I hated school I was always the insecure one and felt like everyone was looking at me. I never got great grades but I didn't apply my self either. I didn't graduate with my class and graduated two years late because of an injury. I basically skipped two grades and only had to take two classes to graduate to me that was a dream. But in those two classes being out of school for a year or so, I did apply my self, I enjoyed it and I got A's. But I had hated School since kindergarten, so after HS, college just was not an option. In my mind that I could achieve and accomplish was not possible. I have tired a few times to take classes. I get info and never follow through or I sign up and lose money on travel school or training classes. I get to scared I can't do it. I am intelligent and I learn quickly and have self taught myself everything I know now about computers, bookkeeping, etc. Now that I am looking at unemployment, I am needing more skills for my career. The online college classes thing seems to be my out as far as fear of being around others goes. But I am still scared to go to the college and see what I need to do. Can I apply my self, can I succeed this time, can I get at least to the signed up and doing it part? I never took SAT's or CLAST or any entrance test in HS. So I don't even know where to begin. I just ordered the book TABE to get started. Has anyone taken online classes? And if so can you tell me more about it? Does anymore get scared about schooling. I feel like a nut case and so stupid, I am 43 for God sakes, I keep telling my self to grow up.
