Well, I told my wife over the weekend I was going to go back school to finish my degree. She is 100% supportive of it! Apparently she doesn't think Higher Education is so evil either.
Since my former major was computer programming and that was in the late 1990's, I was told I'd have to retake a bunch of classes since times have changed.
Since that's the case, I've decided to go to school for what I wanted to in the beginning. Science.
I will be starting to pursue my B.S. in Biology this summer semester. It will take me quite a while to finish since I have to work full time, but it's a start. Once I'm done with Biology, I would only have to take a handful of other classes to be awarded degrees in Physics and Chemistry as well.
Unfortunately, since I work for a local government organization, there are no tuition reimbursement programs I can take advantage of. I may have to get some loans or try for some small scholarships, but since I'm anticipating to be taking no more than 8 credit hours per semester, I can probably afford it out of pocket a little at a time.
