nightmares!!!
