Well, I have four children attending college, one in middle school, one husband teaching college, one daughter-in-law teaching middle school, and guess what? I go to school too. I don't wear a backpack though and I still have my surgical boots on my feet.
I noticed that if I don't sit down beside someone in my classes, NO ONE will sit beside me. I usually am in the class a few minutes before it starts and even in a large FULL class there are empty seats on both sides.
I am careful to shower! I brush my teeth and comb my hair! I was thinking it was the surgical boots. In discussion with Konrad he says I am irrelevant to the college crowd. They are there to obtain their education or hook up with a date/spouse. I have nothing to offer them. Should I get a cool backpack and some Tom's shoes? I started moving to a new seat everyday to see if I can't trick someone into sitting by me. NOPE. A girl actually moved when I sat down beside her. :(
Well, besides feeling like a contagious germ, I am enjoying my classes. It is fun to be on campus with Audrey, Erin and Dad. Always a funny experience to share together.
