So we've been planning. I love to plan as many of you may know, thing I hate about planning is that planning usually never goes the way you anticipate. But this time Chris and I are taking charge and going to make this plan work. Chris has a interview tomorrow making up to 13-15 dollars an hour, it isnt something he is entirely happy about doing but he realizes we need the money to pay off some debt and saving up the rest to get out of this town, out of his dads house, and on our own.

I know in the past I have talked about doing some crazy things like hair... Lately I have started to hate hair. So the past few weeks I sat myself set down and think of something that excites me, that interests me and makes me want to know more. Something that if I did I would still be interested in, later in life. So I sat and wondered, pondered. I went through childhood experiences that stick out to me. I always remember my grandma and mom taking things from the house and using them to heal me. I love those moments, we shared bonds and moments over those things. I find my self doing it to this day. So I looked at myself in the mirror and from that moment on I knew what I really wanted to do, needed to do. So I went to the computer and started looking for schools that taught this, and I found one up in Seattle. Bastyr College. Its a college that specializes in natural remedies. I want to go for herbal studies, and maybe farther from there. This is something I truly do feel passionate about and from reading the course and other things about the school I fell in love. Like the love I feel for someone love.

So here is our plan. We plan to live in Kansas until about next September, paying off some debt saving up money and planting a garden. Get us a van we arent sure if we are going to live in it when we get there but to have one just in case is good... I think to establish residency up there we are going to have to rent an apartment for at least a year or so. Then we can leave it and just go to school living in the van. We are not to sure but I feel we are going to have to live in Seattle a little bit before we can go to school. So get jobs up there and start living a new life. Chris is planning on still going for a pastry chef. He is very good. But that is our plan then after school we plan to get jobs with our professions and I plan to go for photography and stuff.

    Bastyr is great if you want a traditional college approach to herbalism, there are other amazing teachers out there who are a bit more alternative in how they teach. HIGHLY suggest checking out the North AMerican Institute for medical Herbalism in Boulder, CO, run by paul bergner. HE's an amazing mentor, and his program kicks ass! * I know, I went through it*
