It's Official!  I'm Going Back To School!

This is all William Johnson's fault. Day after day -- week after week -- month after month -- he consistently posts some of the most beautiful and stunning photos that I've ever seen online.  (Be sure to click on the link provided to enjoy his post today!)

When I had the chance to sit in on a photography class at our state's Real Estate convention, I jumped right in. It only made me want more! I had visions of William's photos dancing in my head.

For that reason, I've decided to take a photography class at Salem Community College.  The problem is that the college requires an English prerequisite. I have to take a placement test next Weds. to see which English class I will need to take.

(Shheeesh!  I really just wanted to take the photography class and that's it.)

Well, they say things happen for a reason......and I've always said that I wanted to finish my degree.  It looks like now is the perfect time. 

After I complete the placement test, I can officially register for classes. 

(I wonder what I should wear on my first day of school?)

I liked this!  Good luck and good for you!  I'm so busy trying to get my CRS that this will be for next year, but you'll be great.  Best wishes for a good weekend.

Thanks, MaryKay!  I am really, really excited!  Hopefully, I'll remember some of what I learned in high school and college from years ago.

Chris:  A prerequisite for a photography class??  And it had to be English?  Why not one of the other languages that we find the instructions to our cameras written in?  I applaud you for taking this step even when all you wanted was to make 'PRETTY PICTURES".

Hey Chris - maybe you'll be able to test out of taking the English class.  I'm sure you've got that down pat! Ask about it.  I tested out of a bunch of classes a long time ago - they were so lame and made for 18 year olds!  

Look forward to seeing your new photograph skills!

Gwynn...I thought the same thing! 

Hi, Anna!  How are you tonight?  I am hoping to test out of the english so I can focus on the photography.  I hope I learn ALOT!

Thanks so much, Donna!  (although brushing on up my english skills might help me with my blogging skills, huh?)

Seems strange to have prereq for a photography class but good for you for going back to school.  Good luck.
