Never to late!!!
Those of you who know me, know that I am back in school. I will be 30 (don't worry, I'm not sad about it) in June. The odd thing is that the college students who are fresh out of high school use to outnumber those of us who
were stupidput off school but now that the economy pretty much sucks, the older crowd outnumbers the fresh out of high school crowd. In fact, in one of my classes during summer quarter I'm pretty sure I was one of the youngest people in the class at age 29! Things are different than the first time I tried this college thing. I worked as a waitress 11 years ago, made a WHOLE LOT of tip money and didn't realize I would one day want to be more and lets not forget I was only responsible for myself. Now I am a stay-at-home mommy with two young ones who are very loud at the exact times I need them to be quiet. I have a husband whom I am pretty sure is the most neglected of all things in my life. I have a house that sometimes gets cleaned, food to heat up cook and so many other things on that to do list. There have been many times over the past year that I have almost given up and lost my desire for higher education. But I have pushed through and continue to do so...I am proud to tell you that after taking my final on Tuesday, I will have completed my first full year of college! Not a moment to soon I might add. Needless to say, I still have a long way to go but my husband always says "if you don't go to school what will you be doing in five years." Ummm...can we say dead end job?? Anyways, I will probably be in school for another three years if all goes as planned and those three years are going to come whether I go to school or get a job. But for the time being, I totally plan to enjoy my two weeks off by cleaning my house and selling my kids old clothes on ebay...I know, that is some hardcore celebrating!
