New Beginnings

Ever since I graduated from college, I have wanted to attend graduate school to receive my master's degree. Throughout my career as a nurse, I have had many roles, each with its own specialty degree offering.  They all sounded tempting, but none of them stuck with me as something for the long term.  I have finally taken my plunge and after much, much, much research, (did I mention that I really researched this decision?), I have chosen my program and my school.
Anyone that knows me really well knows that I agonize over decision making.  I rarely make spur of the moment decisions.  Everything is researched to the nth degree.  We don't even buy household items without me checking ratings first.  My DH has laughingly adapted to this.  Thankfully.  Even after all that planning and researching, I continue to second guess the decision.  There is probably some syndrome name for me.  Yes, I think it mirrors perfectionism.  :)
I am starting with just one class since it has been over two decades since I graduated from college.  I need to get my feet wet first.
Excited and scared to death.  Just the beginning of a new journey for me.  Moving right along....  :)
