I love this idea! Dogs helping students de-stress during finals – I could definitely use that! My mom’s beloved sweetie-pie Lhasa Apso, Vincent (r.i.p), was a part of the PAWS Across Texas, an animal assisted therapy program and I always thought it was such a wonderful thing.
Whoah. Shit got real, real fast. I finally sat down and picked up my college research again and with lightening speed things are taking shape. It’s surreal to me how my understanding of college has just ‘clicked’ this year; I just get it now. And what I don’t get at first, I quickly figure out. The past two weeks I figured out that I will be going back to school- this Fall! I was maybe a bit short-sighted on this one due to being consumed by burlesque, but I definitely wasn’t expecting to get back on the horse so soon. I mean, while I researched my ass off in February I only did it for about a month. I would say that one month and the two weeks I’ve been back at it is crazy fast to have this much figured out.
My initial research had me thinking that I would be attending a 5 year B.Arch degree program. Scratch that. I settled on the “4+2” (definition below) that I was so sure wasn’t for me. Why? Well, despite the 5 year being concentrated study it does not result in a Masters degree in most schools; apparently this is changing but it’s not there yet. Of course the four-two does and I like that. Also, I wanted to have a minor and take classes in a variety of subjects and the natural breaking point after gaining my bachelors appealed to me. However, all this is secondary since I’m a transfer student and as I understand it means I’m ineligible for that path, which does make since to me.
