I'm twenty-nine years old and I finally feel like my life is beginning. Last week when I saw my therapist, she suggested I go to school for social media marketing since I've built up my blog and done so much on my own. Problem: there's only one school with an associate's degree in social media marketing and that school happens to be a strict LDS (Mormon) school. I have to live a certain way and get endorsements from two of my church leaders. OK, so maybe not so much a problem as it sounds, but I'm getting increasingly more nervous that I'm not going to be getting the endorsement I need from one of them. Why? I made the mistake of being honest and telling him that I currently drink coffee. Yeah, I'm a genius.
Side note: For those who may not know, the LDS people aren't really supposed to drink coffee. What can I say? I'm a rebel.
Anyway, I'm both excited and incredibly nervous about starting school again for several reasons.
- I'm almost thirty years old and everyone in my classes will be eighteen.
- I've never been good at school. I never had good study habits and most of my homework never got done.
- The classes at this school are super small (or so I've heard) and that means I'll be noticed and called on to answer things. Can you say "panic attack"?
- I'm excited because maybe, just maybe, I can finish something for once in my life.
I need all your prayers/good vibes/whatever that I get this endorsement and then get accepted to the school. Thanks in advance! I guess y'all are psychic and read this before it posted because I just got the call that I got the endorsement!!!
