With the school year just beginning for many ladies and gents, I find it appropriate to make the big reveal that I’ve officially dropped out of college.
Ha. No really. And I couldn’t be happier about it.
Now before you go getting all, “But you need a college degree” on me, I have one. It’s in Journalism and I just can’t find a job doing it in the area I’m in that will pay me enough to pay the bills. So I decided to try to do that nursing thing again so I’d have a lot of money to pay the bills and have a little extra.
For the last month I’ve been feeling so much anxiety about my decision to pursue nursing school yet again. If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know I’m like a yo-yo with my educational choices. With all of the anxiety I’ve been having about school, I finally made a decision today and withdrew from my classes. The amount of relief I feel is unbelievable.
What I’ve realized is that I want to enjoy my life which means also enjoying my career. I started working as a nurses aid again and I really just don’t like it. I’m still working my other job and decided not to leave there which means I have been working two jobs. I have been so tired and have had 4 days off all month (why I have hardly posted anything).
Anyway, I realized that I don’t have to put energy into something I really don’t want to do in order to get where I want to go. What I need to do is rather than putting my time and energy into nursing school (or any school right now for that matter), I need to put my energy into the things I love. WordPress, YouTube, making candles, music, yoga – those are the things I am most passionate about. I don’t need waste my time, money, or energy on things that put me on edge.
This world is so cruel and judgmental at times; it is easy to get caught up in what you think you should do or be, but in reality, you live this life for yourself and no one else. Don’t you think you should spend it doing things you love?
Maybe I’m crazy but that’s what I really think.
I encourage all of you to live by your intuition rather than living by society’s point of view.
