I am not an apprentice as such.
I’ve worked since I was 17 years old.
But after a life-changing event that taught me ‘life is too short’,
I went back to school as an adult student to fulfill a life long dream.
I spent three years studying for my Communications Degree,
graduating last year.
I am back at school part – time,
I study for the same college I completed my Degree at,
but I study online because I also work weird hours.
Today I returned a library book on campus.
I actually needed the book for my studies.
I had renewed it twice before and tried to renew it again online.
But it wouldn’t let me : (
Apparently you can’t renew a book more than twice.
I went up to campus and walked into the student Hub to return the library book.
Immediately a feeling of nostalgia came over me.
It felt like I was returning home.
Ohhhhhh! I miss studying full time.
The weird thing is that studying for my Degree was really difficult for me.
I struggled to comprehend…everything!
I was also the same age as most of my fellow students parents.
But I loved learning something new every day.
I loved working with like-minded people.
I loved having my creativity supported,
and I loved strategising ideas.
I really, really miss studying full time.
I did the “student thing”.
I returned my library book in the return slot,
and went and loaned another copy of the same book : )
