Age gracefully…not in this life. Back to school? Aging baby boomer? Life is not a journey to the grave with intentions of arriving safely in a pretty well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming … WOW! What a ride! So Betty and I decided to return to school. This is my second semester and I still wake up in the middle of the night worried that I should have done something different for class. College has changed since I first attended. The students are younger than most of my children, their goals are different than mine, our eyes see things differently. But we are also alike, we are here to learn and enjoy the process.

There are all sorts of people returning to school but generally we fall into two groups. The first group left school before completing their college educations. The second group is returning because they are seeking something more out of life, more stimulation, and more interaction, to contribute to society. Going back to school can be overwhelming and especially daunting for those not familiar with current technology. I have often thought there should be a handicapped definition for those of us who are technically challenged.

What Betty and I lack is a support system what we hope to find through this blog are more students like us. So please join us. Ask questions; post answers or just sound off… Please Join Us Now.
