How to Balance Motherhood with Full Time Study

Being a mother will be one of the most challenging things in your life.  Whether you are a single mother or have a great family filled with children, getting back to school is not an easy task.  If you decide that it is time to get back to school, earn a degree and find yourself a job, attending an online college might be the best option for you.  Online colleges offer you the chance to earn a degree while working at your own pace and in many cases not having to visit the campus during that time.  Here are some tips to help balance college workload and being a mom.

Find Online Courses

If the decision you made was to attend school, get a degree and go back to working as a mother, there is one place you should look first.  In many cases, online courses will allow you to earn the same degree you can study for while attending a physical campus.  Online courses that will allow you to earn a degree on your own time include Norwich University and the online military history degree program they offer.

Ask For Help

Even though you will be able to work at your own pace, getting the work done is still going to be a task.  Of course, you can do your studying at the end of the day when the children are asleep, but that is not always going to be the ideal situation.  On top of that, being able to get to a quiet, clean study area is going to benefit the studying that you want to do.  Ask your family for help so you can get away for a few hours and really dig into the studying for your military history degree.

Get to the Library if You Can

Even though the internet is a great resource for a ton of information regarding just about any topic in the world, being able to get to the library when you can is going to be helpful.  The library is typically quiet and will give you plenty of room to spread out so you are not hindered by outside distractions when trying to study.  Depending on the ages of your children, they might even come with you to get some reading in on their own, while you study.  It can be a nice place to add value to your family time.

Balancing studying and motherhood can be a task and not many people are going to be up for it, but with these tips you can get your online courses figured out and get the degree you are hoping for.  Once you have your degree, it will be easier for you to get back into the working world in a capacity that is right for you.  There are so many resources available, but planning the right path to your new degree is going to be a very important.

Celebrate Mardi Gras on February 28th!

Laissez les bon temps rouler…let the good times roll!  Mardi Gras is just around the corner, so it’s time to get your king cake, gumbo, a fancy mask, and some beads and hit the parade route! 

 

Beads ready to be thrown…

So much fun!

For nearly 10 years, my husband and I lived just outside of New Orleans. Celebrating Mardi Gras became a Louisiana tradition for our family. While the city and the French Quarter has a reputation for partying and debauchery, Mardi Gras is actually a fun, family event that includes weeks of parades, balls, and celebrations. Krewes, or social clubs, host parades with elaborate floats, marching bands, performers, and of course, beads! If you’re lucky, you might also be able to snag a coveted doubloon, Moonpie, a stuffed animal, or a cup. People line up hours in advance of the parade to make sure they get the perfect spot to score the best throws. Custom built ladder seats give kids a great view of the fantastic themed floats. Each year, parades take place all along the Gulf Coast including not only New Orleans, but Mobile and in some Mississippi cities as well. 

One of the amazing parade floats

Although it changes from year to year, Mardi Gras Day, or Fat Tuesday, is on February 28 this year. Unfortunately here in Florida, celebrating Mardi Gras isn’t too common, but if you ever have an opportunity to take in a parade, I’d highly recommend it! They really are fun, unique events like no other. 

On a side note, Universal Orlando does hold a Mardi Gras celebration each year complete with floats, street performers, and beads. So while it might not be the “real deal”, if you’re at Universal, it’s definitely worth checking out.
