It is official, I got an email from the local community college and have been excepted. I will be getting the official paperwork in the mail in about 10-15 days. Now I have a list of things that I have to get done, including talking to the financial aid office to see if I qualify for any thing, Fingers crossed that I do as any money that I can save would be great, especial since hours are not very plentiful at work so my income is quite limited at the moment. And it would be nice to not have to take out a whole bunch of loans. And I also have to schedule a placement test, but I am hoping to hold off on that one a little bit to give me time to practice my math skills as they are very rusty since I have not used much but very basic math in my daily life for the last 9 years.
I am hoping to be able to register for spring quarter, and start taking classes then. Nervous as it has been a long time since I have been in school and have been trying to learn lots of new things, and that is going to be a bit of a challenge but one that I know that I can take head one. My plan is to do school online as work is really not willing to let availability be limited and I need the hours for insurance, and to help pay for going back to school. My plan is to take on class first quarter so that I can see what it is like and get in the swing of learning again and rearrange my daily routine fit school into it Then the fallowing quarter I want to ratchet it up to full time. I am excited about going back to school and learning new things and starting a new chapter in my life. My future looks brighter then I has in quite a while. I am on the path to hopefully getting a better job, one that pays better, where I will actually have the ability to start a family and be able to support it, and build a better future for me, where I am much more secure in my income too. I can't wait for this new chapter in my life to start and start on the path to a new life, and one where I can have the confidence of having gone to college and having such an education, where I can be among groups of people and not have them look down on me as being uneducated and thus bellow them. I think the last part will be one of the best parts out of it all.
