I’m officially going back to school!
This is a decision I’ve been wanting to make for years, and I am happy to say that I am taking a grand leap of faith and going back to school once again. I’ll be attending a local university for a few years so I can become a registered dietitian.
Coming to this decision hasn’t been easy. My life has been tumultuous at best in recent months, but I suppose with waves of change come waves of opportunity. I’m choosing to seize this opportunity and work toward having a life that’s more suited to my passions and long-term goals.
This isn’t going to be easy. There are going to be plenty of moments when I’m pulling my hair out, studying for a midterm, asking myself why I chose to do this to myself. But that’s an interesting thing that I’ve realized lately — there’s a huge difference between good stress (the kind you feel when you’re working hard to accomplish a goal) and the bad stress (the times where you’re not in control or are making poor decisions). While no stress is any fun, the good stress is at least something you can be proud of.
I’m both excited and scared. This is a big commitment, and it’ll be a shit-ton of work, but I’m confident it’ll be worth it in the end.
