good for you going back to school. You rock.

Just remember you are never to old. When I was in grad school. I know I over did the school thing. The oldest student in my class was in his mif 70's. He started university after he retired, and took a full course load with us young ones.

Really hard skipping a class when you know the 70 something will be there come snow, rain, or sunshine.

I loved biology to, but ended up taking history and theology.

Now work as an Executive asistant in a High Tech recruitung firm. LOL.
