Greetings DAHS Class of 1986!

Hello to all my high school classmates who have linked over here from our class page!
Even though I have lived far away from York County since 1992, I have often wanted to attend our reunions and class events.
I hope you are all well... happy, blessed with good jobs and good families!

I wonder what you think of me. (here's my mug shot ----

Do you think I'm crazy? Do you think I'm doing the right thing? Are you laughing at me? Are any of you jealous? lol

I wonder what your lives have been like. I wonder what places you have gone to. I wonder what it's like to be married and have children (both of which I have managed to avoid) and work in steady careers.

So...what is my latest news regarding my college journey? Well, I have been researching schools here in Florida while waiting for my transcripts to arrive in the mail.
I honestly do not think an online program, regardless of price, can offer me what I am looking for. I seek class interaction and "hands-on" experience.
I think in some ways I am also trying to give myself the learning and growing experiences I missed out on by dropping out of WCU in 1986. Sure, I had many different experiences... but something just doesn't feel complete.

There are currently three FL schools which are high on my list:
*Eckerd College in St. Pete (PEL Program)
*New College in Sarasota
*University of South Florida (St. Pete)
I am also still interested in:
*Rollins, and maybe
*FL Atlantic or
*FL International

Not much else to say, right now. Feels like a waiting game.

Hey, nice blog! I'm a returning student myself at 41 (was 40 when I began my own "second half"). My journey is a bit different from yours in that I'm doing it as cheaply as possible and hope never to set foot in a classroom. I had started a little blog myself a while back but have been neglecting it. You might just inspire me to pick it back up. :)
