I am going back to school. In 11 days. What was an idea for the past few months has quickly become my reality. If you had asked me two years ago whether I would go back to school or not, I would have given you a vehement answer in the negative, but here I am. No longer only me. I have two others.
I dragged my feet a little bit and had valid reasons for doing so, but now I am on board and jumping head first into Calculus I. It is only one class, though it is where I start. My plan is to pursue mechanical engineering at Wichita State University. Maybe throw in a chemistry minor while I am at it. Working full time and loving my little family will necessitate taking it slow with the classes (maybe 12-15 hours a year), but it will be worth it.
Excitement is not something I have associated with school in the past, but I am excited. It will be a challenge, but I am ready.
I just purchased my calculator.
