Yep. I titled this after a Katy Perry song. But I prefer to hear Glee sing it, but whatever makes you happy!
It’s thundering and lightning like Ca-Razy out there. I was taking a biology test but wisely saved my answers and exited. Power keeps flickering and of course I can’t find my flashlight. You know, the flashlight I’m constantly moving out of my way because I don’t keep it in the same place? Yeah, that one. I have my cell phone beside me and my laptop on my lap. Feeling a little uncertain about that – what if lightning strikes my computer while it’s on me? Ouch. Yet I push forward…
I posted earlier about being unable to decide where to go next in my college career. I’m revisiting the idea of Speech Pathology. People say they can see me being a Social Worker more then they can see me being a Speech Patholgist. I shouldn’t be motivated by money, but I will admit to my blog readers (all none of you) that I am just a little bit motivated by money. It’s just that, as I mentioned before, getting a Master’s degree to make $35k a year (if I’m lucky) is hard when I can get a Master’s degree in Speech and make $60k a year. Same amount of time – twice the money. Especially when the environment could even be similar – schools, hospitals, kids, developmentally delayed, NICU (teaching babies how to suck), all of that for twice the money. The thought of making 3 times what I’m making now makes me extremely motivated to do even better in school. You have to have a 3.2 GPA to be accepted into the Speech program and I have a 3.13. I have 4 classes left to take, so that can easily be moved either way. Must keep working hard!
This is very loud thunder and it’s 9:38PM – my 3 year old niece’s bedtime. She lives 4 blocks away and I’m guessing she’s not going to sleep anytime soon. Poor girl, she hates storms.
