The time has come to move us into a new era and I'm currently in training. My mind is whirring with all the possibilities. I almost want to skip tomorrow's class to try out some of the great things I learned today. But, I won't. Tomorrow we've been promised things that are equally as, or possibly more, exciting than today.
It's been a while since I've taken a formal training class and I'm loving it. I really enjoy learning. My trainer is good and the material is good and I'm actually getting the help I need. I'm a big nerd. I admit it. I genuinely like school. I was an adult college student. I started my degree in my twenties and between husband, kids and work earned my bachelor's 20 years after I started.
Unconventional, yes. Would I choose differently? No. I (as I might have mentioned) was an angry teen. I had an interesting childhood, that I simply did not know how to deal with. Angry is no way to experience university. Luckily it took me a couple of years to figure things out. By the time I started, I was calmer and, dare I say it, more grown up. I LOVED college. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it. Well, except economics. Bleh.
Anyway, enough remembrances. My point here is that I'm in a training class. I'm learning a lot. So much, in fact, I'm smarter than when I started. Now that's a good day!
