.... I didn't get into the nursing program
This is all extremely stressful to say the least. My dreams of helping people, working in a bustling hospital, and living out my Grey's Anatomy fantasy life has been tossed out the window.
So maybe I wasn't meant to be a nurse and it took the harsh reality of not getting into the program to let me know that. I don't regret the classes I've taken (except Medical Microbiology, but if you like that class then I question your sanity). The Human Anatomy courses have been one of the most interesting classes I've ever taken and I love every minute of it.
So maybe I'll pursue a different science major, like Chemistry or Biology and take my chances in applying for medical school and follow in the steps of my brother. I will say that watching him go through that makes that option seem less than ideal... Okay so maybe not med school.
Maybe I'll get a major in Criminal Justice and a minor in psychology and work my way up to be a detective. I've always loved CSI and Law and Order......
Either way, the beauty of this entire ordeal is that I get to recreate my future. Essentially, I get to start over. I've decided to not look at this as an end, but a new beginning. And hey, so I'll be in college a little bit longer than normal. Who wants to grow up anyways? The only thing waiting for me after graduation is a job and bills.
So I've decided to sit back and enjoy the ride. Maybe I'll figure out what I want to do with my life along the way.
I'd love to hear similar stories and how everything turned out for you - maybe you didn't get into your dream college or the sorority you wanted or the job you applied for.
Until next time,
