Good evening, users
I was shopping yesterday and came across an old friend, who still works the same retail job that I left 8 years ago in 2014.
I was telling her my situation about million obsession and she scoffed it off.
She told me she’s been in the retail bakery ever since the store opened and I should be lucky that I’m in pursuit for my BSN degree.
“You don’t know how lucky you are to pursue a BSN”
“I don’t have what it takes tackle 6 classes like you”
“I would do anything just to be in you’re shoes and finish off college”
2 more years will be a decade for her in the bakery. It’s not a fun job to do.
Working as a nurse is better than working in the bakery and making $15 per hour when you can make $30 to $40 per hour depending on the COLA in the area and building experience from that to a health professional, that’s what she told me.
I don’t have it that bad I guess, I should be glad I made it to that milestone.
I don’t feel negative thoughts anymore, actually I feel happy now. That conversation brought some senses back to me and hit really deep.
This week on Thursday I’m going to speak again to a career counselor.
