“It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” commercial promoting Disney Land on television. Ugh….
As I was walking out onto my back porch a few days ago, I felt the chill in the air, and smelled the wood burning from some rich person’s back yard fireplace, and then I FELT the season….sorta. I sorta felt it, so much so, that I was tempted to grab a rake and rake the leaves in my back yard…I didn’t. Mostly because I think Dudley popped in them….but still, I did take down my Halloween decorations and put up my Thanksgiving decorations, so I am making progress. I think the trick to anything we do, is to make it our own. Out here in beautiful Northern California, the people outnumber the land by a margin of 10 to 1, and yet, I can still make a path….Like Nursing School, or just Nefariousness…You Gotta Want It….. nothing good in life is going to be given unto thee….
You could have heard a pin drop when I told my new friend I had a Publicist. She was like, “What?“….Yeah, but my beautiful Publicist hasn’t been able to do much for me out here, and so, it’s just nice to say I have one….you know, like telling people you have a Hermes that you may not use, it’s a class thing….and I giggle at that. Saturday night, there was an auction component with the gala…I won three months of official Kickboxing lessons, ( I am so going to beat some ASS), but as we were finishing up with dinner, the other items were going for thousands, I couldn’t believe it, so I leaned over and told my new friend, “Some day, when I become Nefarious, I too, will be able to bid $5,000 on a home cooked meal“…..Golf Club Membership went for $20,000….It’s like I told Merrill, having the option is nice yes? Here’s my point….
This amazing area is so full of opportunity, that it’s begging me to offend it. I belong to a Nursing Group and quite often the same question is asked over and over….”How do I succeed in Nursing School” to wit I always respond, “You have to be humble, remain teachable, and above all, You Gotta Want It“….Really, it’s the same way you succeed in LIFE. When you set out on a path, you will be tried, because your Faith must be tested, and you must be found worthy. I don’t believe life cares if you fail in your endeavors, life only cares that you tried….and the truth is, a failure isn’t a failure, but a success down the road. I’m finding out there are a lot of options for nurses here…..A LOT….you cannot jump on every opportunity, because quite a few are not good fits. I’m also finding out that if you’re of an offensive nature, people will LIKE you! It’s weird, it’s like being paid to call someone a bitch; which I can do….I’m just saying. Maybe they’ll let me write a real column out here, where I condemn their granola eating, cat walking lives, and then they’ll give me money to walk on a stage, and tell all the Little Sisters to wait to have sex, because most boys don’t know what they’re doing anyway, and really, who wants their first time to be in the back of a Toyota with a boy who just got hair on his chest? Ya know, I think I could sell it….I just need my Publicist to get off her ass, and work it for me. Okay, gotta go. Kiddo’s need up….You Gotta Want It, and you do. Hone your craft, work your plan, get people to know you, make mistakes, be offensive, DO YOU….and I swear to all things Coach, you will arrive…..now get out there, and sell yourself….but only in the states where it’s legal. Be Blessed.
