I’ve registered for my last 3 classes for the Fall session, in my certificate program! Wow.. hard to believe….. Dec 17 will be either a day of celebration or a major ‘sleep in’!
Feeling proud of myself for first trying ‘a’ course, then going full tilt. It’s been hard at times, working full time and taking courses at night when your over 50.
So many questions, and worries: Can I do this? Will this get me a good job? Am I too old to be doing this? Why did I do this to myself?? (taking 2 courses at one time is not wise – at least for me)
Good grades, and a lot of hard work (for me, as my brain shuts down about 9pm! when I need to be up by 5 or 5:30) but determined to get this certificate..
Eye on the prize! :) 4 months ago
It’s in my head and heart I just have to take the necessary steps 6 months ago
I attended college for two semesters straight out of high school. In high school I was a high honors student and completed my courses a year early, so in college I decided to take as many classes as I could to do the same. What a terrible idea! No one told me what college was really like and I burnt myself out pretty quickly. I was failing. ME…FAILING! So, I decided to take time off and find a job until I was ready to go back and try again. Well, one year turned into two, two into four, dead end job after dead end job. Now, it’s been eight years! I still don’t know what I want to do for the rest of my life, but whatever it is, I know it needs to be dedicated to helping others. Perhaps Anthropology? We will see… 6 months ago
I registered to take a class this summer. I made up my mind and just did it. It’s a general class I would need. I have the tuition covered and it’s online so I wouldn’t have to worry about getting time off work for class. It’s just one class, but it’s a step I’m ready to take. 7 months ago
is all registered!
It isn’t that much longer, (ok not till Fall!) that this program is done!
I’m pretty sure I’ll bedoing another certificate program right after! (if I don’t run out of $$$’s first) 7 months ago
How I did it: I took everything one step at a time and found everything came quickly together that way. Once I received an approval for some financial assistance I was starting up school this Spring! Read how I did it… 7 months ago
