Going back to go forward

This week has been a little different for me, I decided back in June that I would go back to college and follow a new career path. Although I am only 23 everyone in my course apart from one is younger than me and was starting to question myself, is this something I should be doing? I am now weirdly starting to feel my age and even though the doubts came I am now happy in my life and feel confident that I can get my degree in travel, travel with my partner and get my dream travel and tourism job!

A lot of work but I am ready to go. First thing was my induction which was on Monday morning, well in my head it was Thursday, got dressed, stressed out a little and then remembered it was Monday opps. I did write it on my calendar by the way but with everything that is going on I  graciously managed to to go about my week in my bubble and completely forgot to look at my calendar that week. My induction turned out not to be as scary, everyone was fab and I settled into my role of the nutter within about mmm 2 seconds. I got all my timetables and diaries and such, turns out I am learning Spanish this year. Good luck. My brain just doesn’t react well to languages I just cant seem to get them. With my choice of travel and tourism as a career I am praying that Spanish sticks not like my high school french which seems to be non existent.

I don’t think it has sunk in completely that, I have a job that I love, that I am going back to college and that right now I am somewhat happy. I am a little nervous about going back and how I will take to being educated after 4 years of educating myself, not with travel or tourism but with life and becoming an adult. Has anyone else taken a break from education? How did you feel about going back?

I don’t normally write such personal posts but after writing all this down I feel great, I have went from freaking out to being calm. Maybe going back means I can go forward.
