a little bit of scholarly love

alright, its that time of year again. already. school is starting up, for all the little kiddies, high schoolers, collegiates, you name it. it is that time of year that the stores are slammed with people purchasing clothes and school supplies. it is kind of sad to say that this is something i do not participate in anymore.

don't get me wrong... overall, i don't really miss it that much. i have an associate's degree, which is more than most can say that hold cosmetology licenses. i'm young, but i spent plenty of time dabbling around in different subjects and professions until i decided what i really wanted to do. hair. something creative.

there was a time when i wanted to be a radiology tech, and the timing was just not right. then, i wanted to be a physical therapist... until i got a job in the physical therapy department at the hospital... nope no thanks. wound care, not my cup of tea. also, neither are the patients who are constipated for weeks and then void their bowels as soon as you get them up to walk them to the scale. because of these disgusting and most of the time ridiculous experiences of mine, i do have a tremendous respect for those in the medical profession... cnas, rns, drs, pts, ots, etc.

i sometimes miss school, homework, just for the simple order of things. taking notes and doing homework assignments, and placing them neatly in their section in my binder.... i like order when it comes to paperwork and such. i was also a really good student, a's, b's... but this is going to sound really terrible, i just do not like to use my brain for this type of thing. don't get me wrong, i am very smart.. but i find it all very boring and hard to focus on, even though i might be good at it. i just prefer to use my brain in other, more creative ways i suppose. maybe i am one of those few who have "a.d.d" but was never diagnosed with it, because it was before the time when kids were being diagnosed with it left and right.

ok so anyways, back to my point here. somebody very cute and very important to me has decided to go back to school. this has happened before, but it hasn't really stuck yet... so yesterday, i set out to battle the crowded school supply section and long lines at target (after i worked a 5am shift, mind you) and put together a nice little care package of school supplies. it feels good to me, to give someone that extra little push. to be a study buddy... nay... more of a study-and-make-sure-you-go-to-class nazi. education is an important thing, and although there are those out there like me who are bored by it, it is still pretty vital in this world. to build yourself a career that you can love, and work your way up in it... instead of just having a job, maybe the same old mind numbing job for years on end, just because you know nothing else.

it is a start, and it is a good start. we will see how this all goes, but i am optimistic... probably because there has never been that evil mary with a hot poker under your butt motivation before.
