Back in school...maybe this time I can finish
After 20 years, I've decided to go back to college. Absolutely incredible the difference from who I was then to who I've become. In the last 20 yeers, I've taken several Continuing Education Courses for work or personal interest but this time, I'm serious about it. I'm loving every minute of it. It's taking a giant chunk of "my time" but I know it will be worth it in the end.
I decided to go back because things at work are getting scary. I work in the housing market industry & the market is not doing too well. I made it through 2 rounds of layoffs. I don't want to be next. I want to have a "Plan B".
So, I've made a new friend. A 20 year old who is in most of my classes. For some strange reason he has decided to be my friend. It's kinda tough to make friends with teens & 20-some year olds at 40.
He's a nice kid. He's bit of an eccentric. I see so much of the old me in him. Maybe that's why we hit it off so well. I see him making the same mistakes I made back then & I wish I could show him the right way, but, I can't. These are life lessons he must learn.
Anyway, it's been a blast, so far, seeing things, once again, through young eyes.
I miss that...being young & carefree. Life has a way of making thing tarnished or tainted.
Just wanted to share my wonderful experience & maybe bring back some great memories for y'all. Remind you how wonderful life can be if you look at it from the right angle. (No, I'm not taking geometry.) ;P
