Part-time for both. Four classes and twelve hours a week. It may not sound like much, but it was a lot for me. I'll be going to school full-time starting this summer and likely working 20+ hours a week.

That's nice. Therefore you'll have at least a little stress off your shoulders and you can put all your focus in just your home life & school.



It actually is driving me nuts not going to school but I know it's best if I just wait till DD starts, I think it'll be much easier.

I think it's fucked up because it devalues his experience. It tells him that what he is doing isn't as important as what she does every day when they're equally important.

Well, they do say it's not really a job if you love what to do. :wink:



You mean, school as in college or school as in kinder - high school. I see a lot of you are talking about college/university and stuff. I was meaning more of like high school work.



I don't think my mother would ever compare work & college/university to one another since she knows how stressful it is. I remember going to college and my mom doing stuff that would relieve my stress off, lol.

The school I taught at was so vastly unlike other schools it even wore ME out!



School can be tiring. But it doesnt excuse you from necessary house/home-life work.



I don't know if one is more tiring than the other, but school can be absolutely more tiring if you are really into it.

If felt the same way before I started taking classes again. I missed school so much and was going crazy! I started taking prereqs last February, 1-2 at a time while working around 32 hours a week. DD was 9 months when I stared. Might not sound like much, but four of my classes were lab science classes (intro anatomy, chemistry, and two semesters of anatomy and physiology) and it took a lot of balancing. Next year, on the other hand, is going to be insane. I'm applying to nursing school and it's a one year post-bachelors degree program. As difficult as it will inevitably be, it's just a year and we can push though it!

I miss school so much too. I love writing papers, studying, all that good stuff. Makes my brain feel good. :)



Still though, how exciting. I hope all goes as planned for you.

Maybe it's nerdy, but it is nice to learn new things and study again. :D
Thank you!!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
