Jumping Back In.
I spent the entire day with my stomach on knots. It was a crazy-competitive program and I got accepted! But how could I ask Shug to take on another 2 years of lean living and stress? This program is in an ever-expanding field, but I have a degree in hand that could lead to lucrative jobs in a sadsack economy. I was so looking forward to not being in school, yet I was mourning my last days of academic discussion and discourse. This program is something I really want to do. And be good at.
Two years is such a loooong time, but it seems really short in the grand scheme of things. Student loans are the bane and the lifeblood of my education. I worried that my brain isn't going to be as sharp as it needs to be with the difficult coursework, but I feel I can work my butt off to get it to the level it needs to be. I pretty much worried about everything.
So I jumped back in. I accepted the position this morning and I start in the fall. Two more years, or 21 months if we want to be exact, and then, maybe then, I'll be ready for adulthood;)! Have you ever taken a leap in a different direction? I only want to hear the positive stories;)!
