Next step on the educational ladder

I started my Masters tonight. It's 2 years part time and luckily the first lecture wasn't so scary that I never want to return. I've done Masters level study before so I have a fair idea how challenging this course will be - though previously my study has been in the area I've been practicing which I'm sure was an advantage.

I feel bad though because this is two nights a week and I didn't know until last week what my course night were going to be - despite booking on back in May. This means my husband and mother-in-law are picking up the pieces where my diary has fallen apart and the charity SurvivorsUK I volunteer for has suddenly lost me on the night they usually meet.

This level of study could lead to excellent career prospects in future - I say could because nothing's certain in this life - but I still feel guilty about being away from my son because I have a job, I don't need this course to get a job. In the long run I may bring in a better salary because of this course but for now I am pulled away from my son and I do feel bad about it. So all in all my anxieties are around my family relationships rather than about the course. Weird huh?
