    first 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!
