Changing careers. Giving up the known for the unknown.
Yeah, I know what you mean about it being difficult and challenging and frightening and exciting all at once.
Of course, I switched careers for a different reason, possibly a selfish one, but I do understand a bit of what you're going through.
By the time I finally figured out that I wanted to a different career, I was nearing my 30th birthday and had been chasing a corporate career for almost 10 years.
Unlike you, I traded one career for an equally unsatisfying one, in part because it seemed, well, indulgent, to say that I wanted to write for a living.
I suppose because it conjures up in most people's minds the idea of grandeur by the writer.
It wasn't event that I expected to become a famous novelist, or a rich screenwriter. I simply wanted to spend my 9-5 writing in different creative forms. Ones that I had a passion for.
And here you are about to step back into life as a student. I think it's awesome. And awe-inspiring!!
