After debating with myself long and hard, I finally gave in and won.
For the past 2 years I’ve been a hamster in a cage, frantically spinning my wheels but going nowhere. It finally dawned on me that it was time for me to become human again and climb out of the cage. (It had become rather confining.)
After all, they say the definition of lunacy is repeating the same action over and over and expecting a different result. It has taken a while, but I finally understand that hamster wheels do not make good modes of transportation, no matter how fast you go.
Sooooooo, I did it! I enrolled in a Master of Fine Arts for Creative Writing program!
Wish me luck! It will be loads of work, but well worth it.
Note: I do, of course, still have to be accepted. Which I’m sure I will, since I prefer to think in positives.
