I have decided to go back to school and actually get a college degree, my course of study, Associates in Applied Science in Digital Arts with an emphasis in Digital Photography- what a mouth full. When I was a young pup I thought I was totally cool and did not need to finish high school or waste my precious time learning so I dropped out. And now, eleven years later, I completely regret ever making that decision, if I knew then what I know now, I would have chosen a different group of kids to be a part of and would have stuck through it until the end, I would have been able to walk with my class of Y2K and would have made history. How many people can say they graduated the start of a new millennium? 😀 Although I did get my GED in 2001, its just not the same not being able to walk the platform with my cap and gown. My life lesson… don’t drop out of school, always do your best even if you may think things are getting to hard and do not be too proud to seek help with you school work.

So now with all my guilt, four kids later and a husband I am making the plunge. I know going back to school will be tough, needing to take care of a home, doing homework with 3 kids as well as working my own, not including my husband is also going to school. We are busy, busy, busy! At the rate I am going I will complete my associates in about, umm… five years, yes, I did say FIVE! Seems like forever!

I created this page to keep you updated and share my college experiences with you, my likes, dislikes, troubles, new knowledge and enjoyments. So stick around, this will be a looong journey, but so totally worth it!
