Yes, I do realize that this is the second post in a row I've started with an apology but bear with me! Sorry for not posting on a regular basis lately. I've had a lot on my mind the last few weeks and somehow the baking and cooking groups feel like a chore, so I decided to take some time off and post whenever I feel like posting.
Things that have been on my mind the last weeks were my trip to Paris, the operation my mother is facing for her neck hernia and going back to college to get a bachelor degree.
I feel now is the time to go back to college, however part of my problem is that I do have a mortgage to pay, so I must study part-time. The study that I find most interesting (International Business & Languages) is only taught part-time in Rotterdam, which is about 2 hours away from here. I'm afraid I won't be able to handle the travel twice a week 4 years long since I would have to attend classes two nights per week and study, do homework and go to work 36 hours per week... The sucky part is that this study is actually taught here in Zwolle too, but only the full-time version....
Other studies that I find interesting are Communication, HRM or Law. I would love to do something with languages, only option in college is Teacher English, German or French. Another great option was European Studies, since this is quite similar to International Business & Languages, but for a part-time student this is only possible as an online study, which I don't think is very suitable for me personally: I feel need the structure and commitment of having to attend classes.
So now that you know what I've been contemplating lately, let's get on to announcing the winner of that $70 CSN gift card!! Again I used the Random Integer Generator to pick a winner from the 20 comments on this post.

Update on the college plans
Today I found out that there will be no part-time study International Business and Languages in Rotterdam... So I guess that option is definitely out. Going to an information evening at my local college on August 25th....
