"The main thing is I have enjoyed my time back in school and enjoy all the new things I get to learn about and that’s the most you can ask for."

This is my second time going to college. The first time I went was right out of high school. I hadn’t been interested in learning and ended up leaving to work full-time. That was roughly five years ago. I finally decided that I needed to go back to school once I had decided that I was going to try to become an author. Right now, I’m also working full-time, going to school full-time, and might add an online internship on at the end of the year.

I now have the drive to do well in my classes and enjoy learning. Each and every class gives me more information I can use toward writing my books, and not just my English classes. I strive to get more than just the good grades but actually understand and retain the information for future use. The main thing is I have enjoyed my time back in school and enjoy all the new things I get to learn about and that’s the most you can ask for.
