    I'm going to be taking online classes

    for a Bachelor's of Science in Audio Production from Full Sail. Firstly, I've never been great at school. I'm not dumb, I just have a hard time motivating myself even in crucial moments. But that's my secondary fear; I'm really scared that despite my education, should I succeed...

    I have an opportunity

    for a new job, but am scared to death to accept it, because I am afraid I will fail. I'm afraid they will find out how inadequate I truly am. My current job is easy and secure, but I'm not happy there.
