Prompt 10: Toot Your Own Horn

Goal:  Create some publicity.

Strategy:  Announce an accomplishment.

Prompt:  Create a mini-celebration for yourself.

For example, it’s time to celebrate my accomplishment.  My father and my brother have flown in.  Yesterday we spent some family time together.  Today we’re going down to Chicago to participate in my commencement ceremony.  Tomorrow we gather for a family celebration.

It’s official:  I have a Master of Science in Written Communications and a Master Certificate in Corporate Written Communications.

Yay me!

See how easy that was?

    OMG!?! Congratulations Stephanie. That is a fantastic achievement, for anyone, yet you’ve done it while coping with autism /and/ giving your children all the love and support they need. Be proud. 🙂

    • I’m proud. I also got exposed to an illness, so I’m a bit tired and recouperating, too.

      I’m still working on what comes next. I have ideas, but they lead in two different directions. Choices, choices.

      • acflory says:

        Ugh, I hope it’s nothing serious. And I hope something happens to point you in the right direction. 🙂

      • Not serious, just annoying. It started as a cold, but quickly became bronchitis. I’ve gone through my course of antibiotics and I’m on the mend, but I’m still more tired than I want to be.

        And I think I have been pointed in the right direction now. I’m considering getting a second masters degree to learn how to design and operate a non-profit organization. The more I look into it, the more it seems the right course for me. And I just found out that one of the people I wanted to recommend me as part of the application process graduated from the university I want to apply to, so it’s yet another arrow pointing the way forward.

      • acflory says:

        Bronchitis can be nasty so get a second course of antibiotics if necessary.

        I’d love to see you writing and publishiing some fiction, but I do like the sound of that second masters. With it you will be able to maximize all of your skills.

        How long will this second masters take? Two years or three? And would you get any credits for studies you have already completed?

      • The second masters would take two years, and I would be starting fresh, because I haven’t taken anything like the classes that are part of this program.

        It would be a totally different direction, scholastically speaking; but it would combine with the knowledge I have to make for a very powerful tri-factor.

      • acflory says:

        I swear I envy your determination and energy! Oh and your ability to juggle – being a mother, writer, marketer, advocate, blogger and a student is about four jobs too many for me.

      • For me, too, but if I didn’t, then, well, bad things happen. *shrugs* We all do the best we can, and there are few of us who ever feel our best is good enough. But I keep trying.

      • acflory says:

        Sadly I think the difference in our ages comes into play here. I probably have the time, I just don’t have the same level of energy. 😦
