Looking forward to the future

Tonight was filled with happy thoughts about my future.

I am so glad I am pursuing this career in nursing. I know I have a long way to go, but I really feel like this is what I was supposed to do with my life. I never felt this positive or good about getting my journalism degree all those years ago. I am definitely excited about nursing school (when I get in -- still have two pre-reqs to go) and I can't wait to be an RN so I can truly help people. What a change in perspective from the world of journalism, where everyone is convinced you, as a reporter, are out to get them and make lives miserable.

Anyway, I had lots of warm fuzzy thoughts while using the elliptical tonight. Maybe it's the endorphins talking, but things look bright for me and my family. It's a nice feeling. :-)

We're going to a birthday party in the morning. It starts at 9 a.m. and it's a 20-minute drive for us. Geez, that is unnaturally early for a Sunday party! They'd better have cake!

Oh, and anyone needing a good laugh should check out David's blog entry about farts. Seriously. It's a gas. ("Boo!!! Hiss!!!! Get the hook!!!")

Today's stats:
Time: 30 minutes (body toning program)

So glad you're happy with the road to nursing! It really helps when you have an idea of what you want to be when you grow up, huh? :-)
