    Just wanted to let you ladies (and gents) know that I am returning back to college after 34 yrs. I have had to unscribe from all my chat groups on the web. The next 2 yrs will be tough. I do plan on keeping you as my favorite group. I am usually a lurker and don't post much but I am an avid lurker. I look forward to each post. I have learned so much from you all and as much as I know that school will take a lot of my time in addition to working full time, I will always make time for my online family. You are a great group. I admire each and everyone of you for your talent. Thanks for sharing.

    I went back to school in my 40's, and although it was sometimes difficult with home, kids, and work, I am so glad I did it. I completed a bachelors and masters degree and besides my children, it is my greatest accomplishment. I wish you lots of luck, but you will never regret it. If you ever need encouragement please feel free to PM me.

    I did have a moment of "meltdown" a few days ago. My daughter, who has gone through this BSN program came to my rescue. She is my go to person for problems. I am looking forward to this endeavor but I know it will definitely cut into the quilting time. It makes me want to make sure to do well so I can get back to sewing asap. Will only have 1 week off between classes so not much time for pleasure.

    I'm down the road from you Susan in Largo. I drove to Tampa over the bridge 2-3 nights a week after teaching all day to get my Masters at USF. Are you going to UCF? You can do it! We will a be pulling for you andook forward to hearing about your progress. Quilting just little bits of time is a great break for your brain. Enjoy the learning!

    As UCF Alumni... it is good to know U CAN Finish!

    I know the school has gotten a bad rap for the graduation rates in the past, but it is a fabulous school.

    Great job in going back to school!!

    Good luck! I went back to get my masters at 48, after being out of college for 27 years. It was a whole different world with modern technology. I was forced to get savvy with my computer and all it can do. Glad I did it. Remember to enjoy the journey.

    Good luck! I bet you'll be surprised how easy your classes will be. 10-1 you know way more about the subject than the younger students.. Assuming you are going back TO the school building, too, not just on line.
