I cannot tell you how the events of the last week have affected me personally. I’m not going to rehash anything because I don’t believe the media deserves it. I will simply say that the once again the media has let sensationalization grip them so hard that they completely lost focus of the victims of this wretched man.
I will say that it’s been a week of motivation for me. I’m rather surprised because I’ve spent the week being physically and emotionally exhausted. But I’ve managed to make a few decisions that will result in making things better for me and my family. Bill is completely onboard with them and, truth be told, he’s just as excited as I am.
On my way to mail the envelope I stopped to tell someone I work with and she looked at me and asked, “Penn State, really?” I didn’t miss a beat and responded with, “Where else would I get my degree from?”
For those of you who don’t know here is what has been my undergraduate degree itinerary to date:
Lock Haven University, Penn State Berks Campus, Liverpool Institute of Higher Education (Liverpool, England), Penn State Main Campus – this is the end of my full time student status. When I lived in Rhode Island I took classes at Johnson & Wales University. A few years ago I took classes locally at Immaculata University.
It’s been quite a path to take, but I’m beyond thrilled that when I’m done my degree will be from Penn State. I also can’t wait to have my photo taken at the shrine with my cap & gown on and my family standing beside me.
