I can do this.

Right?


Right.

I'm one of those people who believes that playing it safe is, in the long run, one of the riskiest things you can do. Why? Because, by doing what the rest of the world expects or tells you is safe, you don't live your life, you survive it. How boring.

Ask yourself, if you follow this path (taking the risk of returning to school), what is the absolute worst thing that could come out of it? You fail? And...? Then you try something else? Well now, that's certainly something you can manage. And the choices will be yours, not someone else's. Certainly not your grandmother's.
