Back to School

No, I'm not talking about the kids going back to school, I'm talking about ME!! While I was complaining to Mike one day about what I was going to do with Kassi in preschool, he mentioned that I should find out what it would take to finish my AA degree at the community college. I was quite skeptical because it had been over 12 yrs. since I took my last course. But I went because, (let's be honest) I had nothing else to do. I was so excited to learn that all the credits I had earned years ago, still counted, except for the computer class (because I'm ancient of course and they didn't even have microsoft when they taught those classes). But I was very relieved to find out that my math class I took straight out of high school (pre-calculus and trigonometry) still counted, because, as I told the advisor, I could never do that again!! So, to make a long story short, I have 43 credits towards my degree and only need 17 more, and 7 of them are electives!! Woo Hoo!! I will take a computer class this semester while Kassi is at preschool, since it is an open-entry, open-exit, which apparently means I can start whenever and finish at my own speed and go to the school whenever I have time. Perfect!! Next school year when Kassi is in full day kindergarten, I will be able to take more classes, but I will still only take a couple at a time. I feel like I have a direction to go in now, not that I know what I will do with my AA degree after I get it, but I will have one.

Hey just to tell your kids that you have a degree it good enough. To also let them know that no matter your age you can still educate yourself is great. I am glad that you are doing something for yourself.
