Hard Questions in Life

I think that pretty much every student I know who is on the verge of graduating to life is facing some of the same issues that I am.

- Do I want to stay in school longer?

- Do I want to go out into the real world?

- How do I afford to follow through with a choice?

- Where do I want to live?

- What are my friends planning on doing?

To be honest I always had this plan in highschool that I would go to university, then teacher's college and throughout school find the man of my dreams and get married. Clearly my plan became more than a little sidetracked and changed this past year.

My life currently stands at living at home, taking my college diploma online, and working part-time. I am more than a little confused about what to do after I graduate next summer.

I know I know, focus on the here and now, but I like to have goals to work towards. I have kind of narrowed it down to a couple different choices.

Schools: Apply to go full time or part time at a univeristy OR apply to an online university

Jobs: If I choose to go to school part time I will need a part-time job to help support myself which I will have my ECE diploma to help with this. I can work within a daycare, or within a school.

Places to Live: I really like Ottawa, Guelph and Kingston as potential places to live. Ottawa, and Guelph currently have lots of potential job offerings which would be helpful.

And I'm still looking for Mr. Right, I'm sure that we will catch up soon though.

I'm more than a little frazzled but I'm trying to stay focused on finishing my ECE Diploma by next summer, fingers crossed!

A week in pictures...and some words

Getting ready for our walkathon

Beginning our walk

Exploring the rocks

Walking together

On the way home

On the way to the very first obedience class

Broken tree from thunder storm

Our hydro pole

I didn't mean to have a blogging break last week but sometimes life just comes out of nowhere. I began being busier with work and school and then we had a giant thunderstorm/windstorm which knocked out our hyro for four days. It is nice having everything get back to normal now. My little sister and I participated in a SPCA walk-a-thon and had a blast with the dogs. We raised $100.00 for the SPCA which was our goal. Sophie also attended her very first obedience class, it was nice to see that she misbehaves for everyone not just us LOL. We have been working with her and she will now do sit and watch me for treats as long as she isn't too distracted by the things around her. I hope she continues to improve and grow to be a better behaved dog.
