I Don't Like Having Unfinished Goals.

Even though, I firmly believe that having a college degree in itself does not necessarily measure one's intellect, I don't like having unfinished personal goals. So yes, I do plan on getting back into college to complete my Bachelor's degree in Psychology.

Go for it!<br />
I agree that a degree is not a measure of one's intellect, but of one's desire to fulfill one's self. <br />
I returned to college at age 39 and changed my major from Computer Science to Art. I went, not for a job, but for the knowledge that I wanted. I was fearful at first, but found that my life experiences made many of the classes easier than they were for the young students right out of high school. <br />
I learned so much more than I ever anticipated, both from the curriculum and from the staff and other students! Looking back, I feel like it was one of the best things I ever did for myself.

The way psych is taught is very "dry" but it's one of many things I am strongly drawn to.<br />
<br />
Others have told me to switch to Comp Sci, because I'm "good at computers" too But if I were to listen to most recommendations, I'd end up having changed my major multiple times, or going for numerous degrees LOL<br />

Thank you for the support Alex and congratulations on finishing :)

LOL Thank you my friend :)

Attagirl! I don't know you that well yet, but I think you and psychology will get along just peachy-like. :-)

Old schmold! You'd have a sense of accomplishment, yes? Doesn't that stand for something? :P

Honey, I'm old. Even if I got the degree I wanted I wouldn't have the energy to do anything with it! :P

Aww sweetie...If I can do it, YOU can do it! We'll do it together! : )

Good for you! Of course a degree doesn't measure intelligence, but it takes some to get one, right? Go for it. Trust me, it will get harder the longer you wait. I started some grad courses and got sidetracked. It looks like that's where it's going to stay. :(

Thank you very much for the support : ) I appreciate it.

Way to go. Just finish it out.
