(not) Back to School!
So just in case you guys don't know - kids went back to school this week. And I think I actually feel some type of way about finally not being able to participate in the Back to School excitement/dread (depending on which side you're on).
I feel like school and university had always been an integral part of my life, it forced me to make friends, participate with the public, and it gave me a goal to achieve. But now that I've graduated University I no longer have that, and it's an awkward feeling. I think I'm actually starting to realize that life doesn't have to revolve around school and that there are other wonderful things you can do.
I think after this first week it's made me realize how happy I am to not be in school anymore. I loved school, don't get me wrong, but the feeling of not being good enough has finally subsided and I feel more confident today than I have in a really long time. Being out of school also allows me to explore opportunities and passions that I didn't have time for previously. I've come to realize that I really like being outside and on the water, I've rekindled my love for MMORPGs, and it has also given me the chance to concentrate on my relationship. I don't think I've ever been happier than I am right now.
Would I go back for my Masters? As of right now, no. But who knows what the future holds - I'm just along for the ride.
