thinking of starting college at age 47
I just turned 47 and regret not going to college. I did attend for a week when I was 19, then never went back. I was making, I thought, good money at the time, working construction. I am finding it more and more difficult to do the same work I have done for years decades in construction.
I am now seriously thinking of going to college to take the construction management course had started so many years ago. I do not know if it's the right thing, or smart thing to do, or if I am just going through a phase. But I have never given up on the idea of going to college, and every passing year it just seems to be more and more ridiculous. So here I am. Any suggestions?Noel's response
I think it is an excellent idea. When a man hits your age, it is time to move into planning and leadership/mentorship and let the younger men do the hard physical work. We no longer have the desire nor stamina to do the kind of work we did when we were younger.
The fact that your dream of going to college has stayed with you all these years tells me it is something you need to do.
Many people, myself included, have gone back to university in their forties, and are very glad they did. Have fun!
