A 30 year old student is not something you think of when you think of college but in reality that is normal now a days.
My situation is that i never thought i could or would go to school, it seemed like an option only for people with money. The things i saw others do seemed so far away from my grasp. I was 16 when i dropped out and got my G.E.D, alot of people do not even get that. I started my family at 16, with a man 6 years older than me.
I never thought i would be more than at home and i am so proud that i found something that truly calls me. My kids see how dedicated i am to it and only thing i hate is that it truly is a juggling act. 7 kids and 3 in diapers yet i still take four classes full time and hold part time job.
I like many other people have trouble with Math. Math is what held me back. The major i am in now is arts major so my math change to contemporary math but i cant say it wasnt any easier for me. I this semester finished the last mandatory math i needed and am now free to just study audio.
The sigh of relief was one of years of worry. I can actually see a career now and my future. One were i can earn a livable wage and enjoy what i do. Am i selfish for wanting more than a job?
I know now it hard to for my kids because they do not get my undivided attention but i know it will pay off in the end for all of us.
Im ready for my future to be more than a mother, spouse,cook,nurse and caregiver. I want more purpose. I love and enjoy every second of motherhood but that does not mean its all sunshine. Its hard work but i know will something i can look forward to everyday that would alot help give my kids that extra is all i have ever wanted.
Are you considering a change in life? Do you struggle with meaning in you existence? What is keeping you from pursuing more? These are all things i also had to question myself for years before i actually took action. Lets be students together , if you choose to also make a journey similar share it with me i would love to hear your progress and bask in your success
