Back to school!
As our family is in the process of a lot of growth and change, I am also getting ready to take a huge leap for myself. Here I am - turning 30 years old at the end of this year and finally ready to go back to school and start my career. What kind of emotions am I feeling about this decision? Oh, I don't know.... excited, scared, hopeful, discouraged, etc. Just about every emotion that I can possibly experience. I mailed in my application last week and will be going in this morning to pay the fee for my placement test.
I'm planning on going to school to become a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer. I'm not sure when it hit me that this was what I wanted to do with my life. But when it did, there was no denying that I'm confident that this is what I want to do. Ultrasound technology has always fascinated me to some degree, but it wasn't until I had my babies and experienced many different ultrasounds that a light went on in my head. I could make a living doing this!
I'm not going to lie - I'm absolutely terrified. More than anything, I'm scared of failing. I was never the best student. However, I know I'm at a completely different place in my life now than I was when I was 19 and attempting college for the first time. I'm dedicated and determined to do the best I can.
Guess I better go dust off my Trapper Keeper and lunch box!
Back to school! Back to school, to prove to Dad that I'm not a fool! I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight! Ohhhh, back to school! Back to school! Back to school! Well, here goes nothing!
