This year has been a great year, and I have been working on Operation Discover Myself. I really want to discover what I should do the rest of my life. Getting in shape has given me the confidence to really start trying to do this.
My degree is in Communication. It is such a broad degree, and so many people have it. It also means so many different things to different people. When I thought about becoming a high school teacher, the college said I could teach drama or speech with that degree. I took two speech classes, and drama was its own department at BYU-Idaho. So if I go back to school, I want to make sure I can specialize in something I love.
I have been thinking about nursing school. I have been told several times that I have the aptitude and personality for it. I think it would be just right for me. I wouldn't be stuck behind a desk, and I would be working with and helping people.
So, I have several hoops to jump through. I had good grades in college, not amazing grades, but that was because I was more interested in my social life or video games. I now have to take a few classes to even be considered, AND I might need to retake a class or two just to bring up those grades to get in. It is a very competitive thing to get into.
I have talked to some of my friends who are nurses, and I really want to make sure this is right for me before I do it. I am feeling good about it. Let me know what you think.
Rest day today. I have my 9 miles in the morning tomorrow.
