SHOOK: Starting Over at almost 30

Going back to school has been one of the most enlightening and frightening experiences in my life. I knew it was time for me to go back to school because, living and working with mom isn’t cute. Working with some pretty spiteful people (mainly the men), isn’t cute. Wondering what if every graduation season, isn’t cute. So I made that decision to go back to school, sure it’s online but it’s still an education. I had to do my financial aid and that’s another scary ass experience because I have to make sure that my information is correct because if its not , I got to pay a fine or worse, jail time. I’m trying to make sure that I’m following all the rules and I just feel so out of the loop because I’m so much older. My age brings a positive and a negative. A positive because I have more real-world experiences, especially working crappy jobs. A negative because I have to start all over again and I feel a little behind. But my uncle said once, “that its better to have tried, than to live in regret.” I’m going to try everything I can to get this education and I hope that God will stay with me throughout the journey because I already know its going to be some rough patches.
