I registered for classes! As in, the very last courses I need to graduate, after life (read: depression) got in the way and I took a year to be a nanny and play with babies all the time. I've been scared to face up to the music and go back to school, after things went south so badly last time, but I made myself do it and registration was today at midnight. So now I am back on track again! I love my job a lot, and it will be really hard to leave the kids, but it's time to finish my education.

Of course the same old fears crop up: I failed before, so why assume this time will be different? But I am doing a lot better now than I was a year ago. I semi-regularly clean and do laundry, I walk and get exercise, I sleep all right, I've done well at a job and paid my own bills, and occasionally I even wash my hair. So I think I can handle it.

This calls for a celebratory gif party!

Edited to add:

Thanks so much everyone! You've got me grinning like a loon on my morning bus ride. You guys are the best. :D <3
