Bloggering is hard

Sometimes I feel like bloggering and sometimes I don't.
I found out that my place of employment is closing for renovations so I will have my current job until about the 10th of July. Then I will move and find a new one which I am kind of excited about.

I feel like there are a couple of options that I could do but I wonder if they are feasible at this stage of my life. Am I too old to go back to school and finish at least a degree so I can get a better job with more marketable skills? I would like to graduate from college sometime in my lifetime. It appears that I will be supporting myself (thanks mom and dad for your help always!) for my life so I need to be better prepared.

Do I go at night and finish in like 5 years or pay COBRA insurance for the next 18 months and get as much done as I can?

Does anyone have an opinion? Thoughts? Would love to hear them.

My husband is working full-time and taking full-time college classes on-line from the local community college. Depending on your degree, you might be able to do the whole thing on-line. Then you could still work and not have to worry about the whole COBRA thing. Your COBRA payments could be more than tuition for school anyway. Good luck!

You're never too old to finish college. In all my classes at the University of Utah, there were always a pretty significant portion who were older, like 40+ years old. You can do it!

Just think of Grandma Moses...she didn't start painting until she was in her 70's! It's never, ever too late. I know you can do it, friend! :D

A least I'm not the only near-30 person I know that hasn't graduated from college.

I'd advise against COBRA. It's super expensive. I'd work and you can always check out online programs, especially for pre-reqs like English, Math, etc. And then there's night school.

Go to SCHOOL! What do you want to major in?
Side note, one of my favorite jobs ever was working in the bookstore for a short time when I was attending Kennesaw State Univ.
Have you ever worked in a library or bookstore? A bookstore might be too dangerous for you. Sounds like you would spend your entire paycheck at the bookstore.
