Hi my name is Ruth Albright. I am studing to be a vetranarian. I am a mother of 3 children ages 17, 16, and 12. I homeschool 2 of them. I work here on campus in the computer lab and also another job outside of school. I have been out of school for 20 years and am finally pursuing my dreams. I find it very interesting to come back to school and meet fellow students from all walks of life. it has truley been a great experience for me thus far. I enjoy spending time with my children on my free time, we enjoy taking nature walks or going shopping :)

I really enjoyed our book holding on so far, it is a glimpse in other people's lives and gives us a sense of who they were. I really enjoyed Robert Shields longest diary. Although some people may think he is crazy for writting a min. by min. account of his life to him this is something he enjoys, just like a hobby this is his. I myself would not want to spend every waking minute accounting for my every move, but to Mr. Shields this is somehow his life,his passion, his dream and who are we to question if he is sain or not as long as it makes him happy and he is doing what he feels is important then so be it. I mean who knows we all may do things in our lives at one point or other that people may find strange but as long as it makes us happy who cares.


  1. Hey Ruth, I think is amazing that you are going back to school and I'm sure you will enjoy going to school because I enjoy going to school and meeting new people from many places.

  2. I agree with you that Holding on is an amazing book, the part that you can glimpse peoples live is one of the things that the book is wonderful about.
