Kim, I'm the same with my colored hair! Those pictures you saw are what I'm trying to get back too. It was only about 7 years ago (only??) LOL I do have a double chin now.
Today in Math class, I noticed that no one but me was taking notes. and then I realized they had just gotten out of the same math and knew it already. I asked a question and the whole dang class leaned forward to see who was so stupid! then I heard the girl behind me say "bless her heart" like I had been born with a learning disability! OMG! LOL

Mary, I looked at your page/pictures and I have to say you look pretty darn good for your age. Of course, a lot of people think I am younger than I am, but maybe if they saw me without color-treated hair they would think twice.

I also looked into studying P.T. once, but ended up getting a business degree (BS in Management of Health Services) thinking it would help me in my insurance career. It didn't work out that way as I left it 9 yrs ago. Time for a change and I needed something else to do in my life, so Env. Sci. started out as a hobby to me. I actually have enjoyed going back to school after all these years. LOL, I already had a hip replacement 5 yrs ago, so I know all about P.T!!

Well, Kim, we have a lot in common! I got laid off and looked and looked for a job. No dice. So I decided to apply for a pell grant to go to college and become a physical therapist. The reason I chose that one is that I have always wanted to go into Health care, but I can't stand vomit, etc etc., bodily fluids. It just makes me sick! Besides, I think I will be much more compassionate to my patients and I am of the same age as most of them. I researched this position and it is going to explode with the baby boomers getting knee replacements and all kinds of other surgeries.

AND, I'm in the same boat as you. I am 57 and will be almost 60 when I graduate. I care not!

LOL!! I keep asking that myself. I am currently unemployed and not had any offers yet. I feel like I am not qualified to do anything anymore. I am studying Environmental Science. I would like to work with wildlife or possibly conservation of lands for wildlife or wetlands. It is going to be a while before I graduate and I will probably be close to 50, if not older by the time I do.

Me too! I started school at the University this week. I have one class on campus and one online. Now I just have to NOT stop at the Sonic on the way home near the campus. They have such good ice cream for $1!!
