So I've Been Thinking...

I spend a huge chunk of my days looking for jobs, applying for jobs, and feeling like a loser b/c I still don't have a job. As a person with a degree, I feel like an epic fail...but at least I'm trying!
It seems kinda late in life for me to be thinking about school again, even after the online classes I took to get my teaching certification. (I actually applied for an art teaching position today). I have been walking down this bumpy road of not know what I want to do with my life (besides watch anime... being an anime voice actor sounds like fun) I know I don't want to be in retail forever, and opening up my own kitschy shop sounds amazing but unrealistic. Then it came to me! Art Therapy! I was a psych major before I was an art major, but that means going back to school and getting a masters... which is lots of time and money. I have some more thinking to do, but at least I have an idea for the future....

I'm actually working on the same thing. Except I have to go back and take the art courses necessary. I'm already a teacher. There are only a few legit "Art Therapy" programs in each region. There is a great online program with a few weeks in house at St. Mary of the Woods in Indiana.

I have been following your blog and thanking you all the time for making me feel like I have some company on this voyage! I already have one masters and am almost 30. My husband is military and I'm constantly moving. Plenty of challenges here!

You can do it!

Never close any doors and be willing to try anything if that is what you want!
