To go or not to go?

Since my symbolic initiation (nurse pinning) into the nursing profession was postponed due to tornadoes and power outages, my school has decided to reschedule it 3 months later on Friday, Aug. 12.

To go?

I really miss my friends from school and even some of the instructors that have helped shape me into the awesome nurse that I know I will be. I know it would be a bittersweet reunion of sorts … one that I am not sure that I can handle. I bought the perfect dress and shoes when I thought that pinning would be in May. I really want to wear them :) I am not a super girly girl who always wears dresses, but this was one dress that I was excited about wearing.

But …

Even though I miss some of the people I went to school with, I also know that many of them have not found jobs. Only about 1/4 of my classmates got the hookup. Isn’t it kind of rubbing it in the faces of those who are desperately searching?

The other thing is that I hated nursing school. I was unhappy for the entire 2 years. I am worried that it will bring back the nightmares and ugly memories. I cried almost every day in nursing school, and I was not the most pleasant person to be around. Depressed = irritable. Is 3 months really enough time to heal?

What to do?

So, what is the verdict? Tell me what to do. I am not good at making decisions like this. Should I go???

    I wouldn’t go just because you’re already planning a trip to ZomBCon. Besides, you can always wear that dress up in Seattle with that incredibly awesome Mike guy.

    • I decided to go. My dad is even flying in from Albuquerque. I think everyone knows how disappointed I was when everything got cancelled the first time around. I am all about getting proper closure :) I do not think that wearing a summer dress in Seattle will be as exciting as you think it is. Ha!
