Dark clouds still come

I have completed my 2nd week of school. It was definitely an eye-opening experience. The hustle and bustle of checking each class, each day - several times a day - to make sure I didn't overlook an assignment was stressful. But this is what I signed up for. After two introduction posts, two quizzes, and … Continue reading Dark clouds still come

Why not go back?

I can't believe I am starting college again on Monday. I received my Associates in Criminal Justice back in 2016 when I was 47 years old. And to be quite honest, I'm very content with just that.

I am miserable!

It's been a long time, friends. I haven't been busy. I haven't been working on things. I haven't been occupied. In fact, it has been the complete opposite.
