I decided today to take a big step. If all goes well, I will be in nursing school by the end of the month.
I have avoided getting serious about a career for many years. I didn’t want to grow up. I have been comfortable managing beer and wine stores and being taken advantage of by my boss. I am burnt out now. And I do not want to be involved when he gets in trouble for avoiding paying taxes and other things he does. I make less than $2.00 above minimum wage for being a General Manager. He refuses to give me a raise and I accepted it. I have no benefits and am lucky to have government health insurance.
Anyway, I hope everything turns out right. I am crossing my fingers, toes and eyes.
