    Yep, you heard right, I'm going back school. I have an associates degree in electronics from DeVry so it's only going to take me 6 semesters(2years) to get my bachelors. I'll be getting a bachelors in Biomedical Engineering. I start on March 3rd. I'll be attending classes in the evening after work. I don't know what my schedule will be yet but I will adjust my training around my school schedule. I still plan on doing the state meet and seniors this year. If you want more out of life then you have to make it happen. It's just not going to fall out of the sky into your lap.

    I'm doing it but I quit work and life to go back for physical therapy. Good luck man! Your motivation in training I'm sure transfers to other parts of your life as well.
