I ran into an old friend while shopping and learned something, from now on I'll stay positive and not negative

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.


That’s great that you are shifting to a more positive mindset! Are you still pursuing a BSN?

Yes after my BSN I’m thinking of doing a full loan for a second bachelor’s degree while working as a nurse.

I really love astronomy and chemistry, biology so on :slight_smile: Plus physics.

Are you in nursing classes with clinicals now?

From time to time there are clinical rotations, plus it’s a fun degree.

That’s great! Do you have plans for the summer? When are you supposed to graduate?

I never take breaks summer, spring or fall, I’m around the clock taking courses and speeding up my processor, have to speak to my Uni advisor when will I finish, good question.

:musical_note: I don’t take Naps me and the courses are way to attached to go and that. :musical_note: :musical_note: Staying up 18 hours a day, I can never relax :musical_note: :musical_note: Tat on my grades, like I do not know what permanented is :musical_note:

What classes are you taking this semester and over the summer?
