What have I done

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.Click here to enlarge

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.

I will be keeping my fingers crossed for you. I hope they recognize your effort and passion. My dh is student teaching right now, he is a music ed. major, and he is enjoying himself.

Let us know how your meeting goes with the prof.

Her responce-- I play in a high level wind ensemble where she is the co conductor, but I wasen't sure she would know who I was. Ack...she remebered.


Dear Lori,



I would enjoy talking to you about FSC music ed. program. My first available time is Tuesday, March 1, after 10:30 or Thursday the 3rd any time up to 2:00. You would need to apply to the school of course, and audition for the music department. We do have music scholarships available and we like to give them out. Also, the music ed. program is state certified and it is quite comprehensive. Let me know if any of these dates work for you.



See you Sunday.
