I am 33 and will be 34 this year. Oh how I wish that I knew 10 years ago what I know today. Currently I work a 40 hour a week job as a cafeteria manager for the local school district where we live. I am thankful for my job but going there every day reminds me of why I also go to college 4 nights a week plus 2 online classes. The school schedule is great since it goes right in line with the kid's schedules but summer is coming up and I have some major decisions to make in regards to going back to work at the school district and what am I going to do through the summer.
So today we made some decisions about what we are going to do. When I get the 2nd installment of my student loan money, I am going to enroll in a CNA program from June to July. This is something that when it's mine, it's mine. It opens up some doors in terms of employment and it will help when I finish Paramedic school.
I am secretly hoping I can find a position this summer that will not only bring in an income but also allow me to not have to go back to the school district. How I wish I would have thought about career path and steps to get where I was going when I was 23 how different life at 33 would be.
