Well…..that’s it. There’s no turning back now
Why go back now, you ask? Honestly, this isn’t a ‘new’ situation for me!
Don’t think I’m bragging, but school has never been a problem for me. I’ve always had above average marks, but for some reason after high school I lost my way. I tried community college and hated it, so I worked full time. By age 28, I had enough of that.
I took a huge step out of my ‘box’ and joined the military. I won’t get into the stories now but I made it through four years (think Private Benjamin). I emerged a stronger, more focused ADULT. My parting gift from the military was a four year education, for which I am forever grateful! Graduation was a defining moment for me!
So why am I taking you back to my glory days? Well, going back to school at 31 years old was NOT easy-especially when you are living on campus! There are more stories, laughter, tears, and memories than I can count.
My point is….I pressed on then, and I’ll press on NOW-and most likely enjoy every minute of it!
As I look at my receipt from Ryerson, I am reminded of this same moment several years back….when I was looking at my invoice from the University at Buffalo.
It’s a new page, and a new chapter for me-and I can’t wait! Project Management, here I come!
p.s. Do I use too many …..?
