An essay and a favour

I am currently in the throes of completing my last (hopefully) essay for my MBA. This, together with work stuff has been making my blogging a little more sporadic of late but once this essay is in at least my time outside of work will be my own again. The MBA has been a huge undertaking on top of full time work and this last essay is the culmination of 5 years of study starting with a Post Graduate Certificate, then Diploma and then the Masters degree. I am so looking forward to finishing.

In the meantime, feel free to take a peek at my most recent posts if you haven't been by in a while, or visit any of my worthy blog friends in the side bar, but especially please go and visit CrazieQueen. CQ is a good friend of mine and she has just lost her dear cat Pandora or Pandy as she was affectionately known. I know how much Pandy meant to her and I know she is grieving at the moment. If anyone has ever lost a beloved pet then you will know a little of what she is feeling right now. Thank you.

I can feel for you...I can only imagine what it will be when my husband is done his doctoral studies. He will still have to work on the dissertation portion, but the classwork is killing me (since I proofread all his papers, and listen to him talk to himself!)

I'm going to visit CQ today, too...

Michele sent me here...though I would have come on my own!

Good luck with your essay. I know the feeling trying to juggle study around work and everything else. I'm struggling to get my assignments in on time and I'm not even working at the moment!

I say good luck too, Bob-kat, although I know ou don't really need luck!
Sorry to hear about Pansy. I'll go and visit CQ now.

Hi BK!

I can relate to being busy, although I have taken some time out of my schedule to dispatch with some unpleasantness of late. Fortunately it was a rather short-lived skirmish. Hope all is well and congratulations on the near completion of your degree.

Michele sent me,

I think a number of us are willing you on to success with the MBA.

I'll drop by to cq too.

And here this time via Michele! Have a great weekend!

I was going to go over to CQ's right after I visited you, My Dear...I feel for her---I Truly Do....Much good luck with this essay...!

I think my reluctance to do training with work nowadays is partly down to remembering university days ...

Keep on plugging away with the essays, it's worth it in the end to be able to add those letters to your name as well as the tools that the studying gives you :-)

Congrats on being so close to the finish line. It must be very exciting for you to be at this stage.

I'm heading over to see CQ. Poor baby. Michele sent me and it's a good thing she did!

good luck with finishing! it can feel so long... but the pay-off when you finish is well worth it!

Sara said...

Congrats on having the courage to go back and get this degree! I know it was a long hard 5 years! I can understand that.

I've been over to CQ's and feel so badly for her!

Thanks for visiting me recently! Good to see you again.

Bev Sykes said...

Congratulations on being so close. And yes, I went to CQ. I always do what Michele's other readers tell me to do! Good luck...

kenju said...

Michele sent me back, and I scrolled down to see your sweet baby animals again. I just have to go to the zoo, soon!

This MBA thing sure takes a long time, B-K. I did mine on a part-time basis and it took 3 years but the educational system here in the States is a lot different than what you have over the Pond. Good luck with that essay!

Michele sent me over!
