I appreciate the words. I will be 37, when I go back in the fall. At least that's the projection. I will be looking like Rodney Dangerfield in Back to School. Well, not that old.

LOL! That's how I felt, too. I thought there wouldn't be many people my age when I started back, because I hadn't been in college in 10 years. I was pleasantly surprised at how many 30-, 40-, and even 50-somethings there were doing the same thing that I was doing. Good luck to you. You'll do fine, I'm sure.

At LA Tech, you never can tell. Some professors may be attempting to speak in English, but they don't do it very well. LOL

Heard about them, but never went there. Did you see the part where I was in EE. All we had time to do was study. Yea, you've seen us around campus, not having fun. Plus, drove back and forth from Shreveport 5 days a week for three years. Not much time left after that. I could tell you where all the cops hung out between Ruston and Shreveport though. LOL

Don't let it bother you when the girls call you old man though. I started back to school at LSUS when I was 33 and graduated Tech when I was 38. So I know all about it. LOL

LOL! Yeah, I read that part, but I know many electrical and mechanical engineers that went out and partied. Somehow they graduated, but it took them longer than most. haha.

The first time I attempted Tech was 96 through 97. It wasn't my bag, so I dropped out. I guess things happen for a reason, because I love being there now.

HAHA! Yeah, I try not to let it bother me. One good thing is that I look younger than I actually am, so I can still pull dates from some of those younger women. It's like the song by The Beastie Boys says, "College Girls Are Easy"
