No, I'm not pregnant or getting married. Yes, I PROMISE I will let all of you know not as soon as I find out but eventually. Lol. And I won't be one of those bloggers who pops up pregnant and you find out she's 9.5 months along and you're like YOU LIED TO ME!!! YOU LEFT ME OUT OF YOUR LIFE AND I HATE YOU, MOM!! Lolol.
Anyway, since I left my camera at my classmate's house and he lives practically in another country by Gainesville standards, I have to wait until he locates it and brings it to our lab to post the kindergarten post. ANYWAY. So I've been teasing to this special announcement for months or at least a month. It's part of my New Year's Resolution. My program was discontinued here which means we're the last class. We finish our master's degrees in May (I almost said the spring and then realized... this is the spring.... ACK). At that point, (most of) our professors (3 out of 4) will move up to W.akeForest to begin a new (or continuation of the old one) documentary program.
This one will offer a master's and an Masters of Fine Arts. The latter is a terminal degree which means it's the highest you can go in a chosen field. You can be hired as a professor as if you had a PhD because essentially in your field it IS a PhD, and accrue tenure. I've applied to the MFA program. It's one year and a great opportunity. I've always seen myself teaching one day when I decide I need a mini career break so I might as well get the necessary education while I'm (again, for those of you who weren't listening) single and childless. So we should find out in the next month or two "officially" whether we got in. Oh since I said we, all of my classmates have applied. AWESOME!!!! The thought of being with everyone for another year is so cool!
