|"What should I do? What career should I pursue?"|
Going away to college…just writing the words hauls up the memories of anticipation and excitement.
Since 8th grade I had been planning for college. My future career changed frequently, depending on what book I was reading at the time. One day I would decide to be a nurse, after reading the biography of Florence Nightengale. The next day I wanted to be a doctor, after reading about Louis Pasteur.
With college, the options opened wide for a farm girl from an isolated rural area.
I still can sense the nervousness of signing up for classes and planning the schedule. Buying the books was a shock; $28 for one textbook! Can you imagine!
But those years are long past. I have taken many post-graduate courses, bought many textbooks ($150 for one textbook!). Even now, when the local community college course catalog arrives, I find myself looking through it with that same sense of excitement.
But things have changed, as the needs of life change. The course titles for my group are very different.
Take note of the recent classes for the workforce and community development:
*Tie-Dye, parts 1, 2, and 3!
*What Were You Born to Do?! Find out!
*Be Forever Stress-Free with EFT!
There are, of course, other courses for vocation and career changes. Those courses will be invaluable to the younger generation seeking careers and such. But, for me? A person who lists "writer" as an occupation?
Somehow, I am drawn to “Mastering the Bandsaw!”
