Hey, rune!  How the heck have you been?  I got a bit disgruntled on the ol' AR debate board and decided it was time I skedattled for a bit at least.  I seriously lost my temper over some Army training thread, but then it hit pretty close to home all things considered. 

So, entering nursing school, eh?  As someone who just completed it, good luck on that second career!

[QUOTE=DesertKat;722164]What can I say?  It took me a while.  I was an archaeologist after graduating with my first BA but I blew out my knee and went back to school to become a teacher after pressure from my parents.  I taught secondary science for four years and returned to school to get a BS in nursing and have just started a job in psychiatric nursing.[/QUOTE]

Thanks, that really inspires me and makes me feel better, kat:)

*waves at paula*  hey there!  good to see you too.  you are one of those people who left a voice in my head when i was away.  if you know what i mean.....it was a good thing. really.  hee.  you never once told me to kill anyone....;)

three careers, four.....

i dunno. i guess i look at life more as a process than a destination.  if you got an education in something, and do it, that's great. if it stops being something you enjoy, and you go back and get more training for something else, and go do that, and enjoy it, it's not WASTING time, money, or a degree in something else. it's just you, taking the journey of your life and your evolving interests and outlooks.  i don't think most of us are geared to stay doing the same thing our whole lives, if we really don't have to.  i know i'm not. 

give yourself permission to change.  it's really an okay thing.

Thanks Rune! I got a job in HR at a big corporation. Today was my third day, and I really like it so far. It's temporary (6 weeks) but they told me it could be permanent. It feels good to shake off old bad feelings....
