I got comments back on my first paper. Why was I worried again?
"The writing itself is tremendous--truly collegiate." :blush:

1. Yaaaaay! LeftyMom!!!
:bounce: I remember when I went back to college at 30 and thought I would drown. My very first paper in Comp class (on the O.J. jury) had "Do Query Parade Magazine-- I think they would use this".... So I did-and they DID! It was the single most self defining moment in my life. I can be a mom and a student as well. :hug: Way to go!!! :toast:

2. Cool!
The only thing he told me he wants me to change (other than a minor punctuation issue) was to define some terms that I had assumed were commonly understood.

3. Well, congratulations.
Why WERE you worried, anyway?

Very well done, my dear.

4. Way cool, LM!
I do understand the worry though. When I went back to college, I was so nervous about taking my first test that I called my mom before I went to school! (I aced the test, BTW).

Anyway, good on you! That's great! :bounce:

7. I'm pretty relieved.
I feel a lot better about starting the rest of my classes tomorrow now.

8. Yeah, I haven't had a class since I got pregnant,
and the kid is 5 now. I was worried I'd be rusty.
