That's great that you are going back to school! I have tried several times but I never finished a class until now! I am only taking one math course this semester to get my feet wet. Next semester I hope to take on a few more and eventually get a degree in business. What are you studying?

After being out of school for 15 years I have to take a graduate class in career counseling so I can be licensed in NC. I am taking it online, which I have never done before. To take ONE class is going to cost $2000! Fortunately my employer is going to pay for it. Even though I don't have much interest in career counseling I am kind of looking forward to being in school again. I hope too much brain fog has not set in.

Alejandrogiz, my partner is a nurse but just started med school.  He got diagnosed one week before classes started.  I think his course load right now is 6 classes.  He is doing fine and is glad to be occupied with school while I get my "Masters" in HIV while reading articles, books, forums, and other online stuff.  LOL

On his first day of med school his second class ever was....on HIV!  Weird timing.

Enjoy school....you will do fine.   :)
