I am a perpetual student…literally. If there were an award for perseverance, I would surely win it. After getting married while still in college, I dropped out to start my new life with my husband. We lived an hour and a half drive from the nearest university and there was no such thing as on-line classes back in the day. So I returned to college in my twenties just in time to find out I was pregnant.
Did I mention the commute time? Those were fun days, chewing on crackers and drinking ginger ale while stopping every fifteen minutes to…never mind. So again, I dropped out.
I returned in my early thirties but now, with three teenagers at home, I soon developed stomach ulcers…seriously… trying to keep up with their activities and my studies.
Finally, at the age of 48, I earned my coveted degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with concentrations in Psychology, Education, and English. That was one of the proudest days of my life…and, yes, I looked really cute in that cap and gown as I walked with those twenty-somethings!

Criticizing Romney for telling students to ‘borrow money from your parents,’ and saying to laughter, ‘Gee, why didn’t I think of that?’ Castro said, ‘I don’t think Governor Romney meant any harm. I think he is a good guy. I just don’t think he has any idea how good he’s had it.’”
