.my craziness of thoughts.

This post is mostly just for my siblings to know what i've been thinking and doing lately, you can give me advice if you feel the need.
a few weeks ago i got glasses to see if my vision was part of my headache problem. it wasnt and i returned them.

my hours at work got cut in half because im so efficient and they dont have enough work to give me to fill a 40 hour week.

i changed my mind about being a pastry chef and looked at some beauty schools. i made a plan to get an associates in business and a hair cutting certificate and open a salon. then i changed my mind. i looked at the bryman school, they give assisting certificates in the medical feild. i thought about radiology (x-rays and sonograms and such) but thats too much math for me. medical assisting (like a family doctors assistant) but blood is not my forte. dental assisting, cavities plaque and drilling teeth is gross. BUT... dental assisting in an orthodontic office equals nothing too disgusting. so i thought about that. and im still thinking. i went an toured the school and i like it. its a nine month program including an externship, i will get a certificate that i can come in and update anytime im feeling rusty for free. its valid anywhere in the US and it sounds good to me. but im not sure, it would create stable and nicely paying job opportunities for me, but i dont know if i would be really happy doing it.

at the beginning of the year i had a plan to buy a car within 4 months, my job gave me enough money to allow that. now if i dont get a second job it will be longer. im bummed, i have been trying really hard though. ive been going through spending all my money withdrawls. i know how rebecca bloomwood (confessions of a shopaholic) feels.

i want to plant some flowers in the back yard. i wanted to plant them against the back wall of mom and dads bedroom but dad said no (he didnt tell me why not) he wants them by the pool. i think this summer the kids will trample them though.

anyway, thats been me the last month. love you all.

Hey Katie,
You know, any job in the medical field would be a great choice. You would be a fantastic nurse. My sis in law, Sarah, is a nurse and she loves it. You have a good personality for it. A dental or orthodontic assistant is good too. My neighbor in Florida was a dental assistant and she was able to work 2+ days a week and have medical insurance and work around her kids schedules. You know, if the choice is between hair, food, and medical assisting, and the schooling is about the same (time wise) why not go with medical? You would have to work less hours and earn more money and get better bennefits.
Anyways, just some thoughts back to you.
Love you, Lisa

Hey beautiful lady,
About not knowing if you will be happy in that field... my thought was anything that brings stability and peace of mind brings joy. Having a fallback career is so smart. My neighbor is a nurse and she is working four days a week right now while her husbands work is slow in construction and they are so greatful she has the job. I love you.

you should be a professional ninja killer. i hired one of those for graduation cuz i heard the asian club was going to prank us...well...they never got to prank us!

just do something you won't regret and can use your whole life katie. don't eat out a lot, don't buy gold fish, only buy clothes that i like. stuff like that could help you save money. you know.
