So, I’m going back to University and I have no idea how I feel about it.
I mean I do… but it’s not just one emotion I can pin down. I think because it’s been a year since I’ve been in education. And a year since, I entered into full blown “adulting”.
I don’t know what to expect… but I have the full advantage of having previously been to uni for 4 years. I’m sure it won’t be that bad.
In going back, I’m a lot wiser and more intuitive. In this next season, it’s about being focused on what the goal is.
As I’m writing this, I’m realising the main problem is fear. Fear of the unknown. It’s only natural to be scared of what you don’t know. But at the same time, I’m learning that fear shouldn’t overshadow me moving forward.
The gaps between educational institutions are very large and I think that’s what’s worrying me the most. A Master’s is a whole world away from an undergraduate degree. But I am trying to not let that intimidate me.
There is no need to be fearful of what I can’t control or don’t know. It takes away being able to enjoy my experiences in life.
So I’m going back. I’m going to enjoy the experience as best as I can and soak up as much knowledge as humanly possible.
Reading this blog https://csuglobal.edu/blog/overcoming-fear-of-going-back-to-school makes it easier to process everything and get perspective.
Even though the apprehension is still there, I know I’ll come out on the other side stronger.
