Guess who is going back to college after what feels like FOREVER? Yep – me! Today is my first class and I’m so GEEKED – I’ve already read all the books. So what if the books were mostly picture books – for Children’s Lit & Drama – but hey – I’m beyond excited, okay?
Why am I going back NOW, especially when tuition is so expensive and I have two high schoolers who will be in college soon? Why torture myself with late night studying and homework, projects and all that that entails? Two good reasons: I received a grant and I’m not paying a dime – even for books! Can you believe that? How can I pass that up? Secondly – I love learning and bettering myself — keep my mind active and all that. I’ll have a teaching degree, so that’s cool. Did I mention, it’s a FULL RIDE?
Butterflies in my stomach? Maybe a couple, but mostly I can’t wait! I know there have been a ton of changes since I went to college. Obviously – technology will make things easier – like studying apps – flashcards and such.
Before I go get ready, I HAVE to watch Dodson Study Maybe – a hilarious video by a dedicated and amazing staff. LOVE IT!
I’d love to hear from anyone else who went back to college after so many years. What was your experience? What were your challenges and how did you overcome them? Any tips are welcome!!
