Now do not get overly excited, this has nothing to do with a remake to the Rodney Dangerfield movie. What is does concern is me going back to school this coming Fall.
I am both excited and nervous about this adventure. It has been 18 years since I graduated High School and I am finally working towards my higher education. I am hoping it all works out well so that I can finally start a career where I can fully provide for my family and something that I will find satisfaction in doing.
The degree program that I am working towards is Elementary Education. I have always enjoyed helping and instructing people and I feel that this will be a good field for me. Additionally, I have bitched for a long time about the state of our education system and it only seems right that it is “put up or shut up time.”
This will be quite the adventure for me as now that I am 36 the value of education is a lot more important to me than it was when I was 18. I have always been an intelligent person but during high school I had a huge case of the “I don’t give a shits.” I had a low GPA upon leaving high school, however all of me teachers knew of my full potential and talked with me endlessly about it.
I am very happy about the choice I have made in deciding to go back to school. It will be trying as I will also be working while going to school, but I know that with the support of my family I will be able to make it through all of the struggles.
