Pursuing Dreams

Posted by mamabok | My Musing,Useful Links,Useful Tips | Tuesday 28 July 2009 12:55 pm

Like many of you .. I’m always busy but that does not stop me from pursuing an interest like my dear friend – who went for an online Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership .  I am inspired by her because she like myself is a busy mother who works full time and plays full time.  There is never a moment where it is left for idle, unlike most people that I know here – who make every excuse just not to do anything but stand outside a coffee shop and chat, smoke and more chatting.  Such a shame but I’m entirely different, I can’t wait to pursue my dreams.. and now that Chloe is older, I’m looking forward to sharpening my skills in web-designing.  The local college does have a course here .. but if i took an online course – that is from a reputable online university and its papers are recognised for future references, that would be the way to go for me.  Why..??   because we own our own business and we have a kid to watch full time, it makes it more feasible to do an online course instead of having to physically go to school at a restricted time with timetable.  For people who are discipline and focus like myself, and knows what they are getting into – online studies are really a good thing – but like everything i do and advise my friends – looking into every aspect of what you are getting into is very important.  So if you don’t see me updating as much, you will understand that I’ve found a course that I am happy in doing.  Wish me luck eh !

    Good luck MB! Can I recommend a website software for you. It’s called Dreamweaver (unsure which version is out now). I used this in uni in one of my modules. I think in courses like these they will ask you to design a website using forms, tables, frames etc… So fun!
