A few weeks ago Kyle joked that once I finish my Master's program that I should consider going for my Ph.D. I'm not going to lie this has been something that I have thought about while laying in bed at night but not something I have given real serious thought. Since he made that comment I have been thinking about it a lot more.
I will graduate with my Master's in Psychology in February and I hope to find work as a CDC (child development center) counselor or even something in management like a director or assistant director. One of the upsides about working would be that I could have Emersyn in the CDC with me and I would have access to her, I know a few people who have done this and it worked out great. Of course, if I don't find work right away I would consider finding a Ph.D program and continuing my education.
I have researched a few programs and would likely pursue a Ph.D in Psychology with a specialization in Educational or School Psychology. For me it is important to always have goals and to push myself to do things that I never thought I would or could do. I want to show Emersyn that no matter how long it takes you can achieve your dreams.
Since we are looking at a move next summer it will be interesting to see how this all unfolds. Whatever happens I am excited for the future.
