An older student

I am working 40 hours a week and taking only one class this semester: Intermediate Spanish. I found when I tried to complete two 3-credit classes and work full-time that I felt overwhelmed. I hope that I will be able to discipline myself better, because finishing my senior year, one class/one semester at a time will take much more time that I'm willing to do. Yes, do, like doing time in prison. Without working full-time, I could enjoy going back to school, but as it is, work becomes priority, because without it there would be no school.

Unfortunately, the reason I moved back to Richmond is because of school. The choice to come back to Richmond is solely because by returning to complete this VCU degree many years later, I have the opportunity to have some of my less than stellar grades dropped from my transcript and I would already be familiar with my surroundings. (Or so I thought)
