Here I go again…

There´s a lady who´s sure all knowledge is gold… That sentence tells pretty much why I’m studying once again.

Back in high school, I was bored with studying. It was not  very motivating to listen to lectures for hours and hours. The worst thing was that there was nothing to do to speed up your graduation. Luckily, nowadays it’s far easier to influence on the duration of your studies.

After matriculation examination, I worked as a journalist for couple of years. I had started writing articles when I was 15 so it was quite easy to get a job. After few years, I thought it would be nice to study again but even the thought of sitting in a lecture hall made me nauseous. What could I do? One day I saw an advertisement of MTi degree in Markkinointi-Instituutti. When I started to study, I knew that distance learning is my kind of thing!

Give him an inch and he’ll take a yard…  After MTi I’ve studied my Bachelor’s Degree, Marketing Communications (vocational degree) and now I’ve started my studies in Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. All this with a full time job. I have been asked how it is possible and how I manage to do that. The point is that I love to study as long as I don´t have to sit and listen to a lecture after another. When I can study where ever and whenever I wish, I just love it!!

Please join my journey, maybe you will learn something too 🙂
