    First Day of School

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by wordwizard, Nov 26, 2007.

    Wish me luck!
    Today I start school. I have not been in school for 5 years. I wouldn't say I am nervous, but I am certainly curious to see what I will be learning.

    I am taking a resident care attendant program, so I know it will be different than regular school. I feel like I will do well.
    A little wish of luck thrown my way can't hurt though :D ;)

    cheers

    I would possibly say something to do with working with older people or people with disabilities. But I'm not too sure myself.


    GOOD LUCK ANYWAYS! Have a great day and good on ya for doing this!

    Your right Doz. It is caring for the elderly and/or the handicapped. Todays schooling went well. Was actually a bit of fun. I have homework though :(
    It started snowing while I was in class, and I had to drive home in trecherous conditions. Was not very much fun. Now I am going to be home alone alll night because my partner will be snow plowing. Hopefully it will stop snowing for him so he can come home and sleep :)

    Oh cool, my mum used to work in a care home for the elderly. Is it the same sort of thing?

    I volunteered there for a while till the laws all changed and I was too young to help there any more.

    I hope that all is going well for you wordwizard and your course does sound like something that will lead you into a very fulfillung career if that is what you are going to be doing later on. A friend of mine works with the elderly and handicapped people. He has told me a lot about it without going into to detail and all the personal things and it really does sound like a very fulfilling and wonderful career to get into.

    Best of luck to you :)
