bb is right, you're never too old to go back to school!

I haven't taken any courses for a couple of years now, but I usually have a couple of University courses under my belt. I take them simply for general interest. Over the years, I've taken several Political Science courses, business, Drafting & Architecture, English, Philosophy, Psychology, etc... And there are so many more I want to take regarding History, Geography, Sociology, Religions...the list for me is endless. I will be a perpetual student! lol
Do it! Good luck to you!

well sharp, thats nice to know, goodlife are you going back to college or high school diploma?

Now if Sharpe is not an inspiration for all of us to continue our studies! I just don't know where you find the energy! Well done!

Rajunca: you have a lot of guts and I wish you the best of notes! Good luck!


Don't give me too much credit Grapes...I am a high energy person, but I also have my days to myself, so I am able to take classes during the day. It's once school is out that my days get busy with my teens.

Bill that reminds me of an old Mark Twain story. He spoke of leaving home at around 17 because he and his father didn't see eye to eye on anything. He returned home when he was 21 and was amazed at how much his father had learned and matured in 4 years !!! LOL

Cajun, there should be no problems going back to college at 40ish if you have your head on straight. My mother had to leave college when she was 20 to return home and take care of her sick father and help work to make ends meet. She went on to meet my father, marry, have 3 kids. After my brother and I were out from under the roof, she returned to college at 40 and got her degree! I am not sure who was prouder between her at my graduation or me at hers!!!

If you apply yourself to your books like you do to your music, it should be good times! Good luck to you...



It really is true Rob, when you think about it. One of my step sons and I use to go head to head about everything. I use to tell him I didn't get where I am in life by having 17 year old kids routinely fool me. It used to piss him off to hear that. He hated me. Now we are the best of friends. College, once very important to me in getting a job is now in retrospect a place to be when you are too old to be at home and too young to be out in the world.

Thanks for bringing this up. I took a bunch of courses at Pima College a few years back. It was a lot of fun and interesting stuff to me. Really keeps me feeling young. Some how I drifted away. Time to go back. I get all A's now that it doesn't count. lol. Too bad I couldn't do that when it counted. I am also always older than the instructors. Besides the co-eds get better and better looking.

thanks bil you know man it is like what you do when you are a dumnb kid you get out of high school at 17 but today tese kids don't realize it man you have your meals there and you play sports you do things at school called activities, but i was a dumb thing idid and now regreat it some of my old school mates i see are professionail people, they know who i am, but you know bill i had it made most of my life man. bill my dad almost died on a offshore drilling rig when iwas young he was 21 at the time a boss on drilling platforms. but my dad is what you call a school of hard knocks fellow man if you know about the school of hard knocks.likei learned a musical insturment on my own self taught troung old honky tonk records like merle haggard and hank williams and 50's rock and roll that was a challenge it self.


You know my Dad used to say: school is one of the best times of your life. I didn't believe him then because I had to go. He was right though. School is a great time second only to summer camp. Funny thing about my Dad. The older I get the smarter he appears to me. It's not what you learn in school that counts. It's what you learn in life that really matters. Most important lesson that I have learned. Never get caught up in believing my own B.S. lol.
