I just got back from my appointment with my Career Development Counselor. Only a few hours later...no big deal! Turns out the receptionist that checked me in, didn't really check me in, so the counselor had no idea I was there for over an hour! Talk about feeling invisible.
After we got it all figured out, they had me in there pretty quick, and I took as much as I possibly could away from our discussion. She threw a lot at me all at once though, so it's hard to know how much will actually stick with me.
At the end I was left feeling almost as lost as I felt at the end of high school when everyone started asking the same questions.
What do you want to do? Where do you see yourself in the next few years? How will these courses help you towards your career of choice? Starting wage? Flexibility? Availability?
If I could have answered those questions back then I would have. I'd like to think that the timing simply wasn't right, and that I've had some time to think about it. Only, I didn't think about it at all.
It's both scary, and a bit of a relief to finally be moving forward with something, even if I'm not a hundred percent sure what that is at this exact moment.
First thing first, time to do some research! I'm thinking the smaller classes of a college setting will be better suited for me and my anxiety.
As it stands right now....I have no clue.
Any advice for someone going back to school? I would love to hear in the comments. :)
