I have books.
I have pens, highlighters, pencils, and a binder.
I have a student ID.
I have an advising team that will answer any and all questions, dedicated to helping me succeed.
I have a financial aid department that not only answers the phone (I know!) but is knowledgeable.
I have my first 2 classes scheduled, back-to-back, for over the summer.
I have everything I need to do this.
To do this well.
I’m a little bit terrified,
But I’m really excited!
And in 7 days, I will actively be a student.
And I will do this!
And then I will pay back thousands of dollars in loans, privileged to be able to do so.
That last part may make me sound crazy.
But this has been a so very long fight.
