It's official....

I am a student!
I decided to finally go to school, I will start the summer semester in June~ (I am not sure I can really say I'm going "back" to school since I have only taken 3 classes in the 20 years that I have been out of High School).
It may be one or two classes at a time, but I have nothing to lose and education to gain.
I work full time so I will only be taking a couple of classes in the evening, but for some reason I am so excited!
I don't know why it has taken me so long to catch this bug but I am ready to try!
The past few years when I go on "walk and talks" with my step dad, he always brings up going to college and for some reason it has always made me frustrated and I get emotional and defensive. But the last time we went, and he brought it up again, it clicked!
Finally! :)
I figured....why not!
If other people believe in me ~ I can believe in myself too!
Math is my biggest fear and probably the main reason I have never gone. If anyone has any tips in getting through the math portion please let me know! I am not going to try and tackle a math class yet, but I know someday I will have to!
I also have no idea what to major in ~ or what I want to be when I grow up!:)
What have you gone to school for? What career path did it help with? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!


  1. I think it is great that you are going to give school a try. When you get ready to tackle those math courses I have some websites that will help you immensely. But I won't give out those sites just yet only until you are ready. While in school my biggest fear has always been chemistry and I have managed to well in that course. Since it is the subject I have the most trouble with I had to allot time for that course. Sometimes I would spend 5 hours a day just trying to understand the reactions and mechanisms. Now I am done taking chemistry courses and I am so glad I don't have to worry about it anymore. I can say good bye to 2 years of chemistry.

    The first 2 years of college you will be taking general courses and based on the classes you take you will get a better idea of what courses interest you. If you find yourself taking a lot of courses in a particular area then maybe you should consider majoring in something you enjoy.

  2. Really cool! I took one college course so I am really of no help whatsoever. lol. But totally supportive!! xoxo

  3. Good for you! Anything you do will be great. Just take a few classes first and see what you like. You don't have to decide right away. I'm impressed!!

  4. Awesome! I am looking at going back to take some culinary classes. Photography? Business? The sky is the limit. :)

  5. My husband took 10 years to do his degree and when he was done I threw the best backyard party I could. What mattered was his journey, his efforts, and dedication. Same I say to you... one semester at a time until you are done. I know you can do it. You already took the first step :>
