I Wish Decisions Were Easy

The past few weeks have been more difficult than normal. My budget is really tight these days--with student loans to pay and Christmas & birthdays coming up in a few weeks. Last Friday I had a Starbucks date with two of my friends, and they were telling me everything that has happened since my job with FOCUS was terminated (NO I wasn't fired...) with the coordinators and other mentors. It made me realize how much I miss working with college students, and there are potentially 2 job openings in the near future that would allow me to work with college students.

The big problem is, what about grad school? I'm 90% finished with my last Occupational Therapy application, and I've decided that if I don't get in this time then it's not meant to be for right now. What about the program here at A&M for Health Administration? I love my job at the assisted living home, and getting my MHA would seem appropriate. Plus, Andrew will be here for 2+ years getting his Master's degree too.

So, do I try for a full time position to shove myself into "adulthood" faster and work my life away? And I know that if I do get a full time job I would be much less likely to go back to grad school later. Or do I keep attempting to further my education for the potential to do better in whatever field I go into?

Ugh. Sometimes I hate life. And making hard decisions. How do you make these big life decisions? Help!


  1. Wow, these are pretty big decisions. My first piece of advice would be to do what your gut tells you. I know that's pretty much a cop out & basically saying 'I have no damn clue what you should do,' but it's true. Most of the time you already know what you want to do deep down inside :)

  2. Go with your gut... Seriously.. You have that feeling in the pit of your stomach that's telling you what to do. Go with that. I didn't aaaaaaand I got my arse fired... Trust me when I say your gut does not lie!
