I was waaaay too immature to be going away to college, but I did anyway. When I dropped out, I had a 1.67 GPA.
I decided I wanted to be a nurse after being a CNA for a while, and I graduated LPN with honors.
Then I went to RN school, where due to working full time, going to school full time, and having a lot of personal issues (breaking up an engagement and then dating a real loser), I was soooo overwhelmed and I failed my 3rd semester by 2 points.
But then I redid the semester, finished nursing school, and passed the Nclex on the first try.
I also didn't have a serious bf until I was 19. I just turned 30 and I'm single. Ah well.
