You remind me of myself. I don't like high stress jobs and I soon get bored with repetitious jobs.
So perhaps you need something challenging to occupy your bored brain whether that be a special project at work or finding a new hobby during time off.
Ah. You're referring to credentialism, a.k.a. credential inflation, b.k.a. degree inflation.
You can bet on 10 hours of study time per week to get decent grades in science and nursing classes
Oh yeah my last day at work is this Friday. I fly to Guatemala a week later
I did lots of research. Everything you need to know about teaching ESL is online. There are ESL jobs out there.
My immediate goal is to teach in Mexico so I'm taking the CELTA there. This is a highly rated ESL 4 weeks long teaching course.
But first I'm going to Guatemala for 7 weeks to learn Spanish.
Ultimately I want to travel and teach ESL through Latin America.
I'll make it work one way or another.
Having said that.......
Enjoy your travels. I'm also about to embark on a new adventure. I'm leaving everything behind to go teach English overseas and travel.
Can you afford to study in Canada? Have you looked at the tuition costs?
Don't let your inner critic control your life. Banish those negative thoughts.
You can choose to participate or not.
I'll tell you what is demoralizing. I haven't had a raise in two years. I'm currently training my replacement who is earning the same wage as me. She knows nothing about doing my job yet she's getting paid exactly the same as me. Wow...just wow.
And then my company wonders why they can't keep employees and why moral is so low.
And yes I did tell my manager exactly what I think.
How do you plan to get a US work permit/visa and SSN?
Yup, I'd be out of there in fear of being thrown under the bus and the one to blame for everything.
I uninstalled the FB app altogether. FB is easily accessed via its mobile site using Chrome. FB is just too nosy into the contacts on my phone and everything else.
Suggest you start by reading the many threads here on nursing in Alberta.
