My experience after six weeks of school is a bit overwhelming. School is hard. It’s a lot of work. My first web assignment was an HTML project. Oh boy, was that hard. It took me three days to complete that assignment. I spent all weekend inside and was up late at night coding. It was a nightmare, but I completed the task. I am learning lots of new things in my web class and I think I will thank my professor at the end of the semester for opening up my mind to the web because before this, I wanted nothing to do with social media. The only social media account I had was LinkedIn. Now look at me. I have created a Twitter account, created a Flipboard (something I knew nothing about) and now I am blogging. Who would have known. 🙂
I was expecting my first day at school to be a nightmare. It was a scary feeling. All kinds of thoughts were going through my head. Will I be able to find my classes? Am I going to be the oldest person in my class? Will the assignments be too much for me? What if I fail? So far, I think I am doing okay.
After being in the work force for over thirty years, and losing my job, I decided to challenge myself by going back to school and getting my degree. At times, I feel overwhelmed because this is a new experience and I feel like I am way over my head. It’s a lot to take in. I have never been in college before and I had to familiarized myself with the layout of the campus. Wish me luck as I continue on my journey.
