    I recently changed my major from nursing to

    computer science. I feel good about this decision and don't feel like I'm going to be stuck doing something I don't enjoy like I was with nursing. I'm excited to start computer science classes and learn.

    I can't believe it. I am one semester away from

    my dream of becoming a nurse. It may not be a big deal to most, but to me, it means so much. It means I can finally feel a sense of accomplishment. It means I can finally be a good provider and role model for my boys. It means I have finally conquered the stigmas of my past. It...

    I have switched my major four times already

    and now I'm entering my junior year. I think I have finally discovered my passion: to be an editor for a book publisher in NYC. I always saw myself doing this but pushed it to the side thinking it was ridiculous. It was. It until a few weeks ago that I started to realize I was...

    So I've been in school

    for over a year now, I'm beginning my "sophomore" year. However, I take my classes online, as they were cheaper than campus. On occasion, it feels as if I am not learning anything from these courses. Instead, it feels like I'm just trying to get that paper at the end saying I...

    Almost everyone goes to college

    because it's necessary for them to get a good job. I go for the same reason but at the same time I go for myself because I genuinely love learning. I love doing anything that's mind stimulating and going to school fulfills that need for me.

    This college work is no joke.

    When I was in high school a teachers syllabus was like 2 pages. Now I have teachers in college who have syllabi 13 pages long. Ughhhhhh I can feel the procrastination starting to kick in.

    I got my first and only job right out of high school. I wasn't smart enough to go to college (so my parents said), so I took a week for myself and then went looking for a job. Keep in mind, this was in 1984. Jobs were easier to find. I had my first interview at AIS, then was...
