Have you ever seen that show Community? Ok well if you haven’t (and to be truthful- I’ve seen the very first episode on Netflix and gave up after that) but whatever the premise is a lawyer has to go back to a community college to finish up college credits. Funny, right? It’s my life right now. I’m living the ‘Community’ life. And frankly I’m enjoying it. I feel eighteen again. Among the group of young people are your fair share of the random forty year olds still trying to figure it out. I’m totally not the one to judge them. Hell at forty I hope I have the balls enough to go back to school to keep my dream alive.
Ok back the topic. Stay focused! That’s the other thing. This whole new era of being back in the college mind-set at 25 (26 in a month) is making me feel so ADD. I’m loving it. I’m back to myself again. Back to the forty year old in the community college class- they have it all right. They don’t want to let go of their golden years. The days of college were just too damn good for them to let go of. They might have tried the real world for a few years, got married, had children- the whole kit and kaboodle. And BAM. What happened? The realization that the days of sitting in college listening to the professor ramble about history in a chemistry class was actually really awesome. So they enroll in community college. I just figured it all out.
My morning coffee and a realization of what life is really like in community college. This is my last semester (hopefully) before I am in nursing school. It is actually weird saying nursing school. I never imagined I would go to nursing school, it was never a passion for me. But in the last couple of years I just chose it. It’s about time my life revolve around something more than just day-dreaming about lofty entrepreneurial ideas they may never happen or hoping back over to Barcelona to spend the rest of my life. I realized (with the help of unfortunate bank account) that I needed a career path. Nursing seemed fit. The more I am working towards it, the more I am getting excited about it.
Happy Saturday, my friends.
oh and tomorrow- I am taking pictures of my beautiful pregnant sister in St. Augustine. I am going to use a FILM camera. So vintage. Cerca 1995..
