I’ve taken a very long break from my blog. I’ll blame it on school and life just being hectic. I feel compelled to revisit it due to recent activity and epiphanies I’ve had.
I’ve finished school, waiting for my degree to come in the mail. I don’t feel like participating in another graduation ceremony. I highly doubt that I’ll even pursue a career in Health Promotion. I completed an internship that I enjoyed. I received rave reviews from my manager and others I worked with. And then my manager gave me an odd, biased review. It took me by surprise, so I countered a few points and then I just let her finish so I could go home and pack for my pending vacation. I was pretty pissed. I couldn’t even talk about the results for weeks.
In addition, I’m not willing to start at an entry-level position and potentially take a pay cut. I’d take a pay cut if it was a matter of no job versus a job, but I have a job that I’m enjoying. I’m sure some would suggest that pursuing this degree was a waste of time and money. It wasn’t. It’s something that I’m interested in and I’ll still use it some capacity, even if in a volunteer capacity. Did I mention that my company has a tuition reimbursement program? Awesome perk!
