Why I'm Going Back to School

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Master of Science in Psychology.

You might be wondering why someone like me is going back to school - - especially after spending about 7 years in college already. Fortunately, I have a well-thought out, really great answer for you.
Are you one of those people that knew exactly what you wanted to do right after high school?

Yeah, me neither. I knew I wanted a Bachelor’s degree as well as a Master’s - - but the subject matter was always a hit or miss. But then…

On a clear, sunny day, the epiphany came to me. After spending countless amount of hours teaching myself how to customize my blog (while oogling over gorgeous web design layouts and wishing I can create something like that), I realized how passionate I have become about web design. And how much I would regret it if I didn't go for it, all the way, 100%. Sooo....

Here I am. Blogging about my first day in my web design program. Am I nervous? Yes. Scared? A little. Excited? Yes! Wish me luck! 

Let’s Chat: Have you ever felt like you missed the boat for going after your passion? Did you find your passion a lot later in life too? If so, what steps did you take? What factors helped you to determine it was your passion rather than just another new interest?


  1. Yay I am really happy for you. I went to university for fashion design and then later went on for the web design. A lot of its the same but I am really happy now.

    1. Yay!! Thanks, dear! That is super reassuring to hear you are really happy now too after following your heart :) Appreciate the comment loads!!!

    2. If you ever have any questions or help just ask :)

  2. i think is awesome you are doing what you really like. I did my licence in biology, specialized in biomedicine. came to geneva and why not did a master in biology that i havent finished yet even if i didnt need it. now i think more all for marketing and comerce or even a bit of administration while is always in the scientific area...now having said that beauty is my ultimate passion. i dont know how to get to any of those things yet. marketing seems at hand than beauty but still quite hard. now...i dont think i could start uni all again :S so i hope i dont have to =)!!

    Bea =)

    1. Hey Bea...I feel in a world like this, absolutely anything is possible!! I just don't think it's too late to start on a path that we feel is truly right for us. If beauty is your passion, then do what you feel is necessary to making your heart feel good about it. I hear you on starting Uni all over again...that's why I'm only doing a diploma program (only 13 classes) instead of the whole drill again lol! :)

  3. Cathy this is so incredible!! I'm so happy for you that you're doing the course and that you're strong enough in yourself to know this is what you want :)

    I hope you enjoy yourself immensely, or at least that if it is difficult than it doesn't get you down or leave you second guessing yourself. Good luck for you first day!! Or as the Italians I'm surround by would say, in bocca al lupo! (Literally "in the mouth of the wolf", like break a leg. Weird, huh?) :P

    Much love from Milano! Rhianna :) xx

    The Wildest of Dreams

    1. Rhi! I feel this is an incredible move as well :) Either I'm strong or downright silly lol!

      Today was my first day and I already enjoyed all of the assignments. I can already tell I'm going to be the class nerd for this program lol! Bocca Al Lupo, I love it. Thanks!!

      Much love back from the USA Rhi :)

  4. I'm in school for graphic design and web is my favorite! Defiantly a fun and challenging field. It's always changing and it's so creative! Happy for you girl!

  5. This is great! You're doing the right thing! And you are doing it for yourself!
    I always knew what I wanted to be. I wish I had various talents but I am only good at philology.

  6. I think this is great that you are going back to school! Good for you!

  7. This is awesome Cathy - good luck! You're gonna love it :)

  8. Yay!! :) Congrats! And I feel ya. I often think about how silly it is that we're supposed to just 'know'' when we're 18 what to do forever and ever. lol. I took a one year degre program in animation a few years after highschool, got a job, worked it for a while and realized I was doing design in my spare time because I loved it so much, so I started a degree program. I still have two years to go, but it's been amazing so far! So glad I did. :) Good luck with everything!
