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!!

    Hey, we're the same age!
    I know a lady who graduated with her PHD in clinical psychology about 30 years ago. When she complained to a very sage friend of hers that she would be 52 by the time she received her degree, his answer was that she would be 52 anyway. This comment really struck a chord with me and I think of it when I start to loose momentum toward my goals.
    Good luck with everything!

    Good luck with your classes, I am taking two extremely hard classes right now for my MBA and just finished the outline for one of my research papers last night. It is harder with a baby and a full time job but I just keep imagining the benefits in the end and it gives me the energy and focus to keep going. I have one more class until I finish my MBA and will be completing that class this summer. I am so excited I don't know what to do! You will be great and do great and it is good to see you still striving to better yourself.
