I've been spending some time around the colleg campus in Louisville and I just felt homesick for that life. I felt, all of a sudden, like I needed to make a change. Since I left school, although I've been working very hard and saving money, I have felt so very...stationary. It was like I still new what I wanted but didn't really have any true plans to pursue it.
I'm going back to UNLV.
Yep. Real life. I'm doing it. All I have to do is submit my immunization proof and I'm in. It was so easy. I called the registrar's office and there was nothing to it. A sign that I have to do it.
While I'm at it, I'm going to attend ROTC courses to later (hopefully) become a Commissioned officer. Just thinking about it, I have butterflies. That alone tells me that I have to do it. It was like I woke up this morning and just knew what I had to do.
At first, I thought I was being ridiculous thinking that I could get home from Kentucky and start school right away, but now, it just feels right. I know that I've said that before, but I feel so much more confident this time. On top of that, I'll have a little bit more money in my pocket. If you'll remember last fall semester I was ridiculously broke. Like so terribly broke I couldn't eat out. Like ever.
This time...it will be different. And I cannot wait!
I have a checklist a mile long of the things that I have to do before I can go, but it isn't phasing me at all. Before I felt overwhelmed and stressed out, as if there was no possible way to accomplish anything at all. This time...this time will be different.
