Back to School!

I turn 34 in 6 days. My gift to myself is knowledge and an eventual career change.

I am now a university student! I am so proud of myself, I have a goofy grin on my face just writing this! I am doing a BSc in Psychology, an actual degree! Me! This is so huge for me. I’ve always felt stupid and I have a habit to silently measure my success against others, minimising my own accomplishments and strengths. The degree is going to take 6 years because I also need to work as well as study. There is the possibility of it taking slightly less time depending on how I manage the time juggle.

My plan is to become a therapist eventually. I will be able to do this on a self employed basis which is preferable as I’m self employed at the moment doing elderly home care.

This is a tentative idea as things can change over time but for now it feels good to have a plan in place and an eventual goal in mind.

I’m happy.

    Sounds amazing!! I’m turning 34 in February, and have been accepted into a Psychology degree at a university. Just need to save up for my registration fee, which needs to be paid end of November. Looks like we’re on the same track, lol!

      That’s so cool Rayne!!! I’ve got a student loan which I’ll be paying off till the day I die I expect. Luckily here I don’t have to pay anything until I’ve got my degree though otherwise I’d never be able to afford it xx
