Resuming Pace: I Shall Not Be Pursuing a Second Bachelor's Degree

On May the 5th, 2021, I used a strong position deciding my pursuit of a second Bachelor’s degree: my choice was the University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC, link ), but I decided to resume my Master’s program, by itself.  Let me explain with Scripture: the Gospel of Jesus Christ According to Matthew, specifically.

When Dennett read Robinson Crusoe, he loved technology. Dennett loved technology so much: Dennett claimed technology is good; Dennett did not rationalize his devotions. Dennett stated we control technology unlike magic. Dennett claimed that technology that exists: is true. Dennett claimed his technology is convenient, for its blessings: his technology group has received provisions. Put an end to Tradition Against troubling technology traits, Dennett gave a proposition. Dennett claimed: his peers should leave tradition behind, or else information technology can ruin his peers' and his lives. Dennett believed we all want our lives good. Dennett stated: we want lead lives interesting. Also, Dennett stated we want lead lives good. Dennett described these things useful and a right difference. Nex
