Three posts, three days? Really?

A couple of days ago I asked people for advice… I got some advice, and did a lot of thinking.
My results? Going back to school ASAP and getting my medic cert and BS-EMS + BSN are the most important things to me right now. So with the exception of an application I’m going to be putting in Ohio, I’m done applying out of state. Any applications that are already out in CO and TX will stand, and I’ll consider offers, if I get any, from those companies. But for the most part, I’m staying in the ABQ NM area.
Thsi took me a while to decide for a lot of reasons. One of them is I want out of this state. In the worst way. Going to Austin and then to TN this summer for interviews and to see someone who used to be very special to me (still is really, but apparently I’m not worth talking to… but that’s antoher story entirely) showed me that I don’t like living in the desert. Especially this desert. I don’t like the people, I don’t like the culture.
But I have a solid support net already here, I know the area, the services, and the state protocols already. I know the schools’ reputations, how they operate.
So, since I’m having such a hard time getting hired with a temp cert, I’m looking for any jobs out there. Starbucks, waiting tables, book store, motorcycle shop… anything that will help me take care of myself till December when I completely nail the state EMT-I test and I can start working on a bus again. I have one service that wants me when that happens, so I’m already doing better here in NM than I was looking at moving to other states.
At this point I’m making my one and only priority school. I want that bachelors degree. I really really fucking want the disco patch.
And guess what? I’m gonna get them both.
