I took the plunge and enrolled in online classes. I've been at it since August 31, taking 4 classes consisting of a total of 13 credits. So far, so good. But this one class - Excel - is demanding and extremely time consuming. I doubt I will ever use Excel simply as a way of thumbing my nose at it once the semester is complete.
I enrolled in these classes because I have found technology is passing me by at an astounding rate. Instead of sitting back on my haunches, I decided this was the best alternative. And frankly, I've surprised myself.
I wasn't sure I could still learn. Once you reach a certain age and place in your life, structured class learning isn't something you expect to embrace. But I am thoroughly enjoying this. I find myself eager to learn and this is a wonderful change from my youth.
