Well here I go, so many thoughts in my head that I just can’t get them out. It’s been almost a year since I’ve been out of work, and I’m still sitting here thinking what am I going to do with myself. After working 16 years at the same job and over 20 years basically doing the same thing over and over again, and raising 3 kids that don’t really need me anymore, I felt depleted. Today I decided to enroll in college. Something I have always wanted to do, but after turning 30 then 40 I didn’t think I had it in me. My husband is what I call a professional student, he has been in college for the past 15yrs off and on, leaving me to always make sure the family is being taken care of. He is now going back to pursue his masters and plans to go further, and still has no career! So today I decided it’s my turn, determined! I don’t even want to discuss it with my family and friends, I just want to do it. If you knew most of them you would know they would talk me out of it and break my determination. Even if no one reads this, I just have to share this in my own way. Its a way to keep track of my new beginnings and stay moving forward. Wish me luck! I’m going to do this!
