As the day grows closer for Michael to leave I’ve just been trying to keep my emotions in check. We are preparing to celebrate his birthday and Valentines day together though. I’m ready to get this deployment over with and have him back again. I’ve been trying to find a full time job to keep myself busy while he’s gone. Also to work on saving money for our future.
On a positive note, I think I’ve finally found out what I want to do as a career. As a child growing up, I always wanted to be a veterinarian. Once I got to my last year of high-school I realized I wouldn’t have the power to operate on animals. I wasn’t about to give up my dream of working with animals and saving them though. I’ve recently decided that I want to become an Animal Control Officer. I know in that line of work I would see a lot of horrible things. I have done a lot of research and I know what I’d be getting myself into. It will be hard but I have faith in myself.
