College Dreams


I had a weird dream last night...


I was late for one class and realized that I had been not been going to a class for most of the semester AND that there was no way I could catch up on my homework.  
AHHH!  (like the Home Alone slap after the aftershave...)

Strange - I used to have dreams like that all the time - even after I graduated from college.

See, I start a class this month at the local community college, Design 1.
I am SUPER excited, but came to realize after my dream, also very nervous.
Hubby took the day off work today and we went to pay my tuition, get my student ID and parking pass and find my classroom.
We saw a group of students being led in what looked like an orientation group and I said something to hubby about me being like twice their age - and he observed that I could be their Mom.
WOW!
It's weird to get older on the outside and feel your same goofy self on the inside.

I peeked in the window of the classroom and was exited to see it is like a studio.
I will let you know how my first day goes (about two weeks from now).
Hopefully in this case my dreams won't come true :)

Congratulations! I hope to go back to school someday. I did go back once and yes, I was way older than the other students, but I actually liked it more than when I had all the social/peer pressure the first time around!

Wow. It took me forever to find the button to comment :).

I have dreams occasionally that I am back at college, too. The nightmare part of mine usually involves roommates and me thinking, "But I'm MARRIED!"

I am so happy for you to go back and learn something new and study what you like! You are going to do great!
