Back from hiding

March 6, 2008 at 6:34 pm (blogging, myself & I, opinions, rambling, real life, reflecting)

It’s shameful, the amount of time it’s been since I last updated this blog…but I really didn’t have anything new to say. No recent hospital trips, no recent major dramatic changes in my “medical” life. I’m still jobless; finding work has been a lot more of a challenge then I expected, and now it’s pointless because in May I will be working at the recreational group for the developmentally handicapped. No point in getting a job for just two months or so, now is there?

There has been a lot of changes in my life recently I guess. I’ve been keeping busy hanging out with my friends and my older sister, Shannon. Two weekends ago was her Jack and Jill, and it went spectacularly! Next on the to do list is the bridal shower: which is next weekend, on the 22nd. Granny is going to teach us how to make fancy sandwiches and throw an elegant party.


Now I spoke of changes: a couple of them are rather insignificant. For instance, I gave myself a haircut and got my lip pierced (excuse the horrible picture, but I don’t feel like taking another one…heh). I like the lip piercing; it was my treat to myself on Valentine’s Day, since I knew I wouldn’t be getting anything from anybody. Why not? The bangs were just a day of boredom…and I sort of regret them because they get in my eyes.


Now the most recent change in my life is Matt. I meet him nearly a month ago at a party at my older sister’s house. He is a really sweet guy, and we definitely have a connection. It’s weird, but the good kind of weird. The wow I’m really excited to see where this will go kind of weird. He’s very much suited to everything that I need and we share the same views on a lot of things.

So those are the changes in my life, and here is what still hasn’t changed: I still am confused about the future. I’ve been accepted to both the Child and Youth worker program and the Journalism and Print program. I have until May to decide.

On the one hand, I love writing. It’s been my passion since I was very very small. But then, Journalism isn’t exactly a concrete career. And I do love working with people, so I know that I would be good at Child and Youth work.

Sigh. I don’t have a lot of time to decide either. In the end, I’ll probably end up going with Child and Youth work because it is stable.

    No news is good news! I’m glad you haven’t had any big events in your medical life!

    Girl, Dislocated: I suppose no news really IS good news!!

    Do Journalism! It is so much fun and don’t worry, it’s stable too. I’ve never lacked for job opportunities- there are a ton of things you can do with a Journalism major. Every business just sees you as someone who can write for them whenever necessary- and handle the press- which is a huge asset.

    Suburban Turmoil: I think I might go back and do Journalism after I finish my Child and Youth Worker program (which is what I ended up picking). This way I have a back up career, and get a chance to take an awesome course šŸ™‚
