So, this evening I find myself between kung fu movies, and in the land of "shoulds." I should be studying for a math test I am taking tomorrow. I had mentioned before that I am attempting to go back to school for nursing, as a product of losing my job (ok, I left, but it was only because he was not giving me a very good offer).

And it will end up being about $60,000 less than (at least) my illustrious herbal medicine degree.

But have always thought about it. And now life has brought me back to the possibility of being one of those angels I met in the NICU.
