I went back to uni a little over a month ago.
It wasn’t the easiest decision to make as an adult with ‘adult’ responsibilities and a full time job, but ultimately it’s a decision that I hope will be a good investment in my future.
This year I have traded in my evenings to attend ‘virtual’ classes, and my weekends for assignments. It’s been challenging, to say the least. I’m the kind of person who likes to get a good head start on things. The downside to getting ahead is that there have been many fleeting moments when I’ve felt like there’s been nothing more to my existence than study.
I’m studying accounting, which is something I once swore I’d never do because every man and his dog seemed to do it. But it seems to be a profession that’s in demand, and I wasn’t half bad at it when I last did it in high school.
Oh, and my diabetes is still there too. It hasn’t been giving me too much grief. But if there’s one thing that I’ve missed more than anything, it would have to be connecting with others in the diabetes community. While I’ve still been lurking around, I’ve been oddly reminded of what my life was like before I found the DOC four years ago. I know that my wellbeing is far better when I’m an active part of this amazing community.
I submitted my two assignments for the semester this week, and I’m very much looking forward to actually enjoying some of my upcoming weekends. I’m not too sure what will become of my blog this year, but I’m hoping I’ll be able to check in here a little more often than I have been.
