Well, not much has been going on with me lately. Work, school, Nigel, sleep... same old same old. I got promoted to "lead caregiver" at work. My raise was 50 cents, nothing spectacular, but it adds up. Of course it seems, good news always comes attached to bad news, and I did get some bad news this week. I recieved my rejection letter from the college for the nursing program. Mom opened the envelope over the phone. I had thought for sure I would have gotten in but it said that, while I met the requirements, all available spots have been filled. Bummer, right? I cried so much, I had to skip my next class.

It's so frustrating because all I have left for my degree are those nursing classes. I've spent the past three and a half years getting all of my core courses out of the way. What am I supposed to do now? I have no other classes to take next semester, at least none that can go towards my degree. What's worse is that I can't just take a semester off, because then the college loan people will start sending me bills that I can't afford to pay without my degree. I feel like I'm stuck. I mean, I can apply for next fall, but what if I don't get in then? And what should I do in the meantime?

Sorry if I'm rambling. I've asked myself these questions every day this week, and I'm just tired of thinking about it so much. I wish I knew what to do. All I know is that this is the career for me, I don't want to go for something else because this is the thing I have a passion for. You know what I mean? I feel like I wouldn't be good at something I don't feel passionate about.

Girl, I really missed you that day, too! My first instinct was to go to your house and vent to you about it. When I realized I couldn't I just went to the gym worked out my issues that way.
