Well I finally did it. I spent a nice chunk of money on a new line of work. Not to replace the store (well at least not yet...LOL) but to replace the two part time jobs I work besides the store.
I registered for the online course to study for my Ohio Insurance License test. It's a requirement to sit for the test. From what I hear the test is compared to the Ohio Bar exam. I'm so freaking scared and nervous, I do badly at tests. It will require me to take a good portion of a day off to sit for a proctored exam to prove I can pass the online course, that's in Toledo. Then I have to register for the state test that will be taken in Columbus. I have no idea how I'm going to get the time to do it, but it's summer and I can call in a few favors.
It has been a long time since I've had to study for anything, it's so frightening. I'm excited at the possibilities, but nervous I'll screw this all up and I won't be smart enough to do this. I hate the idea of failure, but I love putting myself into new situations and new lines of work. My motivation is going to be getting out of the fast food industry for good and to regain my nights and weekends again.
I hope this works, this could change my life.
