I'm a 20 year old girl who has been going to college for the past two years to get into the nursing program.
I'm also a very indecisive 20 year old girl who has never been sure this is what I'm meant to do.
I guess I've always thought.. you should know what you're meant to do with your life. Do I think I'd enjoy nursing? Sure.. for a while. But I don't think I'd want to make it my career.
This didn't just spring onto me one day. I've been thinking about it probably for the past six months. But something did spring on me. It was when my mom said to me.. "You know, I always pictured you as an elementary school teacher."
The truth is, I think I've always thought the same. I've at least always thought I should be a teacher. I'm pretty sure I couldn't handle high schoolers, and don't want to deal with the puberty ridden middle schoolers.. so why not elementary school? First.. possibly second grade.
I think that sounds like an excellent plan. And it feels like I've finally found what I want to do with my life. I want to be an unappreciated, underpaid teacher. I really do.
