    Beginning Again

    It is hard to think that, at my age, one could actually start living again.  I thought it was over for me, but now hope is returning and something in me is ready to meet the world.  It is a scary thought.  I want to go back to school so I can learn skills that will...

    I Could Go to School Forever...

    I love to learn and college forces you to do lots of that fast and in a short period of time...and you do it, no matter what else is going on in your life. Without the commitment to school, I just dabble in learning topics :) I get lazy.... after all I won't get a failing...

    Need to Finish

    I'm so close to my degree and have been doing it little by little as I raise the little ones. Getting married at 19 wasn't the brightest thing I've done but I'm determined to graduate. It may be on the twenty year plan but if that's what it takes then so be it! I will finish...

    I just graduated High School. I decided earlier this year to not apply to college yet and take some time off. I know this is best because I'm not ready to leave home, but I miss school so much. I loved my High School, it was one of the only places I've ever felt accepted. I miss...

    I was accepted to graduate school

    and will be going in the fall, but my school is in a city 1,000 miles away where I don't know anybody and I'm kind of freaking out. I still really want to go and nothing will stop me, but I can't help feeling scared. I feel like such a coward.

    Yes Please, I Know So Much ...

    Yes please, I know so much more now and just wished I'd payed attention. Rather than worring about not fitting in because I wasnt "cool" I have seen these "cool" people now and most of them have council house nd 2.9 children. I'm so glad I didnt fit in

    Finished School

    I already finished grad school and don't have enough money for anymore school. Plus, I don't really have a need. But I would love to be that famous guy who got paid to go to college. I think he's on Facebook or Myspace. I would just love that job.

    I had a daughter about 6 months ago. I dropped out of my first year of college, because it was difficult to travel to my school on the bus with my slowly and steadily enlarging belly. I'm desperate to go back. I can't stand to be without some type of learning in my life...

    Weird That I Say It, Actually

    Since middle school, I deal with anxiety and school phobia so I hated going to school. But still, I could enjoy it... somehow. If I could just sit in the corner, invisible, no group work or standing in front of people, or reading homework [it was hard to hear me - my voice is so...

    I honestly cannot wait

    for school to start again. I honestly had no life this summer and I want to be in school so that way I have homework to do and a place to go during the day. I'll be able to see the few friends I have and I will be able to be around people and socialize again!

    Back To School I Go! 😁

    I'm going back to college this spring and I'm nervous about being smart enough to pass. I'm kinda retarded, (from experimenting with drugs and being a stupid kid). But I'm hoping that I'm not the only one who feels like this. Any college students out there that feel or felt like...

    So Bad!

    I want to re-enroll in college so badly I can't stand it. I want to either teach Jr High / High School or be a counselor. I don't know which. It was speech pathology but I don't know how much I would enjoy that. I'm just a self-sabotoger & a procrastinator. But I want a real...
