Well anyway, that's pretty much something that could be very much real for me in the next few years.
I am a bit of academic! I have an Undergraduate Degree in which I obtained a First Class Honours Degree (the highest undergrad degree in this country), not only that I have a Master's Degree and again worked hard to make sure I graduated with a Distinction (again the highest level of Master's Degree you could get). I have always been a geek and loved studying and learning new things. I have always worked hard to achieve what I have set out to achieve. Don't get me wrong I lived the student life at university and it wasn't all studying in my life but I knew where I wanted to go and made sure I got there.
Now, I have been asked if I would like go back to University and get a 2nd Master's Degree. The place I am currently working at have asked me if I want to further my development and studying...and the best part is, they will be paying for it. I technically don't NEED another Master's but it would help in my career development and in my long term plans it will stand me in good stead for where I want to progress to professionally. The only question / dilemma I have right now is, do I want to commit the next 3 years to the same place of work and knowing that if I saw opportunities elsewhere I could be bound to my current place of work. That's not the worst thing in the world but I am at a point in my life where I don't know where I am heading and what is going to come my way. Up until this point and up until I got my Master's I always knew the path was academia in order to do the job I do now and now my life is open to interpretation!!!...Got some decisions to make I guess!!
