This will be my first ever blog post! Welcome everyone, I want to give some information about myself so you can get a sense of who this writing these words of wisdom. I am a Canadian girl in her 20’s who is returning to school for Business Administration. I have had an interesting start to my life. After I finished college I went into a program that I had no idea what I was getting myself into; like many fresh out of high school kids. I went into studies in healthcare, and I knew in a matter of weeks that it wasn’t a life long career for me. I finished my studies and got a job a week after graduation. I started at a level entry care position for children. I truly loved it, and going to work for me was fun. After a few months past I was given a promotion; which was exciting since I was only 19 and getting more money was cool. With this promotion came with many more responsibilities like any other job promotion. I was the youngest employee to be in a leadership role with the company. I was a supervisor of a residence for medically fragile children. I thrived at the job and being in a leadership role was fun for me. This job had many benefits but also came with challenges. I barely had a social life; I rarely saw my friends and family. It was hard for me. After being in the new position for a while I started to hate going to work. Coworkers would tell me “get out while you can”; which got me thinking. I knew healthcare was not for me; the hours were too unpredictable and I wanted to do the things my friends were doing. So after long consideration, and many sleepless nights I decided that the best thing for me to do was to go back to school.
The next day I told my boss; we both cried but agreed it was the best course of action for my future (she was pretty cool about it). I moved back into my parents house after living on my own for 3 years, and took some time off.
Of course the time off didn’t last long; I love to work. This brought me to getting a job with American Eagle at the local mall. The work atmosphere is 100% different from my last job; in a good way. Everyone there is around my age, and it’s fun.
After missing out on many activities with my friends and family I have been trying to catch up on lost time. Every weekend my friends want to do something fun, and my family is always doing something together. During this time I went to the Open House at the local college. I thought living at home and driving to school would be the best decision financially. After speaking with the course coordinator for Business Administration I was hooked. It was completely different from my previous career path, and I was excited.
Now here I am! I’m finishing my first semester soon of the program, and I’m loving it. I’m very excited for the future, and what is to come.
