A Little Nervous
Tuesday, June 02, 2009
I’m a little bit nervous today because I start my first night class at college tonight and even though it’s not my first class ever, it’s been a while since I’ve actually matriculated with other students. The last time I physically went to a class was about 2 ½ years ago during my last trimester when I was pregnant with my son and let me tell you I was still probably the oldest person there even though I was only 32 yrs old! It was funny though when the other students kept looking at my belly as it began to pop. I could tell people wanted to say something but were too afraid to ask because maybe they just thought I was getting fat – LOL! Since then, I have only been taking the classes that they offer online, which I love because 1.) I don’t have to leave home and 2.) I can do the work at my own pace.
Hopefully I can keep up with the material but I know it is going to require a lot of studying on my part because it is Anatomy and Physiology II, so a lot of it will be memorization of cell and tissue structure, organs, etc. So starting tonight, I will be giving up 2 nights a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 6 – 10 p.m. Yikes! All the while still working FT and dealing with the terrible two’s that my son is going through (and someone told me the other day that three is worse – Oh, my lord!!!). I’m sure it will all work out fine, just been thinking a lot about the class today and my long term plans. In the end I know this will all be worth it, but it sure is slow progress getting to where I want to be. This also makes me start to think about me trying to lose weight and I know it’s all the same thing. Anything that is really worthwhile doing for you is probably going to take a long time or be a struggle sometimes.
Slow and steady wins the race – that is what they say, but I sure hope they are right!!
