Planning to Take Career Diploma at Home

The future
It has been so long I have planned to take career diploma at home even before I got my first job.  Time went fast and I was not able to take it due of many things I was facing, from having baby and taking care of her, having a job, etc, etc.  Since a new hotel: Courtyard Marriot Hotel  in my city opened (around 5-10 minutes away from my house) couple months ago, it reminded me for this old plan.  I thought if I had a good diploma, I would be confident to apply a job there or other better jobs.
When I read a brochure about information  to get a career diploma at home this afternoon, my heart said "It is the time".  So I searched and learned about several courses information I would be interested to take.  Administrative Assistant/Secretary and Business Management will be two courses I'm going to take.  With very low tuition and fees, even I can save 35% for this time, I'm sure I'll able to afford it.  It will be great opportunity for gaining a new knowledge for a better future.

Now, what's next?  With working 2 jobs right now, I think I'm able to support myself for this course by paying my own tuition.  I don't need to go everywhere to take this school, just stay at home and learn.  How great it is!!!  I'm planning to take first course: Administrative Assistant/Secretary.  One day after I get a new job in this field or if I'm able to continue again, I'll take the second course:  Business Management.  By having these two Diplomas, I'll be much more confident to look for other much better jobs, even they will support me to gain my ability to manage and expose my online business in the writing field and online writing course I lead.

Yes, I work hard and smart by having 2 jobs and soon I'll take a school.  When I'm old I don't need to work hard to make for living.  I really need this because my Bachelor degree from Indonesia isn't worthy here. I have to act soon right now. (*)
