I got a new speech job. In Waco. I already got the apartment, met my new pts and the rest of the staff I'll be working with. And did I mention....I'm moving out there on my own? And the position is full time?!
I'm so excited and so happy! God has truly blessed me and I can't thank all the opportunities I've been given that have built me up to take on this new position. I'll be treating pts in there homes (home health instead of clinic). But I'll be seeing more kiddos then my other job. At Sante, it was one pt every hour, now I'll be seeing different kiddos every half-hour, so I'm making more an hour than I did before.
It helps that the town is super small. I barely waste any gas at all. And my apartment is gorgeous! And right by the lake. I'm going to get a bike and bike down their each day. :3
I'm super, super happy! And blessed! But it kinda makes me sad that a lot of my friends were very judgmental of my home situation. My mom and I do not always get along, but it isn't that easy to just get out when you have very little financial options. And some even pressured me saying, "Nicole, you're 25, you need to move out." And this came from someone who was much older than I was who didn't move out of their family's home until way older than I was. So I don't like the hypocrisy of it....or anyone putting their own judgments and opinions on my situation. It's not like I wanted to stay with my family a whole year after I graduated college, but getting licensed takes time and getting internships and entry-level experience takes time. It really hurt my feelings and I had some self-esteem issues because of it.
My parents didn't care if I stayed with them until I could transition so why should they care? I really don't know...but I won't have to worry about them because I am moving! Lol I am getting the keys next Friday and I am so excited! Lol :)
No one can dampen my happiness! No one! All negative people, please stay away, I have no time for you! Lol
Other than that, the process of getting everything taken care of has been really stressful. I am having some allergic reactions/breakouts again. And I hope my doctor and I can figure out why it's happening. It happened like 2-3 years ago and I'm a little scared that It'll keep escalating.
