My feelings today are hard to describe--exhiliarated, terrified, and hopeful are only some of the words I would use.
I met for the first time this morning with my student advisor, and made up the list of the courses I will need to finish my Bachelor's degree. The last time I was in school was...1974?? I got married young and never completed my studies. Got busy with babies and other things, never had the time or the money, had to work full-time, and Life just took over. I don't think things are any less busy now, but my little Inner Voice is telling me that now is the time.
I am going to try to carve out a little space in my life for my studies, and try to DO THIS. At my age (55), it is a very scary and intimidating prospect indeed. I worry that the old brain doesn't work quite as well as it did 35 years ago. But I feel that I have to try.
If you have done this, of know of someone who did, I would appreciate any words of advice and wisdom you have to offer.
I'm a College Girl now. (can't see through the tears)
