Hello and welcome.

Based on your success in initiating discussion so far Planner Groupie, you should stick with being a poster rather than a lurker. We enjoy the insights of non-planners on planning issues - it often opens our eyes.

Yes I am 25 and I wish I looked like her!

i'm 26, a sagittarius, and enjoy sipping white wine while watching the night sky on the beach

...and enjoy getting liquor when passing through NH...(go ahead and tear that apart...i'm asking for it...)

I'll send u a bottle of white wine. That can be your prize. Or you can just pass through NH and I can hand it to you ;).

Thank you all for the warm welcome. You might find me posting my small input here and there, but like I said, I have no idea about planning and the such. Even in the last couple of days, I learned things that I never imagined had anything to do with planning.

Give you a little more insight into me. Yes, I am 25. I work for a large banking company here in the consumer lending department. I love my job but I want more out of life so once my sticky divorce is final and I get some semblance of a life back, I am going to school. My goal is to become a nurse. I'm always interested in learning new things and meeting new people.

Again, thank you all for you're welcomes and I can't wait to get to know you all!

Hey you got to love what you do or else it will slowly kill you;)

or not so slowly....

I am a fan of the big red barns too. ;)

Too bad about the weather last weekend and the groups lack of party planning skills.

Welcome, I guess I have to add you to the care package list when I'm in New England.

Must resist urge to make inappropriate comment regarding what NHplanner might be teaching you about "planning" ;)

interesting, i've always told myself that if i do make a career change, it would be into something like that...i actually looked into a distance learning program for nursing. although i'd probably just become a paramedic and get paid to ride on big red trucks instead of doing it for free like now...i love being a vol. firefighter/emt! has very little value in my career though unless i start planning firehouse locations.

or maybe i'll just be a trial lawyer...

I've wanted to get into the field for some time now but couldn't afford it. I could have started out as a CNA, but I don't do well with really old people. I have a specific direction in nursing I want to go. It's actually completely opposite working with the elderly. It's good to have options. :)

Ok, OK, Calm down... I was just asking questions, not asking her for a relationship. (That would take a little while longer)

Actually labor and delivery. I don't think I could handle seeing sick babies. It would break my heart. My goal to do labor and delivery really hit me when I saw my nephew being born. I'll get there some day!

Mike - don't worry about him. You ask any questions you want as long as they won't get you in trouble for asking them ;)

that's great! i'm much better at handling tragedy than being responsible for so much joy. i'll work a cardiac arrest any day...i'll be $hitting bricks the day a woman goes into active labor while i'm working the back of the ambulance...

All you have to do is catch it. Not much to it. But I understand what you're getting at. I'd feel too much responsible if someone died on me. I don't think I could handle it.

So... do you down hill ski? What made you decide to be a planner groupie?

Strange living in NH and I don't ski. I tried quite a few years ago and hated it. Just not my thing. I'm more of a sports watcher. Love hockey and football!! Go Pats!

NHPlanner had sent me the link to the never ending joke thread, so being the nosey person that I am, I started to read the other threads. He sort of convinced me to sign up and we decided to play a little mystery person which I thoroughly enjoyed btw. Groupie just seemed to fit the persona I was going for.

Interesting plan of study there PG. My wife is a doula, has been for three years now. She also contemplated going the mid-wife route, but the lack of cooperation and insurance costs were too much for her (us) to bear, so she went o the assistant route. She's done 20+ births now, and is on deck for three more with in the next few months. She has a back ground in Occupational Threapy, so the training for her was really pretty easy(she already has great knowledge of muscle structure/action and medial necessities). Best of luck in you course change, it'll be worth it!

If you want, I could teach you. Even so that you love it and it would be your thing…

As for the spectator sports, I am a die hard Red Wings Fan, and a Packer fan. I much rather be playing sports than watching them.

I am so not a good student. I would irritate you to no end while I whine about how cold I am and how much skiing sucks. Probably why I prefer to be in the comforts of my own home watching it on tv or even better yet, in the stands screaming like a fool!

Thank you very much Martini. I am a little nervous to be starting over in a career but I figure if I survive starting live over after a divorce, I can handle a career change!
