Almost Done

I have my last class for the semester tonight.

Whew.

It's tough going back to school when you're old and those brain cells don't fire quite as fast as they used to! I have spent the last several days finishing up a final project and I have one more final paper to complete and turn in by Thursday. And THEN I can say I will be done for this semester.

However, I really enjoy school. I like to learn, and I love the interaction with fellow students and the professors. I love the environment of a college campus. I really liked my sociology class this semester and I got a lot out of that.

I am thinking I really missed my calling. I should have been a college professor. I could have taught history or something. But early on I was rammed into these ideas of what I should be and who I should be, and I think I've fought against them all my life. I missed opening a few doors, too.

Classes will begin for the summer on June 20. I've already signed up and even have my books here on the desk. How's that for being an eager student, eh?

  1. You can still teach college. I became a part-time college English instructor when I was 54.

  2. So proud of you. I think I need to go back to school someday. You have inspired me. I also think I want to be a professor. What are you going to teach?

  3. I didn't know you were going back to school. That seems like a good plan for you.
