I’ve been asked this question many times but always with a wink???? I actually started out getting accepted to University for a double major in English and geography. I decided to take a year off-I walked around for the last few months of highschool in a full leg cast-yep hip to ankle for a knee injury I got while babysitting-long story 😉 I worked at KFC and a nursing home for that year and partied-of course!! I then, once again, got accepted back for that double major then turned around and went to college for nursing??? One attraction was the 3yr program (Associates’ Degree). I made the best decision of my life!!! If not for the quick graduation time, I would have been a school teacher and missed out on the best years of my life!!!
Because of becoming an RN, I moved to the USA. I met my husband down here 🙂 <3 ! I have had the BEST 21yrs of my life so far!!
BEST decision ever!!! I LOVE my job and my patients tend to really enjoy me and my weird sense of humour!!! 😉
My family was dumb-founded when I decided to come down here BUT the understood. My Dad reaps the benefits of my living in a NASCAR city 😉 And my Mom loves the fact that it is so much warmer here earlier than where they live!!!
Still, the BEST decision EVER!!!!!
