Today was my first day as a college freshman. I will be 30 years old next month. I decided to go to college because of a new program at ULL in Lafayette, LA where I currently live. Before that, there really wasn't anything I was interested in going for. I am currently a successful real estate agent, with no college education so I never had the need nor desire to attend school. BUT, as you know life throws us curveballs and when I learned of MIA, I made a split decisiion to go to college.
It's all very exciting. In retrospect, if I would have gone straight out of highschool, I probably wouldn't have done myself any good. I was a little wild back then. I definitely did the whole 'college partying' thing without actually being in college. Now I'm focused and really into my classes, learning and doing well. So I guess it worked out for the best.
This morning I popped in an old CD ('member those?). It belongs to a friend of mine who would frequently go out with me (she was actually in college at the time). So it brought me back to that time in my life. Remembering that time makes me realize how far I've come and how much I've changed.
I'm really not into all the walking I need to do from class to class in this oppressive heat but it's gotta be good for my health right? I'm pretty sure the two professors I met today are younger than me. I met up with one of my kid's babysitters even. My age doesn't bother me one bit though.
Right now, I am going to attempt to go back to the bookstore and get the books I need.
