This week has been full of irritation, excitement, and new adventures. I’ve accepted a new job and potential career at the local newspaper. It’s local for us but it spans an entire five state area making it an enormous information basis. I will be starting on October 2nd and am very excited. In obtaining this I given my two-weeks notice to the daycare of which I’ve only been back working a month and a half. No one said anything and I’m okay with that. I do feel terrible though because I was given the job as I’d left a year and a half ago as a Lead Teacher. I love the kids, I really do but I can’t honestly survive on $9.00 an hour. Just not happening. This is perfect timing as well for a few different reasons. As you know, I’ve been accepted into UND and am on the chopping block on which direction to head. Being at the daycare it was a given – GO BACK TO COLLEGE. But I’m currently being faced with a potential and amazing career path that suits many of the desires that I have on a professional basis. School will still be on a platter next to my bed but I need to weigh my life goals both personally and professionally. Starting a new career now can help me become more financially stable and in turn I will ‘hopefully’ obtain the things in my life that I’ve been waiting for since I was a little girl: a house, husband, and babies. I want to be a wife and mother. I want the American dream of having a family in a beautiful house and am in the process of that with my amazing boyfriend but neither of us will move forward if we are stuck at dead end jobs or if I post-pone for school for another three years. I’m taking this as a sign from the Heavens that things are going to start getting better as the year 2012 has been a bitch.
