Re: My new endeavor

I'm with ya girl! The closest programs here are Clemson and Univ of Florida,
both about 5 hours in opposite directions from me. I grew up in the Clemson
area and have absolutely no desire whatsoever to go back. And Gainesville Fl
is about as college town as you can get. Went there for a job interview once
and was not impressed. I love where I live so online should work well for
me, as long as I can discipline myself to do the work. But since it's what
I'vebeen dreaming about I don't think that's too much of a stretch. I hope.
