Why 30 is not the new 20

For the first week of my college life I walked around my college dazed and confused about the age gap and how I was supposed to relate to these kids and make them be a part of my life for the next two years. I wanted my college to mean something – afterall my first college experience I was a commuter, I never stayed, class was done; I went home. I never had the pleasure of knowing what it was like to join into things and in all reality my first college was the Art Institute of Philadelphia, there where no clubs, just classes and some kids in dorms. But remember I am 44 years old so college life to me is old- and really I don’t have the time. I have a family at home, a child, dinner to make, house to clean and a ton of work for a 44 year old brain to handle. But still I wanted it to memorable.

So I have talked with many teachers and leaders and think that I might join the Art club and volunteer.. not sure. This week has been tiring as I have two online classes, one is accelerated and the other a nice normal pace and then 3 other on campus classes. The one piece of of information I would love to share is a video I had to watch from one of my professors; a TED Talk video where Meg Jay talks about 20 somethings and how their life is more precious for them to gain control now than wait until there 30. I hope all of you who have children in there 20’s will watch this and make them watch this as well.
