Back to school

In 2001 I went back to school after almost 20 years. I'd love to hear from anyone who has done the same. Slowly, I am working toward a BA in English and maybe a BA in Anthropology. I'm going slowly, because I want to enjoy the classes... well, maybe not the math classes. Yuck!

How about you?

Back to school

I started back to school in 1993/1994 on a one or two class a semester basis (had originally started in 1976 after graduating high school). I received my associate degree in 1998 - just a month before my 40th birthday. I enjoyed school so much more as an older student! Even the math classes surprised me - I understood the subject matter! I took two developmental classes before taking on College Algebra - not only passed each and every one of them, but made A's. Having the math refresher courses also had an additonal bonus - I was able to help my kids with their homework. The last class I took was in Fall 1998 - we moved into a new house in Feb 1999; daughter was in a car wreck on Mother's Day, 1999 and eldest ds was in the er the same day - eventually diagnosed with a hiatial hernia; found out I had stage 1 uterine cancer in June, TAH in July - and then the kids started going to college in Fall 1999 - eldest graduated in Dec 2002, dd will graduate in Dec 2005, #2 ds in May 2007 and #3 ds in May May 2011 (he is currently a jr in high school). I plan to start back again either in Jan 2005 or August 2005 - just one or two classes a semester (again). I am at the point in my life that I know I want to do something else - just not sure what.

online classes

More and more schools are providing online classes. They aren't easier... lots more reading. What's great about them is you don't have to drive to school after work, fight for parking, and be in class by a certain time. THAT is what's exhausing to me. Decide what classes you still need and check to see if the schools have what you need online. These classes really are great!
