You may remember awhile ago Kalissa was having trouble deciding if she wanted to be a paramedic or a nurse. Many of you said, “be a nurse”. Many said, “follow your dream”.
A friend of mine was bothered that Kalissa didn’t have her mind made up. I wasn’t…If Kalissa would have been my first or second kid, I’d have been bothered…but she’s my fifth kid. I’ve seen the others change their mind and have trouble deciding but turned out just fine.
Well the decision is in….she picked a nurse.
She’s going to the local community college and has decided to get an apartment there. It was either pay rent or pay gas. Rent won out…besides she wants a college experience and it’s easier to get if you actually live at college.
Part of the trouble with deciding was that she wanted to meet people who didn’t live in our immediate area and get out. I think the decision was an easier one to make after she met her room mate. Her room mate who is a year older than her introduced her to some of the guys. There is a whole bunch of boys who go to that community college to be a John Deere mechanics. As I write this, one is sitting on the couch in my living room….If her giggling is any indication, she won’t have a bit of a problem meeting people other than the kids in the area who go to college there.
And as far as the nursing part goes…she’s a natural. She won’t have any problem with that unless, of course, her social life gets in the way. The count down is on…28 more days and our nest will be empty.
