How old is too old to go back to school? And will they refer to me as the old lady in their study group?
I am weird, are you? There was a very distinct period in my mid 20's when I realized knowing this about myself gave me an incredible amount of self confidence. I decided instead of trying to change myself I was going to like the complex, sensitive, character voice for every occasion, wannabe gangster girl inside me. I realized all of my weird idiosyncrasies not only made me unique but also made me extremely valid. By owning this I came into my own.
I have been reflecting a lot this week as I am preparing to return to school. It takes a fair amount of self reflection to become the old lady at college. But starting June 1st that will be me!! Wish me luck I know I will need it. Secretly though, I cannot wait to go school supply shopping!!
