Faced with the choice between the most delicious dessert ever and the most cuddly animal ever, would you:<br>
a. Eat the dessert<br>
b. Cuddle the animal<br>
c. Figure out a way to eat the dessert one handed while snuggling the animal?

I went back to college 3 ½ years ago, after having 3 children. There, I made the Deans List, was on the Student Government, Campus Activity Board, and volunteered with seven committees. I was the Student Senate member of the year, even! That's accomplishing a lot considering I was a high school dropout.

Yes, definately. I recently applied to start college again. I'm going to be starting a new job soon, and I'm joining a gym. I went to a new church last week, and intend on going there more in the future.

When I was younger, I wanted to be a teacher. The elementary school I went to shut down the year I moved to middle school, so I snatched up all the old textbooks. I then carried the books around in an old typewriter suitcase. I took it to the little neighbor kids' homes, and would play school, where I actually taught them! We scheduled Science, English, Social Studies, even gym class! Their babysitter loved me, cuz I kept them busy!<br><br>
My favorite food would have to be CHOCOLATE. I'm completely addicted to chocolate. Mmmm.

Eat the dessert. Did I mention I'm addicted to chocolate? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I do like cats, though.

#1 was an oops. I was 16 when I got pregnant with her.<br>
#2 was planned spacing. We wanted them to be 2 ½ years apart, and that's what we got.<br>
#3 was an oops. #2 was just a week from turning 1 when I got pregnant with him.<br>
#4 was a BIG oops. I wasn't planning on having anymore. But she's a blessing.

Well, I'm hoping to be reaccepted into the Nursing program. I plan on becoming a Certified Nurse Midwife. If my illness (I have Lyme Disease) stands in the way, then I may just study Psychology or Human Services.

All good options. Also all lousy hours. (Automatic response from a lazy person, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)

Well, I was also thinking about becoming a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner. I'll leave that option open. Midwifery is my passion though. I did go through training to be a doula, but stopped short of certification due to lack of attended births.

Most definately! I've never attended any births except my own, and two of my births were unassisted.

Yes, I definately want to attend homebirths. That would be my preference, really. There's a large Amish population around here, and I'd love to be able to speak their language and be accepted into their community to attend births.
