Adrenaline...Can You Feel It....

Whoever started the saying "School is Cool," I'd like to ask them what they were thinking! School is always on my mind and sometimes I wonder what possibilities may come after completing my degree, which is excited and scary! I love the opportunity to learn new ideas and challenge myself although it's been challenging with being a mom and going to school, and supporting my husband with his endeavors, but sometimes I wonder if I have it in me-16 credits is just about enough to make someone be on the edge! The tests are starting, papers are due, and the stress escalades...but I kind of like it....isn't that sick?! What kind of adrenaline comes from going to school....maybe it's when peers rip my heart out when I've written a paper that I put my soul into, or maybe it's the anticipation of getting up in front of my classmates and hopefully not letting them see my vulnerability, or maybe it's the feeling of doing well on a test, and getting an A on my paper (WHOO HOO)!

I know it will be worth it in the end....will I be a different person? I don't think so. Will I be in a better place? Hopefully! I want my kids to know how important education is and you never will regret having too much of an education. I may not be "running a marathon" in school, and even if it takes me a long time I can say that I did it! Now it's on to conquer Finance, (yaaaaay)....NOT

Oh and one more thing...I just found out that if you type a site for bible study comes up-wierd...just a bit of useless information for you!

Ash! You just inspired me! I feel like I am stuck and not moving any where with school. I have no more schooling left to do besides student teach, which I cant do until I PASS this stupid PRaxis test. I have been in college for 5 years now, and Im SOOOO SOOO ready to move on with my carrer and start a family. But, I feel like this is holding me back!
I am glad I read your blog because I feel like I can do it!! and I know how important it is to have an education, and to have my kids grow up knowing its important and them knowing I did it! Then they can!!
Love ya Ash!!! Your Amazing!

Ashlee you are awesome and I am so glad that you are doing this for yourself and for your family. I agree, that no matter how much education you have, you'll never regret it. Do you ever think back to our DEX club days??

It is hard to go to school and be a mom let alone a wife! Just ask Melanie and Kyle. lol You will not be sorry. Hang in there it will be over before you know it! One credit at a time! :o)
When I look at your URL there is no www. That must be the difference.
