Diary of a Career Changer

Follow your bliss

I had a career ephiphany almost a year ago and after researching and interviewing a gal in the field, I've made a decision that I will be going back to school to become an Occupational Therapist with a concentration on working with geriatrics.

I'm in my early 30's and here are a few things about me:

I recently got engaged and am to be married 8/14/10! We've known for a while that we'd be married, but it's nice to have an official date! I have a Boston Terrier named Lucy that we love spending time with and some might even call me a bit obsessed with her.

Like: working on my house, cooking, elephants, How I Met Your Mother, Boston Terriers, pretending I'm in a tropical location in the dead of winter, hanging out with my fiance, jeeping, camping, old people

Dislike: tonic, people that flake out, the smell of hops, angry drivers, unecessary drama, people that are either extremely liberal or republican, bugs inside my house
