Maybe it's school time

Thursday, July 04, 2019

I've been looking for all types of jobs in the past two years. Some jobs I get voted out of due to transportation issues but most of the time it's because I'm 275 lbs over weight. Sometimes I think that the universe is telling me that the reason I'm not getting a job is because it's time for me to volunteer and finish my Associate degree in EMS. The problem is that I'm hitting walls in the form of scholarships. So right now I'm working on both. I'm trying to find a job that will look past my size and finding ways to pay for school. I was even thinking of opening a gofunde page. I just dont know if people will donate.

    Commit yourself to doing this and you will have that degree. In getting jobs, the weight issue might interfere but emoticon Take it one step at a time … talk to the college counselor and see what scholarships or grants might be available. It will be worth the effort.

    I went back to school last fall and loved it. Now working on a master life coach certificate. You should definitely go get your EMS
