My wife is a certified yoga instructor. She has been having a hell of a time finding a steady gig here in Ithaca and when she does find a gig the pay is pretty terrible. So, knowing this, she has decided to pursue something more stable, more helpful and more needed in the community here and at large. She has decided to pursue nursing school. She applied to the local community college’s nursing program.
This is such a perfect transitional path for her, because through the years, she has been going on a line of helping people and being an amazing caregiver. When her grandfather passed, she was one of the most intensely caring, calm and beautiful people he saw. This changed my perception of her for the positive, and she changed that day too. She starts school in the fall and she is terrified of going back to school with a bunch of kids.
Living in a college town at 30 is strange already for me, these are seriously BABIES! But I think she will have the advantage of being able to concentrate for long periods of time, and the pressure of succeeding will keep her in line.
I think she would be a fantastic nurse. I am so happy for her. All we have to do now is make sure she is charged instate tuition and we are golden.

  1. Awesome!

    I wish her the best. We will now both be coffee guys with a nurse as a wife!

  2. ha, so strange but true. Thanks man! I will let her know. See you in Atlanta?

  3. Sure it might be weird to be going “back” to school with younger folk, but she brings a lot more life experience and focus with her which I’m sure will give her a nice edge. Good luck!
