A Kinda Sorta Resolution

Resolutions...everybody has them, not many people follow through on them. I'm one of the former latter. I wait until New Year's Day and then make some bullshit resolutions to "make my life better." Blah blah blah.

Well, as of last year, I gave up

on resolutions. I did choose a word of the year last year, and I did great with that word for the beginning of the year. I think if I do that again, I will make a plan as how to follow it. Or maybe I'll choose different words for different months. Who knows. Anyway...it wasn't perfect but it was better than making a resolution.

This year, I'm back to making a resolution. Except, it's not really. This year I'm going back to school. Yes, I made a reference about how I never went to class yesterday. I shall change that. 

As I've said before, I've never known what I wanted to do with my life. I went to school for 4 years and I'm still 8 billion credits away from graduating. I think it was a combination of things such as I couldn't stand the school I was at and I didn't know what I wanted to do. I started as a business and comm major, then I switched to PR, then I switched to undecided, then I went back to business, and last but not least I wanted to be a paralegal. Yeah, that's a headache for me to remember to.

I've always been interested in the medical field. But not the blood, guts, and gore end of it. I can't handle that shit. I wondered about Hospital Admin but I realized that you never really get time off and that's not what I wanted to do with a child. And there was nothing else I could think to do. Until Christmas time. I decided that I want to back to school to be a pharmacy tech. I can't explain why I think it sounds like fun. It just does. It's not a job that I wanted where I can sit in my office and blog during the day (maybe someday I'll have one of those), but it is the job I wanted in the sense that I'm not doing the same exact thing everyday and I'll be busy on my feet all day. 

There are 3 schools in my area that have pharmacy tech certificates. I have one that I'm waiting for them to call me back. It's also the one I really want to go. But it depends on $$$ too. I want to get a new car this year, and I don't want to have to choose between the two. 

So yeah, that's what I'm gonna do with my life. For now anyway. Who knows where I'll be in 5 years.


That's for my dad. He loves Adam Sandler and watching Billy Madison is always something that reminds me of him. And the fact that he really wanted me to go back to school.

SO excited for you! I unfortunately had to make the decision between car and school last year which is why I wasn't able to go back until this year but you need to have a reliable way to get from work to school and home again! I hope you are able to get everything in order to go! SO happy you made this decision and really excited for you!

Back to School,
Back to School,
To Prove to Papa
That I'm not a fool.
Got my lunch packed up,
My boots tied tight,
I hope I don't get in a fight.

I sing it every day.
