I’ve recently had this strong desire to go back to school. So now, in the midst of having more responsibility at one time than I’ve ever had before I’m getting ready for graduate school.
In addition to the typical duties of life, I’m studying for the GRE and working on applying to the graduate program of choice.
While all this is fine and dandy the reality of what I’m about to undertake is starting to become more realistic.
On days that I work, I can never make solid plans. If there’s a fire, death or any series of unfortunate events that is too much for any one reporter to handle I’m working.
That’s the job I signed up for so it’s never been a problem. I signed up for this position knowing that I would be up to my ears in tragedy and that my schedule can never be truly determined.
That’s why it’s called breaking news.
Now, however, I’m starting to think about the classes I’m going to be paying an arm and a leg to be in, the amount of studying I will have to start doing and all the other pressures school has with it.
It’s been awhile since I’ve been in school and dealing with that, but I’ve never tried to work full-time and be a student.
I’m a little nervous.
Now that the idea is more of a reality my anxiety is turning to “Can I do this?” “When will I have time?” “Will work be an option?”
