eeek!

I'm really doing it! I have sent for transcripts, I am getting ready to write my essay and fill out my application, and my references have been sent. I have registered for the GRE and will print out the prep tests as soon as I get a cartridge.

So now tell me why I feel like I could throw up??

I know, realistically, that I can do this. But I also know it is going to be hard work! Am I crazy for trying it?? I really think that God opened doors and nudged me into asking for the monetary assistance to go ahead with this. And though it will be more stressful for the time I'm in school, it could make life easier in the long run as far as being out of the classroom.

I'm excited, but I'm so nervous! I haven't been back in a classroom other than recertification classes in almost 15 years? What have I gotten myself into??!

Please pray for me!!

Okay, forgive me for this stupid question, but what is the GRE? Whatever it is, I can tell it means something to you and this sounds like a new beginning for you! GREAT!!

I'm in school full time right now and have been for a minute! So I understand your trepidation! God will bless you because you're doing something good for yourself!!!

I went back for my master's degree after teaching for about 6 years - it was the BEST experience of my life. I would love to pursue my doctorate...it is still in the back of my mind. I think you'll find school to be so much more rewarding this time around...I certainly did. Being a bit older and a lot wiser made it that much easier and exciting for me.

Congrats on moving forward with your dream! What degree are you planning to pursue?

You can do it!!!! It will be hard and tiring and some days you will want to cry, BUT I can say with only one class left, IT IS SOOOOOOOOO WORTH IT!! I have had fun, met great folks, and eeks, stepped out of my box. And, hopefully, won't try to climb back inside. When is the GRE?

Wow, what a great thing for you. I've never had the courage to try for my master's. I taught first grade for 7 years then moved to 3rd. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
