Thoughtful Thursday – Continuing Education

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about going back to school. Living on the campus of a University will do that to a nerdy girl, I guess.

I’d love to go back and get my bachelor’s in whatever at some point, but right now I’d just like to go to the community college and take some continuing education courses in art. Specifically drawing, painting, and maybe something fashion related if it’s available.

We don’t have much money right now, but the courses are relatively inexpensive and I could take them one at a time. Taking the classes individually would probably allow me to learn more by immersing myself in one class, anyway.

It’s a little intimidating, though, going back to school at a later age. I know that there are plenty of people in colleges who are older than I am, but I also know that, especially at a community college, I’ll be surrounded by people fresh out of high school. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, because it’s fun to get ideas for trends, etc., I just wonder what it will be like to be the “older” person in the classroom. 26 is old to a bunch of 18 year olds!

Maybe they’ll like my awesome new haircut. šŸ™‚

Yay short hair!

Anyway, if anyone else has done this – gone back to school to further their artsy education, let me know! Words of encouragement, advice, reason – they’re all welcome.

Share the Love,
