Learning and doing more...

I didn't do well in grade school,
or high school,
or my first semester of college.

When I was a kid I hated school and could not wait to be free of it.
Now it's all I can think about.

I want to go back to school/college/university so bad.
I really really and truly do.
I've completed a few of my generals, that's all.

On the one hand I find that really sad considering that I didn't do much of anything the first year I was married.  I could have gotten a whole heck of a lot of school done in that time,
but I was scared because I had failed all of my classes and didn't think I could get another grant to pay for my schooling.  Why I felt I couldn't go to school without a grant I don't know.

On the other hand.
I didn't really know what I wanted to major in at that point.
I had a general idea of majoring in health or something,
and then the plan was to transfer to BYU and enroll in their Sports Medicine program.

Now I have a much much better idea of what I want to do.
Sports Medicine is still the ultimate goal.
It's something that I find incredibly fascinating, useful, and strangely fun.
So my idea is to finish my generals and then enroll in the paramedic program at UVU.
Paramedic knowledge would be very helpful to have to go along with Sports Medicine.
I can picture myself as the head trainer at a high school,
and eventually the head trainer of a professional sport team.
I'd prefer basketball or football, volley ball would be fun too.
I think it'd be really awesome to be involved medically in the Olympics too.

I love that being trained as a paramedic could be so helpful personally.
For my kids who are so active.
For any emergency that may come along.

I get really excited just thinking about all I could do with that knowledge.
I am so excited to go back to school.
Just a couple more years and all my kids will be in school full time.
I'll be able to be in school full time.
In the mean time I can start working on my generals by taking online classes.
Come fall that is my plan.

That'll be me someday instead of some guy.

I figure I could minor in automobile repair.
I mean talk about being useful :D

Wow, Rose, you are an inspiration! Isn't it funny how you view schooling so differently when you aren't "forced" to go? I've thought about how fun going back to school would be.

I would love to go back to school one day too. Not sure for what though. Maybe finish my degree. Right now it seams like a pipe dream cause my kids need so much from me, but hey we still got our whole lives ahead of us eh? I'm inspired :)
