well, i did it. i quit my new job. well, walked out rather. i couldn't take being treated like a nuisance for being new and not knowing what to do. after a week and one day of having far too much down time at my desk with no direction, i left. i have an interview with a previous employer that would free up enough time for me to go back to school. BUT i just looked at all of the requirements for the RTEC program i want to do. i dont have any prior biology courses so that puts me at a disadvantage AND they only accept 10 students per semester! plus, the need for radiologists isn't AS high so come 2014 , there might not be a need for someone like me. plus, working at the previous place i worked at is a serious pay DECREASE, but frees up more time for Audrey. i'm really hoping and praying i made the right decision and that i get accepted, if not for the fall term, at least for the spring term next may. it will be tight money-wise, but if i don't try now and start this now, when will i go back to school? plus, if i get denied for the RTEC course, i can always become a CNA in the mean time and work at a hospital for a bit more money per hour. it's just that i really want this now.... i'm making all the necessary steps.... it's just a bit difficult treading unknown waters.
a friend once told a debtor on the phone "short term pain for long term gain." i wasn't sure of his sincerity, but the phrase certainly rings true now. i just hope that the short term pain isn't 4 years of pain and is simply 2 or 3 at the most. it's like i can almost taste my dream.... like watching cookies baking. you can almost taste them, but if you take them out too soon they are raw and mushy and gross. if you take them out too late they are crispy, burnt, and have lost their sweetness. i'm hoping that i'm not too late or rushing too soon. i want my dream, this cookie, to come out JUST RIGHT! (why do i always have food analogies?)
