Snowflake Posted January 17, 2009 Share Posted January 17, 2009 Well, I have a new title. Since everyone HAS to have a label and be pigeon-holed, that being how the big world works, I have traded in the label of "un-employed" for "full-time student". As of today, I am registered for four online classes at a college I attended in my teens and look to need seven additional classes after this batch to fulfill my Associates in Business Administration. I will then transfer shiny new Associates to the local BIG college and get a Bachelors in Healthcare Administration. Heck, if there are NO jobs left in this state, everyone will still need the hospital! So, as is expected of me, I landed on my feet and am taking this opportunity to "re-train" and get a better paying job when I hit the bricks again. I made a quick check of everything that's available in my area for jobs with the skills I have and the pickings were small and the pay was smaller. This is my window and it won't be open forever, so I'm diving out, just like Chuck Norris! Now if my brain doesn't melt, I'll be golden! Take care, all, and keep fighting. There will always be some stress in life, some challenge to overcome. Change is scary, loss of control is terrifying, but losing a job sure as hell isn't like hearing someone tell you you have cancer or that it's more extensive than you thought! THAT news sucked the oxygen out of the room, losing my job set off a minor panic reaction, but reasoning talked that back down. Nope, this is big, but it ain't "that big" - I will survive, big girl panties and all! (And heck, if I drop MORE weight with this diet, maybe I'll add a garter belt and stockings!) xxoo, Becky Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
