Change in Plans

Hey everyone,

I've been busy lately trying to get everything ready for school. So yesterday I met with my advisor to get some more information on my program. This is when I got my bad news, the earliest I could get my CNA is in January. (There's a HUGE waiting list) This is bad because John and I are working towards moving next year. (I don't need to still be in school around that time. It's just too risky.) There are also several fees that we cannot afford right now. (I'm sure our insurance would cover some, but I digress) I'm kind of sad, but I know that being a CNA wasn't my dream job. I was happy to have a direction for awhile, but it wasn't necessarily the right one. So my school plans are put on hold for now.

I'm taking this time to re-focus, re-energize, and re-evaluate my life. Right now I'm looking for a part-time job, volunteering, and trying to figure out what I'm truly passionate about. I may get my CNA some day. I'm not entirely ruling it out, but for now it's plan B and I'm definitely not doing it through ATC. I'm sick of that place and I'm sick of dealing with people who don't care about me and the fact that I'm trying to better myself.

So that's where I am right now. I don't really like it, but I'm at peace about it.

To all my followers, I'll be catching up on your blogs soon. I miss you guys and don't worry you'll be seeing more of me again:) I will also be making regular posts again and some possible revamping again. (I get bored too easily;)

  1. Get bored? Come visit me!!! :D

    Sorry to hear about your CNA, though. :/ Buuuut that just means there is something greater waiting out there for you. :)

  2. Sorry about the stumbling block in your dreams. I hope you make it work somehow at least in future.
    And hope you figure out what you like to do. Life is just so much better when you enjoy at least a big aspect of your job.
    When I worked (prior to kids), I had a very high stress job that demanded so much of my life and time but I really enjoyed the (majority) of the people I worked with and I loved managing people, large projects and being in control and achieving success. The fast pace was a 'high' for me. In my current life all of that would be a 'negative'. So funny how your perception changes at different stages of your life.
    Wish you the best of luck.

  3. Thanks for the update! When I don't see you, I get worried :) Glad to hear you're figuring things out. It's so hard to know what will truly fulfill you so you just have to go along until you find it!

  4. Thanks! I appreciate your kind words. :)


Be a dear and leave a comment.

They make me smile!
