I enrolled at the local junior college and it starts in a few days. It's been a while since I've been in school and although I am glad that I am doing something to get my life back on track, I am terrified at the same time. The majority of the students there are super young/cool kids which makes going back to school kind of like living out this reoccurring nightmare I used to have where I was demoted back to high school as a bald 33 year old man. I am debating weather or not I should wear a hat all the time for fear of sticking out like a sore thumb and being laughed off campus. I know kids can be cruel and I am afraid of the combination of that with my hyper self-consciousness will result in an absolutely unbearable experience. I know that I am there to learn and nothing else but I can't help but think that my worst fears will be realized. I keep telling myself to be strong but I am just so intimidated by the social aspect of all of this. Any constructive comments/suggestions are appreciated, thanks.
