A few things to update on:
As you know (or don't know) I work for the sister store of Lululemon. We were told completely out of left field that they are transitioning to e-commerce and are closing over 60 stores in the US and Canada by August 20th. I've been fortunate to have been offered to transition with the Lululemon team and was offered a spot there.
With school, I had the goal of enrolling in a masters program by 2018. After an interview with Slippery Rock this past Friday, they are reviewing my credits to see what further steps I need to complete in order to move towards my goal. I envision myself being in Education, specifically a guidance counselor. To get a degree or a certification in PA is considered "top notch" and you can teach or work anywhere in the US. However, if you are from out of the state and want to teach PA, you need to have a certification from PA. Fingers crossed that they will take the majority of my credits to enroll in the School Education program. If not, I will take the necessary steps to get there regardless. It's just really a matter of how long it will take me, and that will range from 2-4 years of schooling. I'm ready for the challenge and glad I have the support and encouragement from others. Right on.
Goals are turning into action so I'm excited where all this may lead. Stay tuned!
