I start a new chapter today. I am seriously scared, nervous, and excited all at once! Eeek.
I already have graduated college once, and am thisclose to having my Master's, but something just didn't feel right with my job and I decided I wanted a change. Last March I started the application process to go back to college and was accepted into the accelerated option of a program I wanted to get into which is only a year long. Awesome! I start classes today.
After accepting and looking into the intense schedule I had to take the scary leap of faith and quit my
current job. Which in the world today is downright scary, but you have to take risks, right??
Yes, yes you do.
Leaving my old job was bittersweet. It was never exactly what I wanted but I LOVED the kids and I LOVED my co-workers, and I was there for 4 years. Today would have been my first day back after summer vacation, and honestly, I have been having a little bit of a tough time with it that I am not there. I keep checking my work email even though I don't work there anymore just cause I am used to it! It just feels strange. Like so weird.
Soooo today I start a new school year back as the student and not the teacher! I hope I remember how to write papers and take tests, I have been out for a while now. I am SO excited to have this opportunity and think that the new career fits really well with me, but starting at a new school is always scary,
even when you are 29.... I feel like a 5 yr old, but I hope I make new friends and that my teachers are nice :)
It is going to be a busy year, but I can't wait to see what it brings, wish me luck!!
