I returned to school as an adult (12 years after my undergrad) to do my Masters and this was incredibly challenging. First, online/distance education was a new skill to learn. Also, I was working part-time at the college and, at the same time, I was working full-time outside of education. Unexpectedly, my full-time job took me on some travels all over Ontario which meant I was parenting two busy boys by Skype and trying to get a handle on some comprehensive courses. It took some organization and time management, but like the water and the rocks above, when there is resistance you have to find another way around and keep going. Eventually I made it through.
