Someone send me an iPad – QUICK!

Yes, this is the university where I am studying.

Okay, I was well aware of the fact that getting a college education at 39-years-old while parenting 2 boys under 6 was going to be hard. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine it would be this hard.

I get that college isn’t supposed to be easy. Its supposed to be work. A lot of work. Fine. Totally prepared for that.

I just looked at my next class’ syllabus, and I seriously think they’re trying to kill us. I really wasn’t prepared for our workload to more than double for the 2nd time.

With the amount of reading we have to do in my upcoming class, an iPad – even an old one – could be a life-saver simply because I wouldn’t be tied to a desk for so many hours a day. Unfortunately, I’ve been watching eBay all morning, and everything is out of my price range.

If anyone out there is feeling a distinct need to get the new iPad…topped with some major generosity…send your old wi-fi capable one this way!

(After seeing our schedule, I’m totally not above begging!)

  1. Hi Cheryl….
    I’d love an iPad too… lol!! But I don’t think I’d ever get one. Congrats on your college journey, attaining a degree at any age is awesome!! I’ve taken a break from school this past year and I really need to get back… I always tell my self if my 1st year college algebra teacher can get a Masters at 52 years of age I can get my degree too while still being in my 30’s. A round of applause to you! ☺

    Thanks for taking the time to visit my page and leaving your comments… you have no-reply so I couldn’t email back!!

    You have a lovely day!

      I may take two weeks off this summer – the only real break we get is two weeks at Christmastime. Go for it girl! 🙂

    Just a thought …. I love the Nook Tablet – great for textbooks and you can access the Internet and there are wordprocessing apps. And Theo can play Angry Birds!

      To be honest, I’ve been longing to return to the Mac OS (iPads are a little different) for some time, but at this point, anything will do! 🙂
