I'm old school

I can't believe I am actually doing this. I made the decision to go back to college. I have been doing fine with out a sheep skin attached to my portfolio, in recent months though the jobs are getting scarce and I have decided to keep my options open.

So I am back in college pursuing a triple major: an A.S. in Natural and Physical Science, an A.A. in English, and a Photography Certificate. All varied, but a perfect fit with what I am already doing. The degrees will give me the credentials to complement my
30+ years of writing credits. I hope to finish in less than a year, and will be going full-time.

This quarter I will be taking Physics (yes, I know I must be crazy), an English course (fiction, lots of reading and writing), two computer courses, and I am going to try to document all of my life's experiences to petition for credit in various courses (I'll do at least one course per quarter).

Life is about to get even crazier. The term old school is taking on a new connotation.
