I really don’t think it was this scary the first time around.
Twenty-four hours from the time I write this, I’ll officially be back in school.
I’m more than a little freaked out at this process–I’m not looking forward to being surrounded by little 18-year-olds just out of high school.
I’m trying to remain calm, I really am, but the anxiety hit me like a ton of bricks about an hour ago.
Hopefully, I can get this freak-out taken care of today, and tomorrow, I’ll be calm and serene.
The thing is, I know I have to go. This isn’t like church, where I have a lifetime to overcome my fears and anxieties, I’m actually paying good money to be surrounded by teenagers. And, as much as it sucks, getting out and being around people really will help with the anxiety–when I was working, I did get panic attacks, but I didn’t let them overwhelm me, I could excuse myself for a few minutes and go to the bathroom to calm down, but then I had to get back to work. School should do the same thing, right?
So tomorrow, ready or not, I’m headed to UVU. For one hour. Of an LDS Institute class. Which should make going to my actual college classes a little easier, right?
WordPress unveiled a new feature called Zementa that’s supposed to make adding pictures and links easier. I haven’t decided if I like it yet, but I’m trying it out for a bit.

You can do it! I miss school, I wouldn’t mind going back. There were quite a few “older” students in my SUU classes.
