Off to University

I remember all too well how difficult it was to work up the courage to attend university as a 24 year old mature student, but at the same time how excitied I was at the prospect of embarking on a new stage in my life.  Wondering if I would fit in, make friends, pass my exams; and at the same time looking forward to the chance to study the things that fascinated me, to be the person I really wanted to be. 

Today is my Dad’s first day at university.  I can only imagine how it feels for him.

But one thing I know for certain is – I’m proud of you, Dad.  Work hard, and have fun.

  1. Good for him! My mother dropped out of college to marry my dad and regretted it for the rest of her days. (And she pushed education on us in compensation.) She talked about going back to finish her B.A. later in life, but never worked up the nerve.
