to tell the truth, I haven't been on the scale for something like 2 weeks... I'm almost afraid to get on it!
. I have been busy. I have been preocupied. But I am well.
Saturday I had to go to the university to take some assessment tests in math and science. Everyone had to. It was to make sure we remembered enough to follow our courses. It was only to determine if we needed refresher courses.
So Saturday I went, for the first time to the school I will attend in the fall. It felt wierd. I got there 1 hour in advance. So I had time to take it in. I got my paper that would grant me access to the exam, took the picture for the student card and bought a membership to the University's coop. I also had time to observe the other students.
It is very exciting to be going back to school. It will be soo different. The average age of the student is as it should be : around 20-22 yrs old. 90% of them male. Engineering is still not favored by women. It is going to be a very stimulating environment!
I took 2 classes so it means that 4 nights a week, after work, I will be going to school. I finish at 4. the school is about 20 minutes away from work on foot. and I start class at 6. That gives me 1h and a half to eat and maybe use the sports facilities. Maybe I could even join some intra-mural sports. Badminton maybe or even get back to volleyball... we'll see what is offered in the fall.
It is amazing how things can change in a few years. 2 years ago, in May I was learning that I had something in my breast. In august, it will be 2 years since the lumpectomy. In November It will be 2 years since the start of radiation therapy and 1 year since my wedding. And now I am going back to school.... I guess turning 50 changes things...
Now I'm thinking I really have to get in shape if I want to be able to follow the kids I'll go to school with!
Oh, I forgot. I looked on my file on the university's site and apparently I did pass the 2 tests!!! Not bad for an old bag!
I do remember enough of my math, physics and chemestry to start my bachelor's degree! We'll see how it goes in the fall...
