Anyways,consider this an update and more.Jim and I are fine.Our relationship like every other is like a rollercoaster,sometimes it's so good you don't want to get off or for it to end and other times it's so scary you are scared of what's to come,we have our highs,lows,twists,and turns,but in the end everything is alright.Lately we have run into our issues where I have caused problems with how I react to certain things,but now that is changing and it sure feels good to change for the better.For instance,when I would get angry or frustrated the old way used to be to continue to get angry and frustrated,run in a cycle,but now I tell him I can't talk to him until I am calm and am able to put clear thoughts together to explain myself.Jim didn't like that at first but I think after I brought up my arguments as to why it is a good thing to he appreciated it abit more.
My parents are still an issue.Jim has been coming up with e-mails on the spot to write and send to my father while I am taking my time.I've decided to write my father an e-mail now so my voice can be heard without any interruptions then we can talk about it over the phone.He won't listen to me if I do it any other way.I even came up with an outline as to what to mention and say.Approaching the conflict like an adult,right?I know I am 18 and I should do as I please but I would so much rather go about leaving peacefully rather than angrily and in a hurtful manner.I'm tired of the drama and this is my way of escaping it.If my father allows me to go to Canada and it is too late,I will go and work there til I am able to join the nursing program,maybe Jim and I will marry then.Or if I don't pass my classes of this semester I will redo the classes there or here over the summer.
Anyways,here's the outline:
-I don't want yelling or an argument out of this
-I know why he doesn't want me going and I respect that
-use quote: "I bought a framed saying that says, 'There are two things you give your children: One is roots and the other is wings.' That wasn't too easy to do, but you know what? When you give them their wings, I think they come back and they want to be around you. And that's what makes me happy."
-mention the good things about Canada :
-no wating for nursing course*
-can get in shape playing on ball team and going to gym
-nursing course shorter*
-meet new people and Jims family
-more intimate class environment*
-find out how much nursing course is at grossmont
-compare the nursing courses
-find out if you get immediate work placement at hospital*
-look up stats on the nursing course/education in Canada*
I hope it shows up right,if not,oh well.So if any of you want to keep in contact with me my MSN name is musicgoddess2001 and tell me what your AIM name is then I will add you to my list.Take care and much love!~Cherry~
