I've been seriously thinking about going back to school for my Masters in Linguistics this Fall, at San Jose State University. There are lots of reasons why not to do it, and only a few good reasons why I SHOULD, but I keep thinking about it! If I did, Peter would adjust his schedule so that he was home when I wouldn't be, so they would always have one parent with them--no child care. BUT, it would be a bit hard on Peter to be home for that time and trying to work from home.
The program at SJSU is relatively inexpensive, takes ~2 years, with 6-9 units per semester, and admission is not tough, so nothing too crazy. On the other hand, being that easy, is it worth anything? And what would I actually DO later with it? Anything? Would I get a PhD later? And is it worth the potential hardship on my family, or is it all just for my suffering stay-at-home-mom ego?
Anyway, take my poll, and comment on this post if you have any thoughts. I'm eager to be the beneficiary of your wisdom.
