I am 47 and my three kids are grown. I am married to a terrific guy who like me had been married to an alcoholic. We have so much in common that sometimes we can’t believe it. When I met my husband, 4 years ago, I had decided that since my kids were raised it was time for me to pursue my dream of finishing my education. I married my first husband, when I was way too young and put college on the back burner to raise a family. I have spent the past four years starting then pausing, then starting again to go to school. I have changed my major so many times that my husband won’t even discuss it with me anymore. My thinking is, that besides our home, my college degree is the most expensive thing I have ever invested in and it has to be right. I have been exploring the possibilities. Some things sound like a good thing to study and then you get into it and it doesn’t sound so appealing anymore. I started out at a business college and was majoring in human resources and then went on to medical coding and I think there were a few other choices in between but I can’t remember them now and then I finally decided that what I want is a real college experience minus the parties and dorm rooms etc. So I registered with Ball State Distance Education and I am pursuing a general studies degree with a concentration in behavioral science. I bought my books for my first quarter of classes and I have already been reading the textbooks. I am so fascinated with my psycology and anthropology books that my husband commented I am reading them like novels. This feels so right and even though I am a bit scared, I am determined to one day have my degree. I have no idea what type of career will come out of this, but it is kind of like an adventure. I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
