This takes me back!

Wow, someone has been slacking! 
After my last post about high school, it got me thinking. I've decided to go back to school! How exciting!

And terrifying. Because I was a stupid and lazy teenager, I have to upgrade some high school courses before I can attend college. No big deal, right? WRONG. I have to do Math and Chemistry, two of the scariest things ever.

Sums it up.
Luckily, I have a great support system, and a ton of friends that are 'mathematically inclined'. 
I encourage all of my Mom/Dad friends to go back to school when you can. Don't ever feel like you've been out for too long, or that you just can't do it. Do it for your kids. When they're older, and they see the effort that you put in, they'll realize that they too can do anything they set their minds to!

All to my friends that aren't Moms or Dads, but high school/college drop outs - It's not too late! There is no shame in trying again. You are in a different place in your life now! Make a change! There are lots of ways to get help for returning to school. 
If you're in PG, you can check out Jump On Board, or go to Continuing Education at the old John McInnis building.
If you aren't in PG, use the internet to find resources in your town. Check your local college, or go back to your old high school and ask the counselors for information!


  1. Not sure if that's sarcasm or not... If it isn't, then I'm happy!
    If it is, then I'm sad!

  2. Definitely not sarcasm. :) good day to ya!

  3. Yep!! We have University Without Walls (

    And I just have to say... I never took Chem in High School. I never took physics, either. Back in the olden days, we only had to take THREE sciences to gradjiate. I took IPS (Intro to Physical Sciences), Biology, and EMT training! :D This was in the days before MCAS, (, so who knows what kids have to do now. My brother dropped out at 16 and got his GED. He now makes $60,000 a year... that's twice what I make with a B.A. Of course, he irradiates his testicles 12+ hours a day...
