I might beat compassionategirl with how long this post is
JK you know I <3 ya.
Ive read that both veggiechik and kollision are both certified trainers! that is awesome.
how hard is it to find employment? I really want to go get certified but I am not sure if I want to drop $5400 to do so, if Im not gonna be able to find employment. Im broke and in debt already as it is.
here is where i was thinking of attending:
Ive checked it out and it seems like a good deal. some classroom learning and hands on.
does anyone know if a gym (if I work there at front desk, sales, etc) will pay me to go get certified? cause that be a lot neater.
I really want to move to portland, oregon more than anything. but i guess I need a "career" in order to find employment.
my original goal (since I was a teen) was to go to the rookie academy in new zealand before I turned 23 (im 22 in november).
become a universally certified snowboard instructor (i taught a few yrs here in PA, and have been doing snowsports since the age of 2). but most of everyone i know was down on me doing this, saying its not a real career. so i went to community college. it sucked. so i went to real uni. and that sucked too. switched majors a few times. then dropped out cause school is not for me at all. I am tired of schools. even the personal training institute sounds good in theory, but i am tired of learning from textbooks and all that. I hated anatomy and physiology in college, and I fails it. even when i tried hard to pass it. i just cant memorize a ton of stuff.
and here I am with zero dollars, owe money for college loans, and have no idea what i want to do with my life. I just want to get out and do things. Im tired of being stuck at home working shit jobs to invest what lil money i earn back into making my car functional. its one viscious cycle. Id like to be living in portland, snowboarding.working at mt hood/timberline, getting around using public transportation and cycling, bodybuilding like crazy, travelling a lot, rocking out, and continuing to help push veganism into the mainstream. I dont care about money, fame, and fortune. just helping ppl and animals, and enjoying life while I can. in the snowboard "offseason" id like to go instruct in a different country every yr (since i will be certified to instruct snowboarding anywhere in the world), and then come back on during the regular season.
anyway i know i am rambling and more thoughts will come to me and i will be sure to post them later. but does anyone have any "2 cents" on my situation. thanks.
