Back to school, back to school, to show my dad I'm not a fool.

So maybe I'm going back to school... yet again.  Apparently I either don't think I'm useful enough as is or I just love debt.  Since I'm trying to make myself useful in a developing country I am considering becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner.  That's another two years full-time.  They make some programs that "fit with the full-time worker's schedule."  Which is really brochure talk for "You're going to hate your life for a really long time."  I'm also going to be volunteering at a place called Africa House soon.  It's an organization that helps refugees assimilate into our culture.  I'll teach the American essentials such as ordering fast food and driving while talking on a cell phone.
Also, I pitched a class idea to one of my church leaders.  Its a class teaching about third world issues (genocide, health care, trade, education, clean water, etc. ) and some things everyone can do to help.  I'd be excited to teach again, it's been a long time.  
Sarah and I also celebrated our 3 year anniversary.  We went to the beach for a night and had a great time, other than all the rain.  Cause that's why people head out to the beach, inclement weather.  It has been a fun first 3 years and I am looking forward to many more, up to the day that Sarah cashes that sweet sweet life insurance check and dries her eyes with the passing winds in her new convertible.
