Dear Diary: Going Back To School


You might have seen in my recent life lately post that I am starting my masters this year. I applied what seems like forever ago and I have been excited ever since. Excited for change, exited for a new challenge, to learn, for the opportunity to progress and enhance my career. Thats what I have been looking forward to. Now my course starts in 3 days and I am thinking what the actual hell have I done.

The thought of how on earth am I going to work full time, complete my masters, keep my blog running and have a life is extremely overwhelming right now. So much so that I want to go run and hide under my duvet with a cup of tea and endless episodes of greys anatomy.

In my head I’ve tried to plan out a schedule of how I am going to fit it all in and I am not sure if thats helped or made the feeling worse. All I can put it down to is the fear of the unknown. I have no idea what to expect, what my schedule will be like, the workload, the assignments, the list goes on. I am sure once I start and I know exactly what is expected of me I will be able to plan better *crosses fingers.

As much as I am bricking it, I know that I made the right choice and I would be mad not to take the opportunity and run with it, purely for the things I’ve been excited about for the past 8 months. The only advice I can seem to give myself is stay organised and find a balance. How on earth I will achieve that I don’t know, but I am sure you will hear all about it on my littler corner of the internet over the next few months.

In the mean time please send help/advice … or at least some chocolate.
