Happy First Day of Fall!!!

Yea! Fall is here – the weather is cooling off and it’s lovely! Can’t wait for the colors to start changing.

I know I’ve been ridiculously scarce. I’ve just been so busy that when I’m not busy I just want to sit around and RELAX for a minute. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to do it all. I’ve given up TV completely to try and make more time but it doesn’t really seem to be working. I usually give up TV during the summer anyway – but the fall TV season is starting and I want to watch my shows… it’s hard to give it up but I just don’t have the time.

Where’s all my time going?? Well – I’ve decided I need go back to school & finish my edjamakaton. Not going to college after high school was a good decision for me at the time. I wasn’t ready then. I went back about 5 years after graduation and did really well, but I tried to work full time and go to school full time and after a year of that I burned out. Too much at once, I needed a break. One semester off turned to two ….

So now its ten years later and I’m going back, and.… OMG what the devil was I thinking?!?!? This is hard. I don’t think my brain works anymore. I had a quiz last week – I panicked over the first question. Spent way too much time trying to figure out the answer & probably bombed the rest of the test. It’s been ten years since I had to take a test. I must be nuts. I don’t knit, I barely read, I do math problems till my eyes cross. I keep trying to tell myself, it’ll calm down once I get used to my new schedule, you don’t have to give up your fun stuff forever, you’ll get the rhythm of it soon. How long do you suppose that will take, cuz dam I miss my fun stuff!!!

I know it can be hard to go to school after a while of being away but you'll get the hang of it all I'm sure of it. Then you have all the fun stuff back. Good luck with schoool and Happy Fall to you too.
Good on you! You'll revive all those dormant study skills very quickly, I'm sure.

What is your major?
My husband went back after 15 years to finish a degree and has never regretted it. It was HARD. I think your brain will get back into the groove and you'll be so glad you did it.
