A Clean Slate
Funny how I can relate to that cartoon scene. Don’t we all wish that we can always start with a clean slate? To restart all fresh and new sounds very exciting doesn’t it? Today, is that day for me! I have finally enrolled in school again. And this time around, I have bigger and better inspirations to guide me through.
I unfortunately didn’t take college so seriously back then. It has been since 1991 that I winged every course that I surprisingly passed through. When I graduated high school in 1987 (yes, I am that old! Yikes!), going to college was not an option. I went and did all of it, but my head was truly not in the right place. I was more concerned about the whole social part of it than the actual classes. Sad, because that’s my only memory of college then – Which party to go to? Whose party to go to? When is the weekend coming? What?!- there’s an exam today? Uurgh…
Fast-forward ….not looking back (so don’t ask me about the past so I don’t gag anymore) but definitely learning from it, I am back at it again. I know this will be tough and it will be for the next few years. But now with my head screwed on correctly, with 3 kids and a husband routing for me, I am reaching for the skies and no less…What would you wish to redo if you are given the chance to do correctly all over again?

maybe I'll look into night classes next year, like 2 a week or something. it may be best to just start small. I admire you for taking the jump!!
BTW - can't say I'd do anything over, I would never learn what I did wrong! :)
Totally sending you positive school vibes!
I do not want any redo-s I really just want to be right here right now.
The future ... well I hope to get home soon :)
re-do? hmmmmm.........probably high school...maybe not be so shy and quiet and be totally obnoxious like I am now! ;)
I breezed through college (not a good breezed-through-with-good grades but a bad didn't-pay-attention-graduated-by-the-skin-of-my-teeth) and wish I would have thought more seriously about my future. I'm grateful for the job I have now. It is what I had hoped to do...but there was always this nagging voice deep down and I now wish I had listened!
Wish you luck MJ with your school. All the best,
It was a landslide. A landslide loss for me, that is.
Have a great weekend.
