I am sitting here a nervous weepy mess.
I don't know what got into me this morning. I just went onlin and filled out the application to the college that I flunked out of right out of high school.
It is my dream of where to finish my Music Ed but OMG the cost. I haven't submitted the app yet but it is complete. It may also be too soon.
I also emailed the Music professor and asked to meet with her.
She will be the one that would decide scholarship $ and ultimately wether I can go there or not. She was not there when I was there the first time which is probably a good thing. And I have done extremely well since going back but still my GPA my last semeter there was a 1.11. Not good.
This is the essay I wrote--feedback appreciated. I just cried and cried while writing it.
Finishing my degree in Music Education at Florida Southern College is a very personal, long awaited, aspiration of mine. When I finished High School, my dream was to be a music teacher. Unfortunately, my first attempt was unsuccessful, school was difficult and I was not focused on my goal.
Over time, I realized the opportunity I had wasted and now with a family to support finishing seemed insurmountable. I was blessed after the birth of my twins to be able to stay home with them. Last fall they entered Preschool and I realized that it was now or never to finish my degree.
Two of my four children have Pervasive Development Disorder; school is a struggle for them. I want to be a role model to my children, teach them that if you just keep reaching for your dream, that anything is possible in spite of their disabilities.
