How's it going?
Edited to Add: Are any of you going to a brick-and-mortar school, or are you going online?
I do a little of both. My school (NJIT) does have an actual campus, but the course that are a little easier, I take those online. The tougher ones I take on campus.
What is your major? Is it something you always wanted to do, or is because it's a secure field in terms of employment?
Mine is computer engineering. I always, always had a strong sense of curiousity, and I've always enjoyed building and fixing things; it could be anything. Most of my working career I was a mortgage closer and processor. I was miserable! I had to stop working after the birth of my son, so I figured it was the best time to nail down the degree I always wanted in the field that interested me the most. I did want to go into nursing, but I'm not the best at emoting, and relating to people on an emotional level is an important part of the job. I think I would make people miserable!
Do you find learning any more difficult this time around than when you were younger?
I actually find it's easier. Without having the teenage angst clouding my mind, I find that I can grasp things a bit more quickly. I do have a family, but most of that is time management; it really doesn't affect my ability to learn.
