The reason I came back to school first off is to finish it. When I was out of school I felt I was still learning but not the right things not in the right manner. So it was about 2 years since I started back. It was hard getting up everyday putting myself in the school mind set. But I got used to it again and most times I enjoy waking up to go to school and push forward to the finish. Now I don't know why I waited so long to go back to school but I'm glad I'm back in. I think when I was out of school I was having too much fun hanging out. Now that I'm back in and enjoying myself a bit more, hopefully I can finish these programs and move on with the rest of my life.
