The day I finally decided to go back to school was one of the most important days of my adult life. Now that I am back in school, I feel much better about myself, and about the person I will become. My whole family congratulated me on my decision, showing me how proud of my choice they really were. One downside to going back to school is having less time to myself to relax and unwind after a long day at work.
In order to further my education, and in turn make more opportunities for myself, I needed to go back to school. There are ups and downs to my choice, but I think it was still the best decision I could make for myself.
When I left school for the first time, I was depressed and lonely. I felt like I was the only one struggling, so I stopped going to my classes. I withdrew from some, and failed others.
After the semester ended, I moved home, telling myself I was done, I couldn't do it, I wasn't good enough. It was time to take some time off. I took a year off, found a job, and finally realized that I needed to find a way to go back. I applied here, registered for three classes, and started over. None of my credits transferred, so I was back at square one. For awhile, I was alright with my classes, but I started to lose my motivation when my cousin died.
I withdrew from classes again. I only finished my math class, and took one more semester off. Now I am back in school for good, with only one class at a time. I feel better, and I can handle this. My family shows their support every day, and tells me that they are proud of me for doing what I can. Maybe someday I can do more than one at a time, but I am happy that I can do this. I don't think I would be able to do it without my family.
After a long day at work, I would love to be able to sit down and have a nice dinner and relax, but instead I'm stuck in a classroom, watching the clock. Going back to school took away some of my down time, but I still do everything I can to stay in school this time. I can save some money, but then it goes back into school, or bills, or food. Eventually, school will help me to get a better job and to save more money, but right now, I just want to flop down on my bed and take a nap. If I don't have any time to relax and unwind, I tend to get a little cranky, which really isn't very pleasant. I tell myself over and over that school is a good thing, but I get discouraged when I don't even have any time to breathe. Since I am in school, I don't have as much time to watch Netflix, or read my book, or even to spend time with my little brother. I really miss playing games with my brother after dinner, but it will all be worth it in the end.
Back on the positive side, going back to school gives me a chance to further my education. I can finally learn about all the things I couldn't learn in high school. As I learn more, I am given more opportunities to launch myself into a better life than I have now. I can take certificate programs to give myself a jump start on my career, or I can just take a class here or there to just learn about something that interests me. As I continue to learn, I can help to teach as well. My brother looks up to me, and always asks me questions about all sorts of things, but mostly math. He loves when I read his essays or projects and give him suggestions, so I keep up on my classes so that I am always up to date to help him. I have loved learning since I was a little girl, so being in school is interesting to me, as long as it is not a topic I have covered a hundred times before. Being in school makes me happy because I can give myself opportunities I would not otherwise have access too.
When I made my decision to return to college classes, I was unaware of the impact it would have on my life, both positively and negatively. Since school had always made me miserable, I was reluctant to go back, but after I did, I was finally happy, because I was back on the right track. It made me feel good to know that my family was happy for me too. Even though I don't have as much time to myself, school is the place that I really need to be. In order to be everything that I can be, I need to stay in school for as long as I can stand. It will help me learn to deal with the challenges of the real world, and it will open up doors and windows I would never have had access to otherwise. I stand by my choice to return to school, and I will do everything in my power to stay here.
