older and wiser

As Melissa's teenagers are ordering caps and gowns and senior rings and letterman jackets and completing college applications, she is joining in on the fun and going back to school too!

She has her student ID, her parking pass and books. She is going for a degree in computer geekology and posted on Facebook looking for a TI-83 whatever that is, it is all geek to me.

She has completed nontraditional student orientation, was shown the adult student study hall (no teenagers allowed!), and given her official Kennesaw State University OWL tee-shirt - Older Wiser Learner!

Melissa has some college courses under her belt already, picked up here and there. She also has a lifetime of common sense, all earned and paid for, so maybe she will end up teaching some classes herself.

The once lost teen years are found again, recaptured as an older and wiser Melissa - congrats!
