My daughter and I have been discussing Colleges, Careers and planning college visits. She is signed up to take the SAT exam (twice) and I recently signed my son up for DRIVER’S EDUCATION CLASS :)
There is no doubt that they are growing up waaaay too fast for me! So in the midst of all this change, and possibly in order to remain a little in denial, I stayed really busy on the computer today!
I spent some time updating this blog and checking out ‘steampunk‘ ideas since my daughter is planning a steampunk party with her friends this weekend and my son needs ideas for an outfit. We already have a lot of good decorating ideas, but I should probably keep the steampunk post for another day!
So while cruising around the internet, I actually did something productive and found a great website with some college/career planning information. It has a quiz that you can take to help you decide about college majors and/or career choices. It also matches college choices with your student interests.
Whenever I want to keep a website in my “favorites”, I figure it is probably something that someone else would like to know about too and so in order to not be selfish, I am sharing it here and adding it to the links section :
There are a ton of those funny Memes going around and I just thought that I would sorta share my recent thoughts here in a similar form:
