Purple Dress, Cardigan, Straw Hat, Pearls: Thrifted.
Well, guess what!? I didn't have to go to school today. No sillies, I did not play hookie. I actually had an excused absence, hehe. At my school, when you get to be a junior you recieve a day to do a job shadow of any job you choose. I called a bunch of fashion related places to see if I could get a fashion merchandising job shadow, but sadly my town is so small and inflexible that all of the places denied me.
So I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to look into a job I've always been sort of interested in: ultrasound technician! It was so intriguing to do this job shadow today... I got to see the ultrasound of two twin boys, be with two couples as they found out the sexes of their babies (both were girls!), and unfortunately I did get to see tragedy, as well. One young couple came in for an ultrasound only to find out that they were never actually pregnant and that the baby never formed. It was very sad and not something I'm sure I could ever do.
All in all the job shadow was a success, but I'm pretty sure I won't be an ultrasound technician. I still have a full year to decide what I want to study in college, so I can do plenty more looking around! It does scare me though the thought of deciding what I want to do for the rest of my life at only 17...
Hope you all are doing just wonderful!
With much love, Lauren.
P.S. I'm missing school tomorrow, as well! It's for a college visit that I'll make sure to tell you guys all about :)
