Not mine but for my over-achiever [I think] nephew. I just saw a picture of his graduation in FB. This time he graduated with a masters degree in Special Education. Last year he graduated with a medical degree. Earlier this year he got his medical license when he passed the board. I knew he was simultaneously going to medical school and earning another degree in Special Education. I just didn't know that he'd finish the 2 this closely. I actually thought he would not pursue a medical degree anymore because after finishing his bs degree, he went to work as a guidance counselor which gave him the chance to work with kids with special needs. At that time he told me how much he likes helping/teaching/interacting with these kids and that he was thinking of going back to school for a special ed degree. Well, he did the unthinkable and enrolled in med school...then enrolled to take some units for an MA in special ed. I guess he just couldn't disappoint his father who was the one that wanted him to become a doctor eversince he was born.
