This weekend was filled with friends, fun, laughter, and a family reunion on Phil's side. It was great to be able to get together with friends, have dinner, and play games. It just makes things a little better when you have that kind of support.
The reunion for his grandpa's side of the family was about an hour away in Pennsylvania so we got a lot of talking time. After the reunion we decided to head over to Hagerstown, MD to go shopping while we were close before we headed home. It's always nice to be able to spend some extra quality time with him doing things that are spontaneous and have such a great time.
On the way home, we started talking about a number of things. One thing, in particular, being what do I want to do with my life? Growing up, teaching was always the number one thought. In fact, this coming January I will have earned my degree in Social Studies and Education. Unfortunately, I'm not so sure that is the road I want to take in life.
For years it was certain that teaching was the way to go, but recently, not so much. Since looking into other graduate programs, I may have found one that would be something that is right up my alley....Human Resources. I love working with people, figuring out things, and coming up with solutions to problems. And, since it is not teaching, there would be no parents to worry about, faculty drama, or students taking things out of context with my "not so political correctness" at times.
I have yet to discuss, in more detail, the program with Phil, but it might be what I end up doing. It will take three years to complete, but the good news is that the classes are on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings for three hours so I totally wouldn't have to worry about too much school on top of a full-time job!
As for now, it is definitely in my thoughts and prayers....hopefully I can figure it all out before the deadline to apply in December.
