As some of you may know, I have been working on my Master’s in Business Administration Degree at our local University for the past 2 years. After several group projects, homework, presentations, and exams, this rewarding project came to an end last Saturday, December 10th, by walking across stage at graduation and enjoying a graduation party with family and friends.
Over the course of my time in school, I have met some neat life-long friends and mentors, experienced some interesting project groups & discussions, enjoyed some insightful lectures, developed a great learning toolbox full of helpful techniques and tips, and several great memories. Since this project’s closure, I have been asked by several individuals, “What’s your next set of goals?”
- Are you going to get your PhD?
- Start your own business or become a manager?
- Travel the world?
- Teach a college course?
- Start a family of your own?
Honestly, it is an interesting question to reflect upon before answering, especially when you have completed one project in your live, such as school, for which you have done for a very long time. Yes, in this case, learning never stops, but maybe sitting in a formal education setting may.
So, what’s next? Most importantly, I am excited to spend more time with my family and friends and thank them for all of their love and support they have given me, as I could not have completed this accomplishment without them. I plan to enjoy cooking, baking, go on vacations, relax (if I know what that word means J), but I look forward to what is about to come and is written down in my next chapter in my book of life. Life is a journey and you don’t know what path you’ll head down, but it’s nice to have an open door of several opportunities before me.
What is your next project or goals you are reaching for this upcoming New Year?
