The NonTraditional

Its such a weird feeling starting College AGAIN!!! In fact, you can so tell I am the nontraditional student. When I tried the college thing right outta highschool I didn't get much accomplished. I joined a soroity(which was great) but I spent more time socializing and partying then I did doing homework or class. I was in it for all the wrong reasons. So when a great full time job came available I jumped at the oppurtunity and here I am today. I have been at my current job for the past 3 years. I actually love my job, not stressful, the pay is great and the people in this office are great. I have made some best friends here and we all usually come and go as we please. Why go back to school then you are asking......because I have a job and not a career like I want. I want more than just an office job from 8-5....I want to teach. I have always wanted to teach for as long as I can remember. I get a great passion out of the kids and honestly I think I am pretty good because the kids always loved me :)

So as I take this journey of school once again I notice I am in the old woman in the front row that I always hated in my classes. I listen to everything the teacher says, I turn stuff in early, I want to be the first to present my projects, I email the teacher constantly with questions, YEP I am that non trad student but I love it. I can't wait to finally get this goal accomplished in my life. I can't wait to teach and be done with school. I want those great teachers hours and all the holidays too.

So, if there are gaps in my blogs or I am a little absent here its because I am doing homework or projects. Also...I am almost a junior in hours but I still have around 3 years to go b/c remember I am still working full time (for the time being and insurance) and going to school in the evenings. Wish me luck...and set your mind to something and do it!

Good luck with your classes! I think it is great that you are going back to school! Although I doubt you look like the old woman in the front row. I'm sure you just blend in!

Somehow your blog stopped updating on my google reader - I've removed and readded and hope it works, but now I've got some catching up to do! Good luck with school - I think I'd appreciate my classes now after some real life experience than I did when I was just looking forward to the fraternity party the upcoming weekend.

You will be so relieved when you sit back and have that degree. I think it's great you are finishing. Excellent. :)
