Please don't view this post as a "please feel sorry for me" type thing because it isn't. I almost wish it was. I just have no feeling whatsoever and need to spill my guts here. I have ONE course left at Aspen for my Masters. One. Uno. I have not enrolled in it yet because I am very nerve wracked and ready to just walk away from it. Here's why: 1 - The final exam Before I enrolled, I emailed the president at the time, Jerry Alley, and asked if I could take the final exam locally in a high school's library if those librarians said they would proctor the exam. He said he was sure they could work that out. Of course, he was TWO presidents ago, so I'm filled with anxiety about that issue. The two testing centers in my area are either in a bad area or not accessible to me with my insane work schedule. 2 - The Capstone I have no idea what to do. The advice that I've been given online and elsewhere is to find something I'm passionate about and study it. Well, I'm not passionate about anything. I did the coursework, threw myself into it, absorbed it and completed what I have so far because I had to. There was no "OMG I LOVE this course" stuff going on there. It was just "Okay, next..." I have many projects to do at my job that might be suitable for the Capstone but there is no guidance whatsoever on this anywhere. It's as if I have to write a paper on something and that's that. I don't know if you can document your progress through a large technology project and have that be okay. If it's a written paper on a subject that I'm passionate about then I'm in real trouble here. If I just stopped now, and walked away from the whole thing I just wouldn't care. I can't figure out where this is coming from but it's there and it's driving me insane.
