Waiting for school to end
The title of this post is really all I'm doing at this point. In one of my health classes we had a Nurse come speak and she really, really rang the bell for Nursing. If I were 19 years old and looking for a career choice, she'd have me. Not only do Nurses get PAID but you can almost write your own ticket. They need and want them.

But I woke up and realized not only am I too old, but I know I'm not dedicated enough at this point to turn around and do 4 more years of school for nursing. Good career, but it's just too late for me. I actually would have done it had someone pointed me in that direction 10 years ago.

I think we're going to do the Smoking in Movies influence kids to Smoke topic for my other class. Nothing is certain, but I think that's where we're heading.

I'm thinking of volunteering at a hospital only because a friend reccomended me and I called the lady and we talked. I would like to volunteer in the office. It's really the experience of working in a medical office I'm after. I also signed up to be certified in CPR.

I'm just ready to get out of school so I can stop with these part-time jobs and trying to fit something around classes. I'd like to get a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing. But I'll see how that goes. One degree at a time I guess.

I miss my blogger friends. You know who you are. Thanks to those who stop by and give me cheerful 'hope you're doing okay's' (looks at Shannon and Beadinggal). I have missed quite a few of your posts but I try and stop by when I can. I'm thinking of you guys! And that means all my bestest blogs.

Well, Now I'd like to close this post with this:

    You are SOOOO not too old!!! But it is a huge committment! They do make the big money.

    Do not worry school is almost over, I am sure the last semester has to be the hardest! You can see the finish line but it is still out of reach.

    Awwww you are sooo welcome!! Me and Beading just love ya.. gotta check in on you everyday to make sure you are ok... like I said before you are a cool chica!

    If you are old then I am old.. and darn it.. I am not old!! LOL... Nursing is a great career, my best friend is a nurse, but it is sooo hard, she is exhausted at the end of her shifts. I give nurses soo much credit.. they are little angels in my book.

    I would love to do some medical/office job.. I have some college credits and I may go back after my son starts school. I wish you all the luck.. just know it's all worth it.. you will do good .. you will have success, it's just written in the cards for you Missy!

    Have a great weekend.. you know we are thinking of you!! =)

    Hola Gunny Bunny :D
    I think you should do whatever it is that you want to do. You're NOT too old. My mom went to nursing school when my sister and I were little...I think she was in her late 30's or 40 something. If your dream is creative writing, then you should go for that.

    Keep truckin' babe and give the kiddies in your sociology of pulp culture group some swift kicks in their asses for me ;D
