Official News

Officially, on the eve of my children starting 3rd and 5th grade, I submitted my application to Nursing School.  

It's in.

I paid an application fee and everything.

There is a disclaimer saying "you can't change anything once you hit this button" and I screwed my courage to the sticking post and clicked.

(deep breath)  I'm freaking out.

(another breath)  I'm definitely freaking the freak out.

What if I don't get in?  What if I have spent the last 2 years doing this core work for NOTHING?  Oh my word, I can't breathe.

Now I am not going to do anything drastic, but at this moment in my life I understand people who freak the FREAK out and have to get checked into mental institutions while waiting for acceptance letters.  And here's the bad news for the people who will have to be around me while I wait...

The "letters" go in the mail the week before ThanksGiving.


~gasp~

Well, there's no doubt in my mind that you'll get in, but that stinks that you have to wait so long to hear!!

Wow! That is a long time to wait, but I am sure that you will get in:) I was in nursing school 20 years ago, I can't imagine going now!

Thanksgiving?! That's almost three months away!

GEEZ!

Talk about keeping a girl in suspense! Maybe they do it to make sure you're mentally stable before they accept you? lol

You know you've got this! No worries. Because you could spend the next 3 months worried over it and get in or you could spend the next 3 months believing in your decision and get in! See? Why waste time worried? Live it up! In three months you'll be in nursing school!

So awesome. Here is a quote from one of my favorite photographers, Jasmine Star...hope it is encouraging...

"Of the things I'm most proud of in life, they've all had one thing in common: Risk. The bigger the risk, the more satisfaction I've derived upon completion. And the best part is that completion of the project/dream/goal isn't reflective of success. As long as I tried--did it in spite of fear--i walked away happy. Afterall, you don't know how far you can reach until you've been stretched. This is courage."

You have taken the risk!!
