Go-go-go. That was me today. I had a full day at work, graded papers, stopped by the store, went to a meeting, made supper, and had my first class of the winter quarter.
Yep, I finally started taking classes again. Taking that leap is basically the first significant step toward exiting my current job which is an idea that only existed hypothetically in my secret, imaginary utopia in my head. Up until now, if ever asked about the topic, I would timidly respond with a weak answer about how I might go back to school or something. Now I can confidently say, “I am in the present tense enrolled in a class and am actively pursing an alternative career and proud to do so.” I don’t have to be resigned to living this sad way. I can change my condition. And, I am…right now!
I used to think I can’t until one day I thought I can, and someday I decided I will, but the best of all is saying I am.
