From Unemployed to Studious

Wed Nov 14, 2007, 8:38 PM
  • Listening to: the sound of my furnace
  • Reading: a bus schedule
  • Watching: the smoke rise
  • Playing: zuma
  • Eating: a mandarin orange
  • Drinking: pepsi
Well, it's been an awesome spring, summer and fall being unemployed, having no schedule to follow, staying up late, and sleeping later :D but, all good things come to an end so it's time to get serious again.

I've been fortunate enough to get government funding to go back to school. 75% of the course paid for, and a living allowance for the next 8 months while I'm in school. :dance:

I settled on a legal adminstrative assistant course. Lots of openings in the field here, and tons of opportunity for advancement! It's a HUGE relief to know I'll never have to go back into customer service again :lol:

It's going to be a little odd being back in school after so many years, but I'm thinking I'm going to enjoy it a lot more this time around.

At very least....it's going to be an interesting, busy 8 months.

Bear with me if I'm a little slow responding to notes and messages during that time.  I have to study, or someone might ground me :rofl:

Thanks Sandy. My kids are already teasing me about attending parent teacher meetings :lol: You're right about the down time, though today it seems to be an exercise in frustration what with all the "document contains no data" messages *grrrrrrrrr*

Congrats! Trust me, going back to school is nerve racking in the beginning, but it gets easier. I started school in April after a 16 year break and it was tough in the beginning, but it's getting easier.

Good luck!
