Well, it's been a pretty massive week in the context of what I will be doing for the remainder of the year. When I initially signed up, I almost went 'Rifleman' but was advised to go ECN500 because I was unsure and this would allow me to pick my job during training. I chose my job, Dental Assistant, and was happy with my decision and had pretty much planned the rest of my year. I thought this was all good. Then, a few days after I don't all my paperwork, I was told my transfer to the job was not allowed, an dI had to choose between five jobs.
While being here, I have thought a lot about what I believe, what I want to do and what I won't do. Guess what - two of these five jobs are jobs I will not do. The other three are jobs I would do, but have no interest in, and feel I could achieve more from this year if I was home.
So what does this all mean? It means I'll be home a lot earlier than I intended to be. For the last few days, I've been in a weird state. I didn't want to stay and I still don't want to leave. I've thought it all through and have put in all the paperwork for my ROR/delistment. I'm disappointed I won't be completing the year as I said and intended, but I'm also very excited about what the rest of the year now holds. Still feeling a bit weird and annoyed about it all, but confident I've made the right decision.
