# Autum.. the teacher?
Thursday, November 1, 2012 / permalink
So I am 28 and I really haven't been that sure where my life has been going. Yes, I am married, yes I have various skills in various things, but even with all that it's been a weird road for me educationally speaking. So the very first time I started college,  I started pretty late (2006) by this time I was already 22, 4 years later than most people start college. I just got my GED then and picked early childhood education. I completed a semester and learned that I didn't really like little little kids. It's not that I don't like them, just that I don't find them as endearing as other people. So I then decided to do photography, I completed almost 2 years of that. I then decided, hey, this is costing me a lot of money I don't have, but really, what did I expect going to the art institute? Not only that but the job market was extremely bleak. I am a great animal lover. I love helping animals. I knew the road I wanted to take was to help animals. That's when I started school to become a veterinary technology student. I loved it. It was very stressful, but I knew that is what I wanted to do with my life. About 6 months into school I had to put my 18 year old cat Purrty to sleep. It was the hardest and most traumatizing event of my adult life. Even Though I loved animals, I had to stop my path to become a veterinary technician. I can't even think about a vet's office without getting a pang of panic and sadness. I knew I couldn't deal with that on a daily basis, sure I would be helping animals, but I don't have the guts for it. I really don't. So at this point my husband is pissed at me because I am already like $18,000 or more in debt from student loans. Now I think I want to go back to the education field. I want to do something I can do anywhere, and I was really good and creating curriculum (yes I did take classes before). I think I will keep this mostly to myself, because I don't want people to see me fail again. Every Time I decide something, I am always so optimistic, so I hope I can be 100% with this. So here is the coursework for the transfer program into Ashland University.
