After I posted my status the other day (One month from today I begin my next big adventure... moving to the states! I don't know whether to get all giddy or to go curl up and cry... maybe I'll do both...), I realized that many of you don’t really know what’s going on, so I figured I should probably give an update!! So here are all the “Ws”…
When: August 7th- who knows exactly when?!? I’m planning to be back in Guate over Christmas and probably summer as well though.
What: I will be moving to the states to go to college. I’ll be studying nursing with the potential of going on to get my Nurse Practitioners license.
Where: Pennsylvania. I’ll be living with my aunt and uncle around the same area that we were living before our family moved down here. I’ll be attending a community college REALLY close to where I’ll be living.
Why: Although I did look into a bunch of colleges around here (Guate), I decided that now would be a good time to head stateside and be on my own a little bit. Yes, it will mean a lot of changes, but sometimes change is needed!!
So there you have it… a very quick update about what’s going on with my future! I know multiple people have mentioned getting together for coffee, lunch, etc., once I get back, and just know that I would love to!! I would kind of like to get settled in and adjusted, but I really am hoping to reconnect with a lot of people!! J
And, just because, here are a few pictures from life around here (from my phone) lately… J
