first of all Clemson was absolutely fabulous. I had a great time with my friends and I was so extremely happy to see some of the girls I hadn't seen in a long time. The baby shower was absolutely fab and I can't thank everyone enough for everything they did. There will be a much better post on all things baby shower later..

I cannot write about happy things right now.. because I am too PISSED off.

The basic 411:

I picked College of Notre Dame to go to graduate school because I would be able to work full time while finishing my degree. It is ridiculously more expensive then some of the other programs I could be enrolled in right now because it is private. But it WAS one of the sole programs that allowed you to work full time the entire time you were enrolled. So after discussing financially with the hubster we decided it was very doable for us to have baby Ethan and build our house and have me finish grad school.. as long as I was working. Well I get an email from my advisor today saying they have changed program requirements..

So i think okay lovely.. ill have to take one more class or an additional class.. whatever at this point it doesn't really make too much of a difference because I still have 1.5 years to go in the program. BOY was I wrong! There new requirements is that you full time student teach for an entire semester while NOT working. Meaning 5 months with no paycheck.. and that's if I could work up til the time I started student teaching and got a job right after I was finished.

So my whole reason for picking this program is null and void and now.. So now I will ponder what to do.. man oh man do I need a margarita right now!!!!!!


  1. I hate schools trying to "f" people over. Clemson is trying to "f" Billy over currently by taking back a transfer credit they gave him two years ago which may keep him in an entire year longer. University staff are not my favorite people right now. Hope you two can figure out a plan B :)

  2. ooooooo let me at em!
    you can't CHANGE program requirements mid way!
    you can change them for INCOMING STUDENTS.
    psh. please raise some Jen-hell up in that school.
    I've yet to make my video but I"m still planning on it.
