I had a professionally licensed, bureaucratic job that I hated. I was living in West Texas; the oil boom priced me out of living so I jumped into the industry. Was paid extremely handsomely for lots of work and lots of blood and sweat (quite literally). Enjoyed the people and work but saw too much and almost lost my life at my job so I decided to quit and follow my long-time dream of working in the medical field. Overall, and everything considered, I'm glad I did it but would not want to do it again!
I'm currently back in school working on towards an RN and possibly an MSN. Loving it, the people are SO cool and the human body- fascinating!!!
I'm a bit of a science and language nerd and I love being outdoors. Like to cook for special people and enjoy art/music (both passive and active) I'm pretty down-to-earth and a little bit of a country boy stuck in a city dweller's body: I enjoy big city accommodations but really need to get back to nature to recharge and decompress pretty often.
I'm also a lot more subversive than you might think by looking at me... I've been told by close friends that I camouflage well, but I don't think that's a virtue or vice- just a survival mechanism, LOL!
