that is how my nose looks right now, because I have a really REALLY bad cold, and my nose is very sore too. I can't believe we are at the end of the year already, at first it started off slow and now it just flew by. 2012 has been difficult for me but I am happy to say that I made it. I feel so independent and so accomplished that I am ready for what 2013 has in store for me. One of my dreams for next year is to get my first aid certificate, and to get into nursing. Helping people is one of the many things I have a great joy in doing, and getting my first aid certificate is the first step in order for me to help people feel well, and possibly save a life.
No educational adventure is ever a waste. This will even help me take care of my own little ones whenever I have children. I mean I was a girl guide many years ago and got my first aid badge, but i need something more, and getting educated with red cross is the way for me to go. I even got a suggestion from someone, and that is volunteering with the Canadian Red Cross. So if it takes me a while to save up the money I need to pay for a first aid course, I can at least do volunteer work. That is my dream for 2013, and I just have to take it one day at a time, but most importantly never give up on my dreams.
Journalism wasn't a waste of time for me, it actually helped me become a better writer and to get to know people and their stories. Everyone has a story to tell, it's just sharing it can be the hard part for most people. Many of my friends have embarked on new adventures ever since they graduated from journalism. Some have moved out from their parent's houses to get a fresh start in life, some have even continued their education at different schools. I have one friend in a plumbing program right now, and I have another friend who is now in programing.
You never know where life will take you, it can branch off in many different directions, and most of the time you have to explore and see what is best suited for your life. . You never know until you try things out, and the only way you have the feelings of regret is when you don't try it out. I never thought I would be in a journalism program, but I got into it I learned many things, and i have no regrets. If you don't like something don't worry about it, at least you know you tried it out.
One of my journalism professors said this to my class last year:
"If you feel like you are in the wrong program, just stick it out anyway since you never know what you can learn, that you can apply to future endeavors. "
anyway that's it for my journaling. I need to go lie down before my head explodes XD.
