Getting used to this school thing, is going a little slow, but I am determined to make it. As I sit in my classes I observe the young men and women and some of them seem so determined and others running into class late and asking the question "Did we have any homework" I was like them when I first went to college. Not really realizing the importance of it all.Now that I am attempting to do it again, I wish that I had my head on straight in the first place. It is alot harder this time around, but I am determined to make it. This week I am going to start doing intervies with others who have decided to go back to school late in life. Stay tuned for the interviews and the pictures.

My Sociology teacher helped me to remember just how old I was when he made this statement: "Most of you have not been out of highschool for more than 5 or 6 yrs." I got to counting and it had been 30 yrs. for me. I begin to look around the room and there was a lady laughing and shaking her head, so I was relieved to know that I wasn't alone. After class I spoke with that lady and we began to share our feelings about returning to school at a late time in our life. The main thing she said that stuck with me was "I am determined to do this"
