been mighty quiet
I've been the world's worst blogger this past week. I don't know why but I haven't felt much like writing ANYTHING. I think the fact that I have been out of work for 6 months now is starting to get to me. it's sucking energy out of me. I'm not a good unemployed person. I thought I would be but I suck. and I also thought it would be super duper easy for me to find a new job but apparently in this economy, even a nurse with 14 almost 15 years of experience can't find a job. so now I am having to entertain thoughts of switching careers. I've come up with several plans/schemes. they're all viable believe it or not and they all involve going back to school. I wish I could just go to school for a job because it seems like I spend a crap load of time there. anyway, my ideas were and they are in no particular order.
a) going to cosmetology school. yeah I know. Beauty School Dropout.Lalalala.
b)getting my legal nurse consultant certification and going to work for an attorney.
c)going to midwifery school and being a midwife at a birthing center.
d)getting an advanced degree in history and teaching at community college or high school.
yes, these are my options. I've gotta get something lined up so I can shake off whatever funk of unemployment that is weighing me down and keeping me from being non productive. I've got 2 active WIPs and 2 ideas that I am developing and now is not the time for me to be cracking!
