Day 8 - Most satisfied day.

A day I felt most satisfied with my life...I would have to say it was actually last night.  It's kind of like this.  I've been working the same job for the past 10 years.  Last night was the first transition moment I've felt about finally retiring from my career as a videographer, and finally starting the next stage of my life going into nursing.  Last night was the final home game of my career.  Monday starts the playoffs, but there will be no more games on the home court.  It felt kind of strange, but also rather satisfying.  I mean this change has been a long time coming.  I was hesitant last year about returning, because the money isn't all that great, but it takes up so much of my time to do.  I'm finally glad to be going through this transition from job to career, and once I can finally start, things will be incredibly challenging, yet awesome.

Day 7 Zodiac Sign

I'm a capricorn.  I don't know much about my sign, aside from that it's a goat, and something about stubbornness.  Makes sense to me.  I can be a bit hard headed from time to time, especially when I set my mind on something.  It's rather hard for me to describe myself. heh.  Now I've missed quite a few days here so I'm going to do the next few to catch up.

Feeling slightly vindicated.

So I'm browsing earlier looking for something factual to gaze on and relax a bit, when I come across this article.

I'm feeling a little less like a naive kid after having read that.  And more solid in my stance that I'm just not interested in oral sex.

Sorry, I haven't posted this week, it's been kind of a rough one.  I really need a vacation/some downtime.  I'll continue the dailies hopefully on Monday.

Day 4. Religion.

I have to say first off, these posts are quite thought provoking.

Religion.  I don't get along with organized religion.  Nothing personal against it, but during my high school years the church I was raised in began going after me.  Between the suspensions, the trips to the Dean's office and the demand that my parents take me to a psychiatrist(who later asked why I needed to be in his office), I kind of fell out of touch with the faith I was raised in.  The thing is, all of these were brought on because I was having Asthma induced night terrors(which we later found out when I started seeing an asthma specialist.

Make no mistake, I don't hate organized's just not for me.  It does not bother me one bit if a person chooses to follow and pick one to fit them, but don't push it on me.  After an experience like I had, I've become much more cautious when it comes to anything involving faith.

Day 3. Drugs and Alcohol

This one is going to be fun, I can tell you right now.

I don't drink.  I'm not permitted to.  Over the past year, I've had 2 bouts of kidney stones formed from high levels of uric acid in my kidneys.  Because of this, I've been put on a specific diet of food to help keep those levels down.  One of the things to go, was any kind of alcohol, as it is apparently bad in terms of uric acid.  But I should mention, that I never really drank before then.  It's a control thing.  I don't like not having control over my body.

Drugs.  I detest them.  Illegal ones that is.  Same issue as with booze.  I'm just not the type of person who likes being unable to control my actions.  It probably sounds stupid, but it's just who I am. I like that feeling of knowing that I'm not going to wake up tomorrow and wonder if something I can't remember having done the night before will be all over facebook, or that I did something incredibly stupid that I wouldn't have done if I was in complete possession of my faculties.

Day 2. Where do I see myself in 10 years?

Well for starters, I intend to move down south.  Living in the northern half of the country is way too cold, especially with this wonderful blizzard we're having today through tomorrow.  Second, I hope to be well into a successful career as a nurse.  I've spent far too long putzing around in school to let this go now that I actually know what I want to do with my life.  Beyond that, I've no idea.  Will I be married with a family? who knows.  Certainly not me.  But I do know that once I accomplish both those goals, I will be satisfied with the direction my life is taking.

Musings before class

I'm about to leave for Medical terminology.  I will have Day 2 posted later just wanted to get this out now.

Haven't heard about the job yet.  Tomorrow makes a week since the interview, is this a bad sign? I've had the same job for almost ten years now so I have no idea if this is how things go these days.

Today is also the deadline for applying to my first choice nursing program.  I've had all my info in for months now, but this means they will start sending out the information packets in the next few weeks! Excitement!

Anyway, off to class.
