You Know You're Getting Old When....

straightareportcardYou know you're getting old when...you get straight A's on your first semester back! Oh yeah so take that youngsters! I was quite nervous about going back to college after a 16 year hiatus. How well would I do? Would I be able to juggle school work and a family? It was easier at 19 when my only responsibility was college and work. Now I wasn't so sure with school work, a husband, a 10 year old son, and running our household. My husband and family has been so supportive. I have great friends who also pitched in when I needed it. I have to thank them so much for all the support and encouragement. Enough mushy talk and back to bragging.

I am thrilled to finish my first semester of school with a 4.0! I took 5 classes and all A's. All my classes were required courses for my Associate Degree. Next semester I need 4 classes which are all electives. I graduate in May! I am halfway to my goal of receiving that college degree. I have talked about going back to finish school for many years. To be this close to finishing this goal is surreal. I will say you are NEVER too old to accomplish any goal you set. If you want it enough, then you will reach it.
