Last Friday was my last day of work. As I walked down the halls of the office where I dedicated the last two and a half years of my life, I was overwhelmed with emotions. This was the last time I would walk to the lunch room,  the last time I would hold a mindless conversation with the office manager, the last time I would punch out. Leaving the building was more sweet than bitter however, but I still felt disconnected to reality.

Was I really quitting my job? No more waking up late, panicking and running around like a chicken with its head cut off. No more fuming my way through the morning traffic in order to swipe in just a few minutes late. Although I had planned this for quite some time now, It still felt surreal. I enjoyed my last place of employment (to the certain extend, of course), but I knew it wasn’t something that I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I am going back to school.

Back to university, where I will still be running around like a chicken with its head cut off, battling the morning traffic and struggling to meet deadlines. If anything, life will be even more hectic now that I will be taking a full course load. Yesterday was my first day of school and I am ready to pull my hair out, trying to dig deep in my brain to recall what I’ve learned what seems like centuries ago!

As I take a leap to the uncertainties that life may throw my way, I pray that God with watch my every step.

To all of your that will be returning to school this semester or attending for the first time, cheers to your and let’s make it one of the best school year yet!

  1. Congrats on the new beginning! Definitely nice to be able to leave somewhere with more sweet than bitter – but even more nice to be starting a new journey!

  2. Congratulations on your decision to go back, I have also decided to return to school and finish what I started.

  3. Congrats on going back to school. I too started school for the second time and your right. It did seems like centuries ago. This semester was very difficult and I ended up getting A’s and B+. Which I am proud of but I know that it’s only going to be tougher next year. God help me.
    I know what’s it’s like working for companies after companies, having daft conversations with supervisors and manager (who you wander how they got that position in the first place), which is why I decided to go back to school. I am proud of you and take it one day at a time. Keep praying about it, water it, and the Lord will bless it. Take care.

    P.S. Thank you for the Youtube posts and the blogs. They are encouraging. And Yes, I also have an unhealthy obsession with my natural hair.
