That's right, effective 1-10-2011 I quit my wonderful job at GS where i worked for appx. 4.5 years, made some fabulous friends, and learned a whole lot of useful information. In fact, I took over 44,000 calls during my time there (this is why my phone is always on silent...can't stand to hear it ring!). I hated to say goodbye, in fact, I didn't even say goodbye to everybody because it was too hard...instead I sent a mass goodbye email to the room.
I am now fortunate enough to be a full time student pursuing a degree in Nursing. In approximately 2.5 years I will be a R.N.. This has been a dream of mine for several years, and Trav and I were able to make that dream a reality.
I am taking 14 hours this semster:
Anatomy and Physiology I--lots of memorization in this class, with a throwback to high school Chemistry
Microbiology-- so stinkin' hard and a lot of homework (reports, case studies, journals, labs, etc.)
Developing Psychology--online class--so far so good
Statistics- really awful teacher. He wears jeans, Under Armour shirt, and dew rag each day and says the word 'honestly' and 'you know' at least 200 times in the 80 minutes I'm in class.
It is a little weird going back to college at almost 30, but I feel that I have a different grasp on college and a much better idea of how to study and I definitely have the time for it now! In case you were curious: The new trend in college students is to wear sweat pants with Uggs or flip flops with your favorite t-shirt, not to brush your hair, and lather on the eye liner/mascara/eye shadow. I have not joined this trend, but I do love wearing jeans and sneakers to class each day!
I could use all the prayers I could get this semester as I return to 'college mode', attempt to pass Micro, and tackle my way to becoming a nurse and fulfilling my dream!
