I feel really blessed to be able to go back to school & get my Associates Degree! I am currently in my 2nd semester. Should be in my 3rd semester, but I had to drop a class this past summer which meant I only was able to take 1 course during this past summer & only earned 3 credits. It was unavoidable once the semester started, so I am not quite sure of my graduation date. God is really blessing me & the blessing just keep coming. During my 1st term, I earned a 3.667 GPA & made the Dean's list. I am currently at the midterm point this semester & I have A's in all 4 classes. I was invited to join both Alpha Sigma Pi, National Leadership Society & Phi Theta Kappa, National Honors Society. God has really blessed me! I joined the choir to retrain my voice. I am very grateful to Jesus for making these opportunities available to me.
Well I finished my 1st semester and I did pretty well! I am very blessed that I got a 3.667 GPA and made the Dean's List! That was all because the Lord helped me do it all, especially passing algebra class! If it wasn't for Jesus helping me, I KNOW I wouldn't have done any where as well as I did! This semester was so hard. I had been out of school for 25+ years and I had to work really hard & utilized many hours of tutoring, but I did it. This is proof to me that with Jesus as my Lord & Savior & hard work, I did it! Thank You Jesus for helping me & getting me through!!
Am I nuts, going back to school at age 45? What am I thinking? Well I am thinking I am tired of going through life bouncing from 1 Customer Service Representative job to another! These type of jobs are very stressful and the turnover is very high! So I am thinking I need to get a career so I have the potential to advance in the field I choose to get my degree in! So I am going back to school to start out getting my associates degree in Health Information Technology AAS. Eventually I would like to go back and get my associates degree in Medical Diagnostic Sonography AAS. But for now since I can not lift the required 75 lbs for that field, that will have to wait! This is my 1st semester and since I had to take a few prerequisites to get into the field due to being out of school 24 years, I will be going for 2 1/2 years instead of 2 years. I have realized that the same courses I struggled with in H.S. are the same ones I am struggling with now! I am really struggling with my Algebra class and struggling a little with Biology class!
So I am changing the direction my life is taking as I have felt lead by the Lord to do! Instead of working full time, I am going to school full time and working a work Study for the college part time! When they don't have work for me to do, I do my school work! Please keep me in prayer as I have said, I have been out of school for 24 years and I am struggling a little! But I just keep telling myself With God I can do all things through Christ Jesus who gives me strength!! Philippians 4:13
