Online Education

I always dreamed of going to school and getting a degree in something I?d love to do. I had plenty of dreams, and I wanted to pursue them. With working most of your life, going to school would have to be a very big sacrifice, especially if you have a husband or children to handle. I could have entered school when I was younger, but the demands of working, marriage, and children took precedent over my life. Also, there?s no energy left after you deal with the domestic part of your life. You have enough power of energy to get into bed, and hopefully sleep until you get up tomorrow and follow the same tedious pattern all over again. Going to school to educate myself onto a professional level of expertise; to do something more enjoyable for myself, had to be on the back burner of my school dreams; I had other priorities to worry about. Fortunately, school was never far from my mind or brain, and it constantly nagged me like a bad hair day, or a migraine headache waiting to harm me to the end of my rope. If something is truly meant for you to accomplish, then there?s no stopping that road to that path. At one point in my life, I was contented. I knew when the right time presented itself, I was going to school. The right time came when I was in my forties, believe it or not. Also, remember that you?re never too old to go back to school. School is for anyone and everyone, and age is just a number which doesn?t matter at all. Can you handle it mentally and physically is the answer?
