Nope – I don’t have somebody looking for a job.
Nope – I don’t have a friend that has moved into my house.
Nope – I am not running a match making service.
I, myself, have gone back to school. It has been in the works for some time, but it is now official. I have the books and everything and I turned in my first test last night.
How do I have time? I don’t, but that’s not the point. I have opted for a fully online course of study to make it more manageable for my schedule.
Why create one more thing to do for myself? It’s important to me. My sister has started school too – and whichever one of us finishes first, will be the first. That’s huge. And if she finishes before me, I’ll be second to that any day of the week.
Why full time? The GI Bill pays more if you go full time. That, and I only have 14 months of benefits left – I have got to get hot on getting finished.
Why post about it? Because I know there is something important to you that you have been putting off because:
- you don’t have the time
- you already have too much to do
- other’s ridicule your decision as “too big” or “too much”
We have talked before about going big. I am now getting comfortable with the idea of dreaming big. I have got one shot at this thing they call life, and I am gonna ride it for all it’s worth.
Need more encouragement. Me too! Pam over at Escape from Cubicle Nation (I love that title) does a great job of explaining why it is important to jump right in.
And this is me…jumping…all in.
