    Why would people look down on you for going back to school? Would you look down on someone who wants to go back to school and learn skills? Why would you??

    I think it's a great thing to learn and to learn all the time. Going back to school shows that you're serious about learning and you really want to learn. In western countries, most graduate students are mature students. They often work and study at the same time. Some people even go back to the universities to get a degree after they're retired - at the age of 65! The schools aren't just for young people.

    Don't worry about what people would think of you or how they would look at you. Do something you truly believe in and do something that you think is right for you and will make you proud. Do something that will satisfy and challenge yourself. People's worries often solely come from themselves. Forget about other people. Take the course for yourself because you want to and because you need to.

    Go for it, man!

    I am helping an 80 years old lady learn computer and I think there are some more to come. This 80 years old lady wants to use computer to make her family tree. She is so motivated even though she has short-term memory problem. How old are you? 36? You are far too young to say you are old!

    No one can look down on you except yourself.

    Be who you are, say what you want, and act the way you want. It's your life, you are the man . It's ok if you choose their own way to lead your life, then I will LOOK DOWN ON YOU.

    If it's something worth doing, why care what others think of you?

    At 36, your experience and wisdom might be something others do admire.
