please remind me what the work load is like. i went to college and took a few classes in my early 20s, and found it all very easy, but i had a lot less responsibility back then so i think my perception was skewed. now i am 31, married, 2 kids, soon to be 3. i work very part time from home. so i do have the typical mom and wife duties.
since exiting the JWs a few months ago, i decided to go back to school to get my masters in speech pathology. i am putting myself on a timeline and want to be finished in 6 years. in order to do this, i will have to cram my GE into 3 semesters (plus summer school) instead of 4. this semester i have signed up for 5 classes, and am petitioning for a unit overload to get a 6th. we are going to china to adopt our third child at the end of this summer, so i feel like i should take as many courses as i can this semester before she comes home so that way i can have an lighter load in the fall semester if need be.
however, i need someone to remind me how much work is involved and perhaps slap me back into reality. would 6 classes be doable for a mom? the classes are all either distance learning (online or TV) or night classes when my husband is home to watch the kids. i was planning on doing all my study in the early mornings, during the day when my kids are at school (4.5 hours each day) and on weekends when my husband is home.
