Today we have the combination of Linda’s Just Jot it January and One-Liner Wednesday.
You’re a student? Well, good on you!
I am used to the looks of surprise now when I introduce myself as a Student Nurse at work. I can almost hear them thinking, look at her, she’s no spring chicken, a bit old to be a student!
In fact, someone asked me how old I was yesterday out of curiosity. I was not offended, as she was just curious as to what had made me decide to start studying at this time of my life. I have had quite a few similar conversations since I started my degree and all of them positive. It is lovely to know that one person that I spoke to (at the gym), is actually thinking of going back to study after I told her how much I was enjoying it and how important it is to me.
That makes it even more worthwhile!
I’m full of admiration Eddie!
Thanks, Daffy. That is lovely of you. xx
See sis. You are an inspiration !
Well, kind of, with regards to it never being too late to go after what you want.Thanks, Sis! 🙂
It certainly does Sis, see not only are you particular you are an inspiration!? ???
Thank you Sis. I am happy to be able to inspire others to go after what they want, however old they are. 🙂
A great mission ??
Yes, indeed 🙂
Congratulations on being brave and determined enough to go back to school. It’s awesome that you have inspired someone else to at least think about it.
I know! If I can do it anyone can. 🙂
At 40, I was pusuing an associate’s in accounting at the community college. One day in physics lab, I taught a fellow student how to tie a slip-knot. She said, “Thanks, DAD!”
HAHA! Oh no, that’s a backhanded compliment. Mind you, I am older than some of my groups’ mothers!!
You are one of those wonderful role models that we are never too old to start what we feel passionate about. In a workshop they told about a woman who started studying psychology in her mid 60’s and opened up successfully her own practice with 70!
Thank you so much, Sis. I love it that there are no age restrictions anymore to being able to study. 🙂
I agree, sis! Enjoy realizing your dream!!
Thank you dear Sis ☺
You are most welcome, sis ?
never too old to go back to school or learn something new. Glad you’re enjoying your studies
Thanks Jill. Yes you are right☺
This is me!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
