Because I didn't think my life was full enough I decided to go back to school. Yup. I've thought about it a million times. When I originally started at my local junior college my goal was to be a teacher. I wanted to focus on English and perhaps teach high school or college. Through the years I have changed my mind a million times and ended up right back where I started...teaching. The only difference being I'd like to teach the younger kiddos, elementary age.
My plan was that perhaps I could get this all done by the time Leyton is 5-6 years old and be on the same schedule that he is on. While that still "might" be a possibility...I have a feeling he might be a little older. I have 10 classes left to take to transfer to Sac State. I'll chip one of them off this semester, and thankfully it's a quick class so it will run from the end of August to the end of October. Next semester I'll take a heavier load, but keep it all classes I can do in the evening, leaving the day classes for last.
Once I get to Sac State I have no idea what happens. Probably another 3.5 years of that. GULP.
While it all seems daunting I must say at the same time it is exciting. I really always loved being a student and there is no reason I shouldn't have finished sooner other than life got in the way. The thought of going now as an adult is almost more appealing because I appreciate it more. I'm excited for all the history classes I have to take. Not so excited about the math and biology.
Wish me luck, class starts on August 25th...but as of now I'm on the waiting list!
