Today is my first day of graduate school, in roughly two years from today I will have my masters in occupational therapy. I would be lying if I told you I wasn’t nervous. You think I would be over first day off school jitters by the age of 23…guess not.
Today is simply orientation from 10-7, I get to meet everyone in my program and all of my professors. A million thoughts have been running through my head lately, and I am hoping after today they will stop. I figured I would share what I am nervous about, writing it out always seems to help.
I’m nervous about meeting new people.
I’m nervous about starting something new.
I’m nervous about trying to find a balance between work, school, and life.
I’m nervous about failing.
I’m nervous about being able to afford everything.
I’m nervous I wont end up liking my profession in the end.
I’m nervous about what others will think of me.
I’m nervous about not living up to everyones expectations.
Maybe after a full day of orientation I will feel more settled and less nervous. Hopefully the beating of my heart will slow down a bit, and my head won’t be filled with so much anxiety.
