I have talked to so many people lately who are either thinking about going back to school or who are newly back in school. I think it must be the economy (see?? I told you so!!). My little brother and my little sister's husband are also nontrads, so it runs in the family. :)
One guy I talked to said he was encouraged by my return to school and that it gave him renewed enthusiasm to pursue his goal of returning to school. That's what the blogs, the forums, the connections are all about - encouraging one another. I want to take this opportunity to thank Deb and Elizabeth who are relentless in their pursuit of information, encouragement, and high fives for all the other nontrads. Two big "Atta Girls!" for you, ladies! Thank you so much for your dedication!
Whether we are online or on campus, we all face the same fear, "Can I do this? Should I really be doing this?" Yes and yes. I figure I birthed three children, moved halfway across the country to follow my husband for a job, and homeschooled for seven years. Getting my degree ought to be a walk in the park, yes? Sort of. At least I'm done with my Math requirement - thank God! Did I ever mention I am not a Math person?
Finals start in a week. To be, yes. Definitely, to be. Stay tuned . . . .
