All the Things

I start my next grad degree tomorrow. 17 years after the first time I went to University, I’m going back. It’s a bit strange – they give you the same student ID and I am surprised at how little effort it took to dredge up that 8 digit number.

Everyone keeps asking if I am excited, and I suppose I am, but mostly I’m terrified.

I’m worried I won’t be able to balance class work and a part time Research Assistant job and a very full time job. I’m worried that I won’t be able to manage the academic rigour.

I’m worried, like my first MBA team, they will hate me. I will be 19 years older than many of my classmates. That’s a world of difference right there.

I’m worried about all the things.

Exactly like every other kid going to school.

    I hope you had a good first day back to school! I recently went back to school with people 15 years younger than me. I was so nervous but then it was fine. I hope the same for you. 🙂

    Seeing back to school photos on social media can sometimes be painful, but I LOVED seeing yours!! Your nerves are totally understandable, but you are a rock star for doing this, & I daresay the other students will learn as much from you as from the profs. 🙂 Have a fabulous year!
