Is it to late?

I have a confession to make.

This whole university process with my daughter has made me jealous.

It has reminded me how much I wanted a degree.

University was never an option for me when I was younger . Life just got in the way. Now reading my daughters course literature and hearing her talk about lectures has really tore at my heart.

Don’t get me wrong I am so proud of my baby girl out there achieving her dream.

I’m just left with a lot of what if’s.

What if I went back to studying?

What if it didn’t work?

What if I failed?

Am I to old to achieve this dream?

Is it possible?

Can I afford it?

I don’t know right now all I do know is that I want to achieve something so desperately.

Is it to late for me to achieve my dreams?

What do you guys think?

    I went to university aged 30, I had no A levels or GCSEs so I did an access course first, I passed the access and was doing fine with my degree, moneywise it was tight but student finance is a great help and there are often bursaries too. During my second year fell pregnant unexpectedly with daughter number 4 and back issues and pre-natal depression conspired against me, and I failed.

    I haven’t gone back since, I’m enjoying my time with my daughter and intend to go into business for myself so I may never return to finish my degree, but I have zero regrets about my choices, my time at university was an amazing and emotional experience that I wouldn’t change for the world.

    I think what I’m trying to say is that nothing bad will come out of trying, if you pass you’ll have your achievement, if you fail you’ll dust yourself off as always and carry on, either way at least you went on the ride.

    Good luck!
