"It always seems impossible until it's done."

- So if you're feeling a little anxious about stepping out by yourself, just remember that quote and know that the friendly teachers will break up the course into small learning units. You won't be alone in feeling a bit anxious (others will too) and you will be glad that you challenged yourself, realised it wasnt that scary, and learnt something new! senior-on-tablet
