Back to School, Back to School, to Prove to Dad that I’m not a Fool... (not really)

As I’ve mentioned in several posts over several months, my wife and I are going back to school!

 

It’s very exciting for us. We dated in HS, broke up then met again several years later in a college computer lab... so here we are 14 years into our relationship and just had our 12th anniversary, which by the way I re-proposed and she said yes. We are making plans to renew our vows sometime next year with the whole family.

 

This is going to shock most of you... but it must be all the Pastors on this forum have made an impact on me, both my wife and I are pursuing degrees in Religious studies.

 

Crazy I know.

 

Still shocked?

 

Me too!!

 

I’ll still be the same Shankster, but hopefully in a few years I’ll get to (for real) help people. It’s something I’ve been kicking down the road for several years. I finally just got the kick in the pants I needed to make it happen.

 

Cheers Everyone!

Wasn’t sure if I’d announce this on here but I wanted to let you all know why my forum contributions will be less over the next while.

 

Congrats man...golf course wedding?  Might have some wedding (golfer) Crashers if that's the case 😁🤣😅

Haha. That’d be sweet, I’d totally allow Vince and Owen to come crash it.

 

Probably just at the place of our original wedding back in Michigan.

Only if you are The Godfather.

Could have been those 2 iron stingers made her say yes. That or the hydro-Pearl finish.

Good for you! We could probably help a bit on that class work if you get stuck. My Greek remains strong - Hebrew not so much.

I’m in both of your corners regardless

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Thanks Rev! Appreciate it! I’m sure I’ll have questions.

  • 1 month later...

Congratulations on your online classes and offers! It sounds crazy, but it's worth it! My memories of the school are just https://edubirdie.com/college-term-paper and not romantic stories))) And although then the college term paper turned out to be very useful, I would not refuse such memories.

Thanks Tony.

We are about 7 weeks into classes, it’s been challenging for sure. But had I known that I could take online classes so easily I’d have a few Doctoral degrees by now. I was always a fan of continuous learning to keep the brain sharp, so this is the jumpstart I needed to get back on track.

Would I rather be at a brick and mortar school? Absolutely, I think I would learn more, but this has been extremely fun and exciting... so far.

Now I just have to find time for a round of Golf.

Great comment - of course brick and mortar, face to face is the ideal but for many it’s impractical, it’s great that there are online options.

I like to attend at least one continuing Ed class each year - this year I was able to do a great one online as well as another one in a more traditional setting.

Continued good luck on your class work!
