Back to School!!!!

Last night I went back to school! I started an on-line course to receive my Paralegal certification! I have about 6 textbooks, and the class will last 14 weeks (not 7 as I had originally thought). I am very lucky to have this opportunity, but I must say that coming home from work to study is a real pip!!! I always like to come home and read and watch TV shows with Mike. Tonight I actually sat at the dining room table and tried to figure out some problems. This stuff is not easy. Luckily, I can go right into work tomorrow and talk law with the attorneys I work with!

So, if I am not around these parts as much over the new few weeks, you can blame the schooling! I am hoping to get in the swing of it and move along quickly so it won't disrupt things to much in my "real" life of hanging out with Mike, reading books, stamping, hanging out with friends and family, etc.!

School daze it is then! Sounds like you have it under control, and you are so right..going to work will be like becoming the teachers pet all over again! I like how you changed your "intro" on the side bar to that delightful saying!

You will be an amazing student, I'm sure.
And I give you a ton of credit, as going back to school for anything is so hard....unless it's something you're really interested in.
I went "back to school"(90 hours was all it took) to become a CASA and that was a breeze because I so loved what I was learning.
I hope you have the same experience !

Laura, Thanks for your post. I came here to email you my address, although with school, I don't know where you will find the time to make cards (real soon, anyway). Couldn't find an "email me" button. Should be on your profile page, right?

Don't give up on eating healthy. Tomorrow is another day. Next time temptation or stress strikes, eat a SPOONful, not a BOWL full! lol

Congratulations to you! I used to be a legal assistant and LOVED it. I still miss it. My best friend is a paralegal. She said the certification process went way fast - so I hope it goes fast for you and that you have a good time with it too. Keep us posted!

I can't remember how I first stumbled onto your wonderful blog (the post before this, with all the vintage pieces used in your studio; the Christmas cards before that -- oh my!) But it has become a bit of a regular stop!

Congratulations with returning to school. Always challenging, but I can tell you from returning after life seasoning that the desire to learn makes it so very much easier!
