For years I had a recurring dream that I didn’t graduate from college. Maybe because it took me so long is the reason. I went to LPN Nursing School a couple of years after high school, then decided I wanted to go to college a few years after that. To learn was my only reason. Well it took a while, since I started out at a state school at night, then gradually and eventually quit my job as a nurse and went to school full-time.
I didn’t learn much that I remember from college. But I did increase my proficiency and stamina for long and large assignments, which has lasted to this day.
This diploma is my reminder, should I have another dream, that yes I graduated. It hangs on my office wall next to my computer.
