I Went Back to School!

back to school

The decision to return to school is never easy, especially if you’ve been out of the classroom for a while. The word “college” was never brought up in my household, while I was growing up. The only thing that I thought was that you were supposed to get a job when you graduated from high school, which is exactly what I did. The same went for my then boyfriend, now husband. We found ourselves working 2 and 3 jobs just to support ourselves. It was never easy and there wasn’t any time to go back to school and get a degree. I worked many different jobs since I graduated in 1988; anywhere from being a waitress to inspecting 18 wheel chemical trucks. As many of you know, I am a full-time nanny for 2 different families and as much as I enjoy my job, it’s not something I wish to continue to do. I spend so much time taking care of other people’s families that I lose out on taking care of my own. And, at any time, the family can decide that they don’t need me and you have to move on to the next family. This is such a difficult process, especially if you get attached to the children. What makes it so bad is that I have been doing this difficult process for the last 10 years and I feel like I want to do something else with my life. I went back to school, all online, at the University of Phoenix in 2102. I received my Associate’s in Business in 2014. All I obtained was a piece of paper. I honestly thought with all of my previous work experience and that expensive piece of paper, I was going to get that great job. It never happened, so I continued to nanny. A few weeks ago, I started to see all of these jobs regarding Medical Billing and Coding. There are an abundance of these job; not only in actual workplaces, but at home and you can even start you own business. That did it for me. I started school at Devry, two weeks ago. I have no idea as to where this is going to take me but why not try. If any of my Wunderful readers has any information, I would love and appreciate hearing from you.
