My confession / I'm scared to go back to school

I'm 35 and never went to college.  I got lucky and have been able to work my way up in my job, which has paid well.   I've always been embarrassed of not being college educated. 

I'm faced with finding another job due to my current job facing financial hardship.   

So my husband and I agree that it's a perfect time for me to fulfil that dream.

I'm terrified of failing.  This fall I'll start the road to obtain a  my Master's in Occupational Therapy.

All the best!  A friend of mine did that course in England and it was quite difficult, but she made it through.

You say you're not college educated but that you're going for a Masters?  Do you have your Bachelor's yet, or are you doing it all in one go?  I went back to get mine at the age of 28 and loved it.  Professors tend to appreciate mature students and what they have to bring to the table.  It will be difficult, but worth it.

"Obstacles are what we see when we take our eyes off the goal".  Go get 'em!
