Just thought I’d introduce myself and give a little background. First, this blog is about me being a non-traditional student. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it just means that I am an older student who has been out of school for some time. I originally started college straight out of high school like so many others but I didn’t finish my degree as I had expected. I dropped out of school after about 4 semesters and entered the workforce. I have worked mostly as an Administrative Assistant but I never really embraced this profession as I never felt it suited my personality.
So I am trying to move out of this profession. I am currently finishing out my last two classes at community college and will have an Associate’s degree in Business Administration in August. Also I was recently accepted into business school at my local university and plan to begin classes there in this coming fall.
I am starting this blog for two reasons. First, I have wanted to start a blog for a long time and I thought there might be other nontraditional students out there interested in connecting and sharing knowledge. Secondly, this is my attempt to improve and gain skills. I enjoyed writing when I was in high school and thought blogging might be a good way to rediscover that lost love. I also plan to use this blog to help build up my tech skills, which I will share on this blog as I learn new things.
I am excited about the transition my life is taking as dropping out of college was always one of my biggest regrets. I know I am looking at several more years of school but I am up for the challenge!
