I am going to start my Master’s tomorrow. I am 28, going to 29 in a couple of months. Anxiety ridden. Depression-fighting. Scared of being surrounded my 22 year olds way smarter than me. 22 year olds who speak English as their first language. AAH.
I did write once, that the most important thing that I have ever learned in life was: JUST DO IT.
So, here I am.
And I understand. It’s the world we live in, and I suppose at some point I will have to “woman up”. Find a job, pay more bills. But I am still stuck, at 4 months away from turning 29, following “my dreams”.
The fact is, sometimes to grow up is also to decide to finish what we have started. I started University almost 10 years ago, it is time to complete the circle. Nevertheless, I am still feeling agitated by thoughts about being late, and just straight up anxiety for starting something “bigger than me”.
How will it go?
Dunno. I’ll keep you posted. Or I’ll just forget it was ever a worry at all.
