Here's the thing. I've been thinking about going back to school for a long time. I love classes and studying and tests and everything. I'm a huge bonafide nerd/geek hybrid. And with everything that's happened in the past few years, I've thought – and joked – about going to nursing school. Even find a pre-med program.
But what I didn't tell anyone is that I took the MCAT. Just for fun. And I passed.
So I have a decision to make. Can a 35-year-old with three kids, who's been out of academics for a long, long time really manage medical school? Will the whole family follow me to school, or will I commute? (Assuming I get accepted into the UT medical school in Houston.)
Am I really ready for something like this? Can anyone be ready?
It was all fun and games until I passed the test, and now it's real and exciting and all a lie because today is April first. I think I will just keep writing books and chasing kids and maybe become a backwoods healer. What do you think?
