I was chatting with Lynne over in Scotland the other morning on Facebook and the question came up, how is school going? My answer to Lynne was that I had decided to end this college experience for a number of reasons.
With my current schedule working full time, getting to work hours before anyone else and feeling it by the time I get home around 6 PM or later, I was asking too much of this 64 year old body and mind. Also after examining the course material I realized that to succeed and not just do the bare minimum required many more hours of attention than I had to give. Add to that the college math which involves areas like algebra, geometry and equations I have never even seen before meant not only doing the work but learning a whole new math that this brain was not ready to tackle.
Said all that to say that I am not sorry for being unsuccessful but sure wish someone had explained more fully what I was really getting into so I could have made a better judgement call. No one likes to admit they are not capable of doing a task and where this is concerned I am happier ending it now than down the road after adding torment to my already stressful life. A really good lesson was in fact learned.
