How many of you, in the middle of your life, became dissatisfied with your life and yourself, and decided to better yourself in some way? I have been unhappy at my job for years now, and longing to get out of it, and to do something else. For those that know me, know it would be either photography or landscaping. Something that requires more creativity. But I am the type of person that adapts to a certain mindset, and a certain way of life, and I fear change for the most part. Today my friend Marc started going off about how he is going to be doing fall classes and I should go too, and at first I was not in favor of the idea, but the more he talked about it, I started thinking about it, and wondered if I am silly for considering it? How will I afford the classes? I know I'll need my own supplies, how will I afford them? He said I should just take the basic classes and then maybe down the road I could afford to buy the supplies I'll need. I'm pretty sure I can just take night classes so I don't need to cut work short and I can probably work around my pet sitting, but at this stage in my life, I guess I'm in a rut, and I would like to get others' opinions on if this would be worth my while. I never went to college and didn't do very well in school, and to be honest, the thought of school makes me ill. I still have nightmares that I am late to school and can't find my locker or class! Still, I feel something needs to happen! I went online to MATC but it's so overwhelming to look at. I don't even know where to start. Any thoughts? Thanks!
