Not at all. A lot of people are in the same situation as you, and it's good that you're starting now rather than never. Congrats.

Not at all. Assuming I make enough money, I want to continue my education my entire life. My dream now is to take a year off in my 40s or 50s, and take a fellowship that has nothing to do with my career (like English or art history). Grad school is a bit more intense than that, of course, but one must look at that in the context of a career move, and not as merely school.
