So, I did receive an email from the continuing education department this morning letting me know that I could continue under the requirements that were in place in May and all I have to do is let them know when I have completed my last three courses to receive my certificate. I love how the tone of the email makes it sound like they are making an exception for me. Honestly, it is in their best interests because the amount of hell I would have raised would not have been worth their trying to make me adhere to the new requirements.
Generally, I’m fairly adverse to confrontation and tend to put up with an incredible amount of bs to keep the peace, but there are times when I take a stand and this would have been one of them. Just ask my mother and my husband about my stubborn streak and the genetic source of it. Those who marry members of my paternal line are blessed with tremendous patience and the flexible strength of willow trees to live with us. We may be the true immovable object when we set our minds to it.
So, I wasn’t terribly worried about the outcome of the situation. One way or another it would be resolved to my satisfaction. I just didn’t relish the amount of time I would have had to spend attempting to get it settled.
