New Chapter

Guess where I am going tomorrow?
Orientation for college! I am 30 and have never been, but have always wanted to. I have put it off for many many years out of fear. Fear of what, really? I am not even sure, but I had a million and one excuses why it would never work out for me.

I'm not sure what happened, but I got a small bit of courage on a Monday and called and scheduled myself an appointment for the Compass test for that coming Wednesday. I have been so freaked out by having to take this test which doesn't make any sense because it's not a pass or fail type of test. It just lets the college know where you are with reading, writing, and math. I studied math like crazy up until right before the test. I took the test and I did surprisingly well overall. I did not do so hot in math, but I knew I wouldn't. I actually got the highest scores you can get for the other two sections. I am not an academic dummy afterall!

To say that I am excited is a bit of an understatement. I can't wait to learn about something new or even be refreshed on what I already learned in high school. After a few years of staying home and trying to make the jewelry thing work I am just ready to be out in the world again-meeting new people, learning new things. I will continue to make things. It's just what I love to do, but I am about to spend time nurturing other sides of me that I forgot existed.

So, here is to a brand new adventure and a new chapter in my life.  :)

  1. That's so awesome Lindsey. I did not go to college until I was even older and I think it made me appreciate it so much of luck.
