I feel so badly that I'm ignoring my blogs, but my life has been very busy. The first update I want to share with everyone is that I'm back in college! That's right. I have taken the plunge to finish my degree. I'm very excited but it's also proving to be overwhelming. Yes that picture sums up how I'm feeling lately.
I have always regretted not finishing my degree. I had 33 hours under my belt when I was at Nicholls State University from 1993-95. For the last few years, I was on the fence about going back. I regained a lot of my confidence back after dropping 100 pounds. I still feel out of place being older, married, and already having a pre-teen. I have met some other classmates my age so I'm starting to get over that awkwardness. But being older than a couple of my professors doesn't help at all.
I decided to get my Associate's Degree in General Studies so I will graduate next spring in May. I'm debating if I should get my Bachelor's degree, but I'm not sure that I will. I'll worry about it next year. For now, I have plenty to keep me busy. One of the classes I'm currently taking this semester is a Dreamweaver computer class. I got the program heavily discounted as I'm a full-time student. I'm already learning so much. I really think I would like to learn more about managing websites and even SEO. I am taking a class next semester on social networking which I do have a good bit of knowledge but looking forward to learning more.
I am going to work really hard on getting this blog back on track since I've lost readers and page ranks. It's totally my fault, but I have some major plans for this blog. I am hoping to move this blog to my own host. Then I will give it a major overhaul design wise. Stay tuned as I am planning a big contest next month and unveil the new blog design.
