Hi, I would like to write about myself. I am a man with two grown kids; one has two kids of his own. My daughter is getting married in October. They both have a good education; my wife has a good education, why don't I have one? I worked hard all my life. I always tried to better myself by going to night school; I tried so many times at different courses.
I hurt myself in ninety-seven and couldn't go back to work; I was in lots of pain. I spend a lot of time by myself just sitting around rocking in the rocking chair. I didn't want to do anything because I was in so much pain. I had to keep a diary for Compensation so I was doing lots of writing and reading.
I was reading a newspaper one day and saw an ad at Landmark East School for an Adult Evening Class. It was a good course. I had to drive up to Wolfville four nights a week. I did that from September to April. It was a long winter. The funding only lasted that winter, so I tried to go back to work. I didn't last too long before I hurt myself again.
So I was back home again in that old rocking chair. Someone told me that the library had some people that would help me, so I went and got a tutor. We lasted three years together. I was sad when she left; my whole dreams seem so far away. Now I am attending the Cunard Learning Center. I have been going there for some time now; they have some good instructors there. I hope to go to the Community College in September. I already have a trade, I was lucky to get into it way back a long time ago. Now you need a good education to do just about anything. I would like to be a tutor some day or a motivational speaker but you can't be one of those things until you have a grade twelve education, I hope to get it in the next couple of years.
I just had my sixtieth birthday and I am still dreaming.
