It's official... I have lost my mind...

after being out of school for almost 19 years, I have decided to further my education by enrolling at a University that allows me to get my Bachelors online. I am going for Bachelors of Science in Business. I have wanted to do this for over ten years but figured my life was too hectic and with raising a young family it wouldn't be feasible to do. This is going to take me until 2011 to complete but I am so anxious to get started. My first class starts this Wednesday, November 7th.

My family is behind me 100 percent and my son has volunteered to help me with my math... haha... thanks Jeff. I just may take you up on that offer.

There are three reasons that factored my decision to pursue this. 1: Proving to Jeff just how important an education really is to getting a better paying job, 2: This will give me tremendous knowledge to get the online store where it should be and maintaining the business and 3: To get me out of my dead end, going nowhere job I have now. Before you ask whether or not I got a chance to talk to my boss about a raise, the answer is no. He has not been in long enough to corner and apparently his golf game is far more important.

Wish me luck.

Wow. Good for you! I would love to take classes on line, but I simply can't afford it. I would just like to get one degree to say there, I did it.
I did go to college, but dropped out to get married.
We can all see how well that decision paid off huh?

You are setting an awesome example, good luck with it!
