I just spent the past hour and a half requesting my transcripts to be sent from my previous schools (HS + 4 Colleges). Can you believe that I've been to FOUR different colleges (2 Community Colleges and 2 Universities) and I've still never finished a Simple-Two-Year-Degree!?
It's been one of the biggest nagging things in my life. When I met Tom this was one of the first things he knew about me. He told me that I could go back to school after our children were weaned... which happened right before we moved to Wyoming. Then to wait for residency, and then life.
In any case, as of today, all the forms are filled out, checks written and letters mailed.
As I was going to the different sites and writing letters, I felt much more prepared to deal with the inevitable bureaucracies and forms and such that accompany school. I also know how to ask questions and make phone calls. Of course, I could do that before, but now I feel better prepared to follow through and make a degree happen.
I've been more motivated by the local college campus than any of the others I've ever been near... I can even see the school (and I think it's a nice looking building) out my back windows. I think that (plus all my local friends who've recently started back to school) will set me up for success! :D
