I know I am MIA for months at a time but as the previous post explains- it's for my sanity. So many people have turned to their blogs as a way to make money, which is fine, but it shouldn't be the sole purpose.

I have 10 days left of this semester (yay!!) I stopped babysitting so I would have more time for school (aka watching tv on my days off.) I work about 4 hours a week in the women's center at the local hospital. I have always worked l&d, nicu, peds, picu, and postpartum so why let infertility stop that! I recently had an amazing job offer to work in the IV pharmacy at my old hospital but the hours wouldn't have worked with next semester. I also was asked to be a Chemistry 2 tutor for two lab classes at my university, so I will be doing that instead.

Classes are going great. I'm really kicking ass in Chemistry and I love the SHIT out of it. My favorite professor has been slipping me random job info about careers with a doctorate in Chemistry instead of a pharmacy doctorate. I would love it but I don't know how realistic that is.

Infertility still lurks in the back of my mind but I'm feeling better than I have in a long time. People still get on my nerves when they bitch about their pregnancy (even if they feel that they are due that right.) Or when I see a 15 year old with twins. It probably helps that I go to school with younger kids that are still scared of getting pregnant. And there will hardly be any parents (at least moms) in my doctorate program because no mom in their right mind would sign on for that.

Well that's all I have for now-- see you in a month or two.

If you miss me, you can always follow me on twitter!

You're SO amazing! I can't believe you're doing so much! I'm so glad you're doing things for you and you're enjoying it! I'm definitely looking you up when I need help with my homework ;o)

Sounds like you are doing great! Science classes are tough, but it seems like you are handling all of it really well.

All the best!

Stopping by from ICLW. I hope that your job and school bring you some satisfaction and reprieve from your journey.

Any closer to deciding between a pharmacy or chemistry doctorate?
