Multimedia Writing portion...

| 7 Comments
To say that I'm really not sure what to write for the "writing portion" of my Multimedia Projects would be an understatement.  The fact that I've jotted notes down, bounce a number of ideas off the wall and still come up with nothing, well, it's infuriating.

"You're 27-years-old, dammit!  You should have this done already.  How the hell do you hold down a job, play in a band, pay bills and yet you can't write what appears to be a simple writing essay?  And it's not even a LONG essay?"

The feeling of being in over my head sinks in yet again and at the last minute I decided to write about this.  This fear.  It's been a recurring theme for me of late.  Will I go back to school?  What the hell is it going to be like for me?  How will I do this while working full-time?  What have I gotten myself in to?

I've spent most of my life working and never took the time to get the education I wanted and now that education is in my grasp and I'm going to let fear hinder me?  Nope.  I've stepped up before in my life and gotten a number of things accomplished on my time and on my terms.  This is just another stepping stone to furthering my life and NOT the end itself but an end to a means.  I know what I want and what it's going to take for me to get there.

"Thank you very much for growing a pair and finally putting down this idea that's been rattling around for God knows how long!"

You're welcome, me.  You're welcome.

You grab that fear by the b@#$% and show it who's boss. Getting back into school, we old heads could tell these young fellars a thing or two about the importance of sticking to education. Living a working mans existence is really much simpler than the life of a student and adult. Student requires more from you than employee. The people that should be afraid are the students who don't take their education seriously and soon become unprepared employees. When they're struggling professionals they're struggling with the easy part of life.

As a 36-year-old student, I concur.

This essay really makes those of us who are young understand you a little more. Many of us do not have to support ourselves while attending college. You're dedication to your education must be extreme. It is very admirable. I love your "get up and go" of sorts. This sounds a little like a psychiatric evaluation (so I apologize), but you must be a really strong person. I do not know if I would have the ability to do what you accomplish every day.

Mr. Moore, I'm glad you concur. The world is in dire need of truly "adult" students. Not adult in age, just maturity. For instance Mr. Beckage has had little trouble readjusting to a student role, even at his tender docile age of 54. You, a strapping grown lad of 36, have impressed me with you ardor and perspective.

I defintiely agree. There've been many students that I've met who just don't seem to be ready for college or take it seriously at all. I definitely have my doubts at times as well haha, midterms, 12 page essays etc. Sometimes I think it might just be easier to work but I think we all need to keep in mind that it'll pay off even if it drives us batshit along the way haha.

You really do prove your point. This example which you state will indeed impact the freshman students to get the act together. Student need to understand that adulthood starts at this age. It's time to start acting the age.
