#247 - 03/28/2003 12:22 PM My first semester back

I went to college for a year in 1994 and did really badly I was on probation and ended up dropping out. In the years since I worked(at times 2 jobs) and I went back to school this past semester. I am only doing 3 classes but I'm gettting A's in all of them. I have a career goal in mind and have already started planning my classes to obtain my AA and prepare to transfer to a 4yr school.
I'm also working while in school and I feel i've matured and changed so much in the last 9yrs. I don't regret my first year of college as I did have fun and met some great friends(had the dorm expereince) but if I coudl do it over i'd study more and do a lot different.
But I cant redo the past, so I have to move on and do well now.

Bethers, congratulations on your decision! Your experience fits that of many other adult students. That is one reason "older" students often excel in their studies. Life teaches us many lessons. Good luck to you!
