I’m feeling like a chicken running around with my head cut off.
I finished 19 chapters of book work for Phlebotomy in.. 11 days. I took the final on the 12th day of being in class. I’m going to be spending most of my time next week in driving class to refresh my memory on how to do that shizz. I do “pokes” on Thursday, sticking people with needles for the first time ever. After I get the vein successfully 25 times, I go off to do a week of clinicals. After that, the only thing left is the certification exam, which is national. *nervous* Ugh. I also have to do a 3 day class called “exit” at some point, which is mandatory for me to graduate from Job Corps. I’m not 100% sure where I’ll be after I leave/finish up. I’m hoping my dad will let me stay with him through the summer, until Fall Quarter starts. I’m going to be going back to the community college I attended previously, to get my Associate of Arts and Science degree finished up. I think it’ll only take two quarters, thankfully. After that, hopefully I’ll be going to a university to get a bachelor’s.
I’ve been stressing out like mad due to the stupid bitches in my dorm, as well as the dumb twats in my room. I have nothing against sharing living space with females. I do have something against sharing living space with moronic teenagers who think they’re hot shit. People who think it’s a GREAT idea to go on a weekend pass/personal leave, so they can try to get pregnant, when they’re 18, and have nothing going on in their life. People who have never held a job, never lived on their own, but think they know everything. It’s ever so slightly ridiculous. I will freely admit I do plenty of stupid things still. I have, however, learned a lot from the major fuck ups I made in the past, and believe me, there were some big ‘uns.
Um, what else? I miss my friends, I miss my son, I miss my family… I got back in touch with a friend of mine from when I attended college before, so that was back when I was 16. It has been really nice catching up. During my downtime at Job Corps I’m typically reading, playing on my laptop, and texting. Mostly my buddy from college and one other person.
Speaking of one other person… he’s someone I’ve known as an online friend for approximately three years. He had become my “adopted big brother” (because my actual older brother is a bit of a prat), but things have shifted a bit the last couple of weeks. I had a bit of a crush on him for a fair amount of time, but I always buried it and ignored it, because his friendship is really valuable to me, and I didn’t want to fuck it up. Well, things came to light that we both are interested in each other, so now I don’t feel guilty at all for flirting. Not only that, we had talked about hanging out previously, but it was always as a vague “Oh man, we totally need to do that sometime!” rather than anything definite. Since things have changed/since I’m going to have a bit of money, I’m planning to go visit him the end of June, which I’m really looking forward to. I don’t think I’ve ever had anyone who makes me so flustered or makes me blush so much, in my entire life. Humorous, but awkward. Go figure.
In short, I’m keeping myself busy, keeping myself entertained, and plotting for the future. Here’s hoping that by the next time I post I’ll be a nationally certified phlebotomy technician, have my driver’s license, and have ironed out the wrinkles regarding going back to college this fall (I applied for FAFSA ages ago, etc, I just need to figure out where I’ll be living).
Cheers, lovelies. Take care of yourselves
