The talk with Dorothy was the straw that broke the camel's back, so I finally did it. Yes, the thing I've been talking about for a while now. I finally went and signed up for college classes.
I told the admissions person that I was super nervous about being a student again and that I was ultra super nervous about being the oldest student there. She told me there is a fast track program available for working professionals. I can get my degree in 18 months taking a combo of classroom and online courses. The only catch is there is no summer semester off and the classroom stuff is for several hours on a Saturday morning. Financial aid is available, too.
I'm okay with that. At least the other students will be older, too. I would die if I were stuck in a roomful of 18 year olds.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, I did finally decide on graphic design. I just hope I actually have design skills. Hum, this could be disastrous.
