First Day of School! First Day of School!

There's been a lot going on lately, least of which has been preparing to come back to school. It feels more surreal this semester than any other. It's my first semester being married, already having an apartment, and no new school clothes. Quite plainly...I feel too old. Of course I know this is just a personal mental block. Today a 19-year-old girl in my Spanish class told me I didn't look old enough to be 27. And I kept thinking, "I had my first degree before you were half way through high school." But such is the way of life. I wouldn't trade any of my experiences or time for anything else. Bring on the learning!

  1. I feel old too! It has been hard for me working at DQ with all the new college freshies. I feel like I should be done with school and moved on to the next phase of my life. I too have had the same mental block as you. When I start to think it though and get over the anxiety, I realize that I am in school now because I didn't have the maturity level I do now. I was not ready for school at 19. I am now and I am going to rock this semester. I am always here for you if you need anything. Keep up all of your amazing work!!!!
