Jouneying through college

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
