I received the email that I was next on the wait list to be enrolled. I had 72 hours to act. I found my log in and password, proceeded to enter all fields and hit ‘next’/’submit’ where prompted, up until the last final ‘click here to confirm payment’. I paused.
What if Steve has to work late that night
What if the kids need me
What if it’s busy at work
How can I manage all this right now
What if I fail
I’m not sure what is so difficult about me committing to 4 hours, one night a week, for 4 months to exercise the creative part of my brain. To do something that I have wanted to do for 5 years.
If I don’t do this now, I never will. I entered my credit card information, placed my mouse over that final button and clicked the darn thing. I’m committed, I hope I get in.
What? You ask? I am hopefully soon to be enrolled at the local community college to take a graphic design course. It’s been over 17.5 years since I last attended college. Most of the other students are sure to be half my age or younger, gulp!
