Back in College at 42

In early 2005 I decided to renew my education and I have been taking 2-3 college courses per semester, this is on top of everything else going on. Needless to say it has been a challenge, through everything I have been able to keep my GPA up pretty high, but this has resulted in some extremely long nights and lunch hours spent studying. I did take a single semester off when I wrote my book on Podcasting but otherwise I have been at it pretty much non-stop.

In the end hitting the books again at my age will pay off, although the pain of getting an education update at my age is something that I will likely never repeat, all in all though it’s refreshing to do it by choice and not because I have to. How many of you have done a education refresh, how did you classify the experience, and did it payoff in the end?
