    Yup I made up my mind it's done not going back on my decision as I am returning to school, alot of people make fun of my decision as I am 30 years old and I haven't finished my high school yet and I don't want to work for a Collection Agency and being a Collector all my life this is why I am going straight to college and then maybe University. I learned alot working as a Waiter and as a Collector, hence education it never gets old.

    Way to go! I'll be starting school myself this fall, Jr. College to be exact, I'm thinking of going for 2-3 years then maybe going to an art school, because I've always enjoyed painting and drawing comic strips. I'm thinking about maybe drawing comics for a living.

    Anyways, congrats man!:thumb

    Good man. Education is the key.

    I got my MA back in 2009. Maybe one day I will be cool enough to be called a "doctor." Am I a master now?

    Good Luck. Going back to school and getting your degree is very important. I had to take a few years off of mine due to illness and other thing but I just got my degree and I am very proud of myself. When your done you can look back and be like I did it and feel proud.

    I'm finishing up my BS in Management Studies at 36, so good on you. I recommended you pick up The Bedford Handbook and start with some writing courses.

    had to look at your location for second...i keep forgetting that Canadians refer to College and University differently from us.

    look, i was 32 when i began working my way back into University (as you put it.) i paid off debts, i chased down documents and had to undergo re-evaluations.
    add to it i was having vision problems and taking care of my dad.
    i managed to take 3 math courses in 2 semesters and work around obstacles.

    the point is that, if you want it bad enough, there's not much that can keep you from making it happen. don't lose sight of the goal and all the best. you will do just fine.

    Yeah its because we typically refer to them WRONG. Its not so much him. Colleges have "college" in the name, Universities have "Universities" in the name. Its pretty much that simple.

    I've got a pal up at uWaterloo, seems to have some good times up there! That's near you right?
