Reverb 10: Day 13 - Action (What's Next?)

Today's Reverb 10 prompt:

December 13 – Action

When it comes to aspirations, it’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen. What’s your next step?

(Author: Scott Belsky)

What's next? If that isn't a loaded question in my life these days, I don't know what is.

The answer is, I mostly still don't know.

I know that I will be a nursing student at some point in the future. What I don't know is if that will be in 4 weeks, or more like 9 months. (Wait lists are a somewhat nerve racking thing, and in this case we're praying for a miracle spot in the program to open up sometime before January 6th or so.)

I know with some degree of certainty that whether or not I'm accepted into the nursing program, I will be enrolled in classes at the local university come January. I know that I will either be in the nursing program, or that I will be taking 2-3 as yet undetermined classes to pull up my GPA and make the next application to the nursing program a smoother process.

I know that my living situation needs to change, but I also know that my living situation is contingent upon my job and income situation, which is contingent upon finding out what exactly my school situation will be come January!

Clear as mud, right?

The short answer to "what's next?" is "I don't really know."

And so I continue to wait and watch and pray. Some days more patiently than others!

Wowsers did the formatting in this one throw me. Endless "you might also like" things mixed in had me keep thinking you were giving one or two line answers. Ha ha.

that's so bizarre! I hadn't clicked through yet to look at it... going to have to go look at the code and see if I can fix that problem. It was happening with double's at the end of some of these reverb posts, but I thought I'd solved that!
