Grad school?

I thought I should update, since it has been quite a while. I have been very busy with schoolwork lately, not to mention moving and getting unpacked, etc.

These classes I'm in are the core courses for the library science graduate program I'm supposed to start in the fall. I have not enjoyed them very much at all. They are far less interesting than I had hoped, and I do not enjoy the coursework at all. For this reason, I am strongly considering not starting school in the fall. I would love to take the semester off, and I'll probably find a different job, where I can work 20-30 hours a week. I think I need some time to reevaluate my life and decide what's best for me and my family in the long run. I've never felt very strongly about having a career, and I've never really, truly loved working anywhere. The thought of a normal 9-5 job does not entice me one bit, and I don't feel like that is what God is calling me to do. The only thing I know for sure that I am supposed to do in this life is to be a wife and a mother.

Keep me (and Tyler) in your thoughts and prayers, especially over these next few weeks as we try to decide what I will be doing after graduation. This is a really tough decision to make, and we are praying for God's guidance through all of this.

Hopefully I'll manage to update more regularly once I don't have schoolwork anymore. Only 3 more weeks!

I saw your blog on the decorating board, and I am going through the same thing! I wanted to get my masters in counseling, took some classes, and decided it wasn't for me. Now I am just trying to find out what my "passion" is! Good luck with whatever you do and I'm sure everything will work out!
