Talking Peggys new adventure

To all my friends on the forum!

I have decided to go back to school full time, while working full time! We'll see how long I can keep up with this at my age. I am pursuing a degree in Humane Leadership which is non profit for animal rescue. It's what I want to do when I retire from the business world. Given that, I won't be contributing to the forum as much I typically do, but will dive in when I can. This is the best forum out there and want to continue to be a part of this great group of folks and furries. Just wanted to let you know!

Best

Peggy

Good luck in your new venture Peggy.

I went back to university for 12 years while working full time and I know what the demands are and the dedication required.

Most of all, congratulations for planning for an active retirement and dedicating it to such a worthwhile cause.

I went back to school too, but wasn't working full-time, so things were easier for me.

Peggy - we'll miss your steadiness here, but I think that's a great thing you're doing - and I wish you the very, vey best with your studies!

Do keep in mind that grad schools can have as much nonsense as do some forums on the Internet, so you will need to use your excellent discrimination to sort out the great from the wobbly; haha! In the end, I also learned that it can be useful to choose your courses according to who is teaching them! As you progress, you probably get more choices than you do in the beginning, and by that time, you'll probably have learned who the best teachers are [grin]

Should be a very fascinating couse of studies! Don't forget to enjoy yourself doing this stuff!

Tons of love and hugs, and Kwali, Kumbi and Camellia all say, Yay for you! - as they play with Forbin at the Bridge!

You are going to need a lot of caffeine! Already I have been thinking about all of the creatures who will benefit from your work.

Good luck! - if anyone can juggle both, I am sure you can. Now, even more creatures will benefit from your kindness and knowledge.
We will miss your active participation on this board, though.

Best wishes on your new adventure! Right now, I'm doing well to handle part-time and retirement (with a special needs Yorkie).
