A (scary) Step Forward
Spring Semester 2010 starts today for me. This semester I am trying something a little bit on the scary side for me. My work has graciously agreed to let me cut my hours back and I will now be taking classes back to back on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
Cutting my hours obviously means taking a cut in my pay. This is incredibly scary because I am also upping my credit hours and therefore my tuition.
But you know what? I’m not stressing about it. Well, a little. But I am applying for scholarships and I’m in the system to get financial aide (although it looks like I won’t qualify). Things are definitely going to be tight, but I will find a way to make it work!
To be honest I am really excited about this semester. It is all classes that go towards my communications degree and will also carry over into my daily life. So while additional hours and less income is scary, I am more excited than anything.
I feel like I have momentum.
I feel like there could actually be an end in sight.
The end being years away, but still, I see it and that’s the point.
