Jan 9, '07Quote from catzy5You will do GREAT!!!!!! Good luck. I am glad to see you here again more frequently. I missed your energetic postsI am still scared hehehee... I started in 04 and I am more scared this semester then any other because it is my last semester of pre reqs I have done fantastic up till now and I don't want to blow it on the homestretch so its making me very very nervous, compound that with I am trying to take ap2 and micro together and I keep thinking will I have enough time in the day to do it "all".
Jan 9, '07i wanted to thank everyone for the encouragement, it's nice to see i’m not the only one that feels this way and i have the supports of you guys to help me through all this! you guys are great!
Jan 11, '07first of all...you are so lucky to have found this site in the beginning of your college career! it is the best support out there and i just found it about 2 months ago; i sure could have used it the last couple of years.
i started back to school in '04...my first day i sat in the parking lot frozen like an idiot! i actually called a friend and told her that i couldn't do it. i was 37 and was so scared that i would stick out like a sore thumb. i thought that my backpack made me look like a geek and that i would be ridiculed...flashbacks of highschool i guess . i sat there for a few minutes, took deep cleansing breaths, and checked out everyone elses backpacks, he he he.
fast forward to today...i start ns next week! i'm not as nervous as i was that first day, but i do still get a few butterflies the night before. but school is awesome! i have been one of the oldest in all of my classes, but believe it or not i have yet to be the oldest. most of my study partners could be my kids, and they love having a mom figure in their group; ultimately everyone is very supportive and accepting. and i am a better student now in my old age.
well that's my story!
good luck to all you "newbies" out there!
