I was 13 years old when I decided I wanted to be a nurse.
In all honesty, I thought I was going to be a nurse who got my bachelor's and worked with children who had cancer. Sometimes things change.
Prior to being 13 years old, I always had those unrealistic dreams that every kid had, and then quickly, possibly irrationally, wanted to be a nurse.
My Grandmom got sick at a young age, and she had nurses in and out of the house caring for her, and along the way, I got trained myself. I was 14 years old, and I was doing things that nurses did.
I was super fortunate to have those amazing nurses that trained me and helped me become knowledgeable about her condition.
I decided I would go to a technical school to study Allied Health and further my education and get on the right path. Well, I spent the past four years learning about the human body, HIPPA, medications, drug calculations, and diseases.
I decided I would go to school for nursing, and I did exactly that.
I have always felt in need of a career that could physically help someone out. As life progresses, and things happen I feel like I can potentially help someone out in a different way.
Life has not always shown me the best, and I've seen a lot of people fall ill, and go in and out of hospitals. With all that has happened, it taught me life is too short.
I want to do something fun and full of adventures. Nursing is an amazing way of helping people, but I feel like I can't do that anymore.
I always had it in my mind that I chose my career path when I was young, and I never explored the career options that I could potentially have, so I just stayed on that track.
When I moved down south, it really allowed me to grow and make my own decisions. My family has always been the most supportive group of people in my entire life, but I was always pushed to do nursing, and be the best nurse I can possibly be.
I decided nursing really is not something I want to do anymore... and that's OK!
I changed my major to English, with a minor in journalism. I have always loved writing, and after long consideration, even with endless ideas on what I will do with that, I don't know. I am mainly looking into travel blogging with a bit of communications.
This life is too short to do something you don't want to do.
I thankfully learned it in my first semester of college, rather than a few years into it. I have no idea where life will take me, but I'm okay with going with the flow. I had a plan for the last five years, and now I can just roll with the punches.
I am excited to be living in Florida and have all these opportunities given to me. I am beyond excited to see where the next few years take me.
