Today's the day...my future depends on the contents of this folder. It represents a year of hard work, stress and tears, not to mention thousands of dollars invested. It holds the key to a new career, a new world that could open up for me, if I get in. Its my application to dental hygiene school.
I am absolutely terrified as I prepare to turn my application in. I really, really want this. But I also know there are 150 other people wanting one of the 32 spots available in the program. I'm also well aware of what getting in means...a two year commitment to a very stressful program, investing thousands of dollars, and heaping more on my plate than I can really handle - but having to juggle it anyway.
The changes this will bring to me and family are huge. I also know what the payout will mean when I finish...a great job with very little stress, a salary triple what I now earn, four day work weeks, and getting home to my family at an earlier hour every night.
So today as I hand in my application, my stomach is in knots. It will be months before I find out whether or not I get in. It all depends on the contents of this folder...the application that could change my life forever.
