    So I am about to become a mature student eeeek! I was a rubbish immature student so this is definitely outside any comfort zone. My lovely 8 year old son is dyslexic and is struggling. I thought how can I help him to not cry when books are put in front of him. I decided that to show him with a bit of practice anything can happen. I've always been really proud to say 'I don't need a degree' because I have always had great jobs but actually I need to show and be an example to my small boy who cries in frustration because he can't do something. His dyslexia will never be an excuse but it is a 'thing'. I fully intend to graduate with a view that if I can bloomin' do it he can do anything!. So here I am about to start in September an HE Course as an introduction into an English Degree. The more I have been investigating I am now considering English and Creative Writing .... the list is endless! I am also literally nervous of picking up a pen although I did write an essay straight off just before my interview to get onto my HE Course. Rambling now but any advise for someone in middle age about to become a student when I was never a student in my teens would be appreciated....
