Resuming Pace: I Shall Not Be Pursuing a Second Bachelor's Degree

On May the 5th, 2021, I used a strong position deciding my pursuit of a second Bachelor’s degree: my choice was the University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC, link ), but I decided to resume my Master’s program, by itself.  Let me explain with Scripture: the Gospel of Jesus Christ According to Matthew, specifically. In ancient times, records of a man called Jesus the Christ were written. Among these records was a Gospel, According to Matthew, of Jesus Christ. According to legend, Jesus Christ stated, “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth (KJV, Matthew 5:5, link ).” Jesus the Christ was saying those who are submissive shall inherit the earth rather than those who are brash.  In my attempt at starting a second Bachelor’s program, I eventually realized I had been too pushy: I wanted the May 19th start date, and I wanted the admission process expedited, I wanted ease of access between majors, I wanted advantages to the application process because of what UMGC (I was gra

Donald Trump's YouTube Ban: Live with It

On January 6, 2021, I watched it transpire from my hotel room in Brentwood, Tennessee: it was an atrocity. President Trump goaded his crowd of supporters over and again, but he was not alone.

Changing Pace: Pursuing a 2nd Bachelor's Degree

In higher education, nothing sets the standard for entry level jobs like a Bachelor's degree. Learners often seek an Associate's degree, according to the NCES (National Center for Education Statistics), 49 percent of the United States population ( link ). But they also often progress to a Bachelor's level degree, us being 39 percent of the United States population according to NCES. Thus, there is a 10 percent difference in population regarding who has an Associate's degree versus who has a Bachelor's degree. Even greater, the NCES reported 9 percent of the United States population has a Master's or Doctorate degree: I am working toward a Master's degree. But I recently decided to try for something I wanted, years ago: a 2nd Bachelor's degree. Let me explain. Standards Are High In my current university, the Johns Hopkins University, the standard is raised high: basically, I need a B- or better for every class (I can earn a degree with 1 C-range grade, bu
