I’m Returning To College

I’m Returning To College. Hey everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I am excited to share that I officially return to college in August 2021. “I am thrilled! I even cried when I received the email with the job offer. You have no idea how difficult this journey has been for me. If you’ve been following my story through my previous posts, such as “The End of An Era,” you’ll understand.”

I’m Returning To College

Why Have I decided to go back?

The simple answer is It’s Now or Never! Next week, my mum is leaving the UK, which means I will be here alone with my daughter. Companies are closing down, so few day jobs will be in town. Not for now, anyway. If I try to apply next year, I am 4 years behind. Plus, I’m not getting younger and want to give my daughter and myself a better future. It is a risk I am taking as the coronavirus seems to be affecting more students than last year. I hope we do a blended learning schedule where I can study online safely at home.

What course?

So, I applied for an HNC (Higher National Certificate) in Administration and Information Technology in college. If you read a previous post, I spoke about getting into college for an HND (Higher National Diploma) in Administration and Information Technology in 2019. Still, I had to drop out and get a job due to financial issues. I was very heartbroken and felt like I had let my daughter down or ruined her future.

Luckily, I had a well-paid job to help support my little family. I did have plans to go to college in 2020, but then Covid-19 happened. So, this year, I decided to re-apply, hoping I get accepted. Will you look at that – I got in!

Feelings?

I started this journey in 2006 when I finished Secondary School and went to college to study Administration because I wanted to work in an office environment. However, due to life circumstances, I couldn’t move on to complete the course. Based on my results, the course lecturer told me I would never progress to the Higher National level. That broke my heart; no words can explain how I felt.

Despite everything, I decided not to give up and fight hard. I went back and forth to college, studying everything and anything I got my hands on. And now, finally, I’m in! I can see myself in my graduation gown and on stage collecting my Diploma in 2023, and wow, it’s a fantastic feeling already. You all pray for me. I’m going in and not coming out without my Diploma. If there are any tools or resources out there that I can use to help me through, of which you may know, please let me know. I need all the support that I can get.
