Back to College at 53

with 2 Comments

Back to school at 53I graduated High School in 1982.

Now I am going back to college at 53

I went to college in 1982 and I dropped out for my amazing acting career. Well we all know how that went! I worked but as for being a career…

So here I am at 53.

I am a mom of two, a wife of one and I am about to be a college student again. I am scared. What if I can’t do it? What if I can’t take a test and pass?

What if I never try?

Fall will be one in high school and two in college.

I’m going online. I am already admitted and just need to sign up for my first class. I will also be writing and working on my books and teaching. A busy life but you know I need to try. I need to prove it to myself. I also need to finish before my youngest. I promised myself that.

I will just chip away at the credits I need to graduate and try to not think about how long it will take but instead I will just do what’s next.

I am taking an information technology class and beginning to study for an exam that may place me out of another class. Along with being a wife and mom I will be working for my family business, writing and teaching writing. It seems like a lot but I have had this dream for so long now it is time to start.

I just have to take the first step.

    Go for it! I cheer you on!
    Just finished watching Conagher for the umpteenth time. It is my favorite western. I loved your father’s stories. I’m so glad that you are writing this next chapter of your story. May your college adventure be absolutely epic! I wish you great success.

      You are so sweet. I have just spent the last 5 minutes rereading the same question. I needed your encouragement! Thank you.
