A Thought About School…Again


sonographI have been investigating schools for medical sonography. I don’t know that it’s what I want yet but it’s something that piqued my interest and I thought it was worth looking in to. There are two programs in particular that I have looked at, one in Winston Salem in North Carolina and one in Orlando close to my family.  The one in Winstom Salem will cost around $12k in total to graduate from two individual programs. The one in Orlando will cost around $29k to graduate from one program. The question is, if this is something I pursued would I prefer to have a 2 hour daily commute and stay put in my home in North Carolina? Or would I prefer to move close to my family, something I have wanted to do for a while, and get a much more expensive degree that allows me to only work in one sector of sonography. It’s something to think upon anyhow. If I decide that it’s what I want that is. My trouble is that I don’t know what I want. I don’t know anything about what I want. Where as if you ask most people they will say “I’ve always wanted to be a…” Me? I haven’t always wanted to be an anything. My mind changes just as quickly as my clothes and the idea of picking one thing…well…I just don’t think it’s for me. I’m a tinker in my blood, always have been since birth in fact as a child I would be asked if I was a “gypsy” (this wasn’t uncommon for England at the time when I was born) and the idea thrilled me. While my tinker roots have unknown origins – the closest you’d get in my family tree would be a great great great grandfather who was hanged for highway robbery – they are strong and given the opportunity to I dare say it would appeal in the way a ripe orange appeals to an orangutan.
