I am currently pursuing my Bachelor's in Nursing. I love school and learning. I love my family and my church home. Most of all I love Jesus.
I can understand how this might exhaust the mind, but I cannot imagine how it could narrow it. How can it be a large career to tell other people's children about arithmetic, and a small career to tell one's own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No; a woman's function is laborious because it is gigantic, not because it is minute. I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness.
The Bible tops this very long list. It is easier, and shorter to list authors so, my favorite authors are C.S.Lewis, J.R.R.Tolkein, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle, Jane Austen, and Louis L'Amour.
I will listen to anything except screaming rock music and weepy love songs. Plus, I like the Bennett Family Singers!(especially the little, blond backup singer)
I am so sorry you hate your job. That is no fun. I'll be praying for you. Hopefully you can find another one that you like better. Too bad you don't live in MO. I just quite mine and they are looking for someone else to take my place. Oh well. Have a nice day!
