    An activist working to change negative opinions about the mentally ill and lobbying for better care of them.

    I dream of being able to teach children, teens, and adults for that matter, the wrongness of negative opinions toward the mentally challenged.

    I dream of being able to help Hurricane Katrina survivors the rest of the country has forgotten about.

    When I first was out of high school and starting college and pre-nursing, I had high-fluting dreams about the amazing things I wanted to accomplish with my life. I still dream of doing something to make a difference...

    1. Bookstore owner
    2. permanently working for the Peace Corps, going from one country to the next. Going wherever my heart desires.
    3. F-16 pilot stationed on a carrier. This is actually my first dream. Been my dream since I was 4 years old. Nothing, nothing better than going from 0-350mph in 2 seconds.
    4. Traveler with my own show on the Travel Channel a la Samantha Brown
    5. If not for the pilot I guess I could settle for IRL driver.

    Quote from rclimbr
    I am not a nurse, but is nursing so much of a drain that ya'll can't at least do some of this stuff in your spare time?
    Get a part time job in a bakerey or a craft store
    just 15-20 hours a week, who cares how much it pays do it for fun or a stress break from your "real" job
    Uh, yeah it is. And add 20 hours to 40 and you get 60 - you're not going to get benefits working pt. Plus, some have husbands and kids so that's about 500 hours.

    Somehow I don't think being an F-16 pilot on an aircraft carrier coincides with being an aide. Don't think my employer would like it if I had to leave suddenly citing "but I've got to go shoot down some bad guys."
