January 23, 2012 at 3:33 PMHow does one balance school-work and the need to practice? Okay, I'm an old college student, but I made the decision to go back to school 2 years ago when my husband was unemployed/underemployed for nearly a year, and I couldn't find a job at all. Since I was living in Kokomo at the time, and the nearest school with a music program was 60 miles away, and since I needed to study something that is in demand on the job market, I decided to forgo finishing my music degree and study health care administration (ironically, I now live in Huntington, home of Huntington University, which has an active music program). I will graduate in just over 1 year. The problem is that I am taking a required statistics class that is kicking my behind. Homework takes so much time that I don't have time or energy for anything else. I have 3 weeks left in this class, and I hope I pass it so I don't have to take it again!
