Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

ABC is not as easy as 123


Lying to everyone, not about love, but about school.

Ok here is the deal.

Remember when I quit my job, went to school full time, and then my part time job fell apart because I got tendonitis, and then I got a new job at OSU?

Got all that?

Well, my want to further my education hasn't lessened any, especially working for a university.

I am now faced with the hard decision of continuing with my previous degree and do it on the borrowed dime or start a new program (same general field, allied health) for next to nothing at OSU.

I know the choice should be crystal clear but it's not, it is so murky that it is taking forever to decide what to do.

When I steered myself towards allied health and found surgical technology everything fit, it was everything I was looking for.

Then I got this amazing opportunity to work for OSU and they have a ton of degrees to choose from but allied health is limited. I decided to start looking in to the radiation therapy program and although the money is better, it just felt like settling.

I talked to husband and family  and they all think I am crazy for wanting to be in surgery anyway, and the possibility of making double what a surgical tech does, they all said the radiation therapy degree was the way to go.

I can't blame them for saying that, not that my family and husband are money hungry, they are anything but, it is just a perk at the possibility to not have to worry about living pay check to pay check.

I may not be able to swing going in to the surgical tech program, money wise.

Going to OSU maybe the only way for me to go to school....

I just can't shake this feeling that surgical technology is where I need to be.
