This afternoon, my family came home from camping! It’s an annual event that they go on with several other Filipino families during this time of year. The reason I didn’t go with them was because I had to stay home, wait for an important phone call for my brother, and work. I never end up enjoying myself, anyway. :X Apparently, though, they went to an outlet mall for a bit of shopping. My mom bought me this cute dress at Ann Taylor Loft. : )
Although it’s already nearing the end of summer, I could always find ways to incorporate my warmer-weather clothes into other seasons. For example, I love the look of black tights and boots with a floral dress. I know it’s a bit early to already be thinking of these things, but I’m too excited for Fall fashion. :P Besides, I can’t take this heat anymore! I can barely stay in my room for more than a minute without breaking a sweat. I’ve been living in my basement this entire season. D;
But with going back to school comes new stresses and anxieties. Lately, I’ve been losing a lot of sleep over worrying about my education and future. I used to be a Nursing major, but recently switched over to Health Science when I realized that it wasn’t for me. Unfortunately, hospitals and clinics only tend to hire nurses in the state of this economy. =/ I know finding a job will be difficult after graduation, but I know that if I keep working hard, good things will come to me.
I’ve already decided that my specialty during senior year will be Medical Dosimetry and Radiation Therapy. I think it would be amazing if I could help treat cancer patients for a living. Each of the classes only have five to seven available seats, though, which scares me a lot. I’ve spent countless hours during this week alone doing research on different Oncology programs in New York that I could apply for after graduation. But just the thought of not knowing where I’ll end up in life makes me nauseous. All I know is that I don’t want to spend half of my life in school, and then the other half working to pay off my debts through student loans. : (
I mean, I don’t want an overly luxurious life. If anything, the three things I want the most right now out of my future are 1) a nice apartment/house, 2) to be able to support my own family if I choose to have one, and 3) a walk-in closet.
