I had this professor once--back in college--who taught an honors seminar on Eastern Philosophies or something like that. I loved this guy--he claimed to have inadvertently gotten something stupid like 11 bachelor's degrees, 3 master's and one doctorate degree along his path of taking classes that looked interesting.
Since he told us that, I decided I want to do it, too. --Just take classes on and off throughout life, accidentally accumulating degrees. Why not?
So I work for Verizon Wireless nowadays [we never stop working for you], and I've decided to take advantage of their tuition assistance program. I'm enrolling at Tulane University* in the fall, here in New Orleans, and am going to take a couple of linguistics classes each semester. Why not?
Check out a rough listing of Tulane's linguistics courses here.
I'm soooo excited! I can't wait! I've never taken an official linguistics class before.**
*My alterior motive is to join their quizbowl team and finagle NAQT into having the ICT in New Orleans again next year.
**Of course I'm not forgetting Dr. Hall's Studies of the English Language (aka "Slang") class I took back in 2003 at LSMSA. He's what got me started in all this in the first place!
