I don’t know why I thought going back to school at 38 would be easy but it’s not. It has been hard for me to manage my time between work, family, and my studies.
Work takes up a large part of my day. Even though I have changed my schedule from full time to part time I am still in the office five days a week. I work at least 30 hours per week, 10 hours less than my original schedule. I am a processor and office manager for a very busy mortgage company. I process loan files, answer phones, greet clients, handle all correspondence, and process receivable accounts. At times all that can be super demanding. It is rare that I find any time to myself at work where I can take a break, catch up on personal things, or even do homework. As much as I wish I didn’t have to work I know that even through the hectic
Trying to juggle family while going back to school at 38 years old has been very hard. I am older now so that means that my children are older too. I no longer have little ones who demand so much of my attention. My children range between the ages of 19 and 16. I have one child in college and four in high school. You would think that things would be calmer and move more at a slower pace but things do not. Between football, band, booster club meetings, and kids’ work schedules things at home are very hectic. By the time, I get home from work
