After being out of education for what seems like a very long time, 6 years to be precise and yes I feel old now, I am sooooo excited to share that I am going back into education! Who knew the thought of essays and deadlines would get me excited, or am I just excited about all the new stationary I can buy?
Going back to school has been a really hard decision. Its also been really hard to find something that would fit into my life as I am now. I'm not 18 anymore I didn't want to go to university for three years away from home and my family and friends and get drunk and eat pizza, I have commitments now, bills a house a life here. It was also hard to find something that would fit around my current job, lets face it once you get used to having money the last thing you want to do is give it all up! Thankfully, I have found a course that is one day a week, I can continue to work full-time at my job, which I love, study and stay home with my cat and of course Liam!
I am slightly dissapointed at the education system that there isn't enough out there for adult learners, or that they don't advertise what is out there well enough, my point being if I had found this course earlier I probably would have done it two years ago! Hindsight is a wonderful thing isn't it...
I really wanted to share this post, because having not gone to university at 18, I thought I may not ever get there, there always seems to be something that crops up or stands in your way and until recently I wasn't 100% sure what I wanted to even have a career in. My point is, when you do know what you want to do and find something you are passionate about and really enjoy look into all the options, there is so much about and so many ways to get help with funding your education don't ever think its too late!
Are you a 'adult learner'?
Did you find it hard getting back into education?
