might be taking a few college classes.............

MAYBE-------Been toying with the idea for a while now and a few of my girlfriends from highschool are now going back to get the college education they didn't get earlier in life so I said "OK WHY NOT ME TOO?" I'm not sure I want to go for a full blown degree,but there are some classes that I've always wanted to study.World Civilization-World History-Ancient History-World Religions-Creative Writing.I've had this novel "in my head" and in a ton of notebooks that I've been writing on since I was a teenager.WRITING literally saved my life when I was a teen-when I was going through some bad situations.Then after high school LIFE happened and I went to work-I still kept writing on it and changing and coming up with new story lines and doubting myself LOL.And then later in life FAMILY happened.Each new year I make the same old resolution to either WRITE IT or BURN IT LOL. Haven't burned my notes yet LOL,so I've decided to finally try and get it all sorted out and on paper.I HOPE LOL. And about the college classes,I put a phone call into an advisor today to see what all it entails and how much it would cost to take a couple of classes online. I hope it's feesable. I'd be homeschooling my son during the day and then once we were finished with his studies I would do mine.I would only take 1-2 classes at a time because I don't think I could handle much more and again I'm not sure if I'm going for a degree-I just want to further my education in a few areas. The more I think about it,the more excited I get.I mentioned it to the hubby a few days ago but I don't really think he was paying attention to me so when he comes home from work in the morning he's going to get an earful LOL.
