I am now at the prime of my life and have been married for the past 25 years. Sickly at times, but wants to see the elixir vita, so that I will be able to see my grandchildren from my two boys.

I have retired last year working from a major airline in Chicago in their call center. I am not yet that old, nor am I on the retirement age. But I have seen the writings on the wall, and so I retired early. A week after I have retired, my department was transferred to India and to the Philippines.
I was getting bored at home, doing nothing. I was always at the library, because reading is my passion. Then one day, my eldest son came home and we talked and he told me that I need to go and find another job or any field of work that is not full time. Last summer, I found a job -- working for the mentally handicapped.
It was a very challenging work. We have to go on a very extensive three months training and I made the training. I am now certified to work for the mentally handicapped and my name is now in the list with the (OIG) Office of the Inspector General for the State of Illinois.
Then, I have decided to go further and study the first step in the field of Nursing. So, I took the (CNA) Certified Nursing Assistant class at College of Lake County, in Illinois. I have done the the classroom instructions and now doing my clinical in one of the accredited caring institution of the College.
And so Auntie Patti Koh, I am sharing you some pictures of me and some of my classmates in clinical. We all do the clinical from 5:00 PM till 10:00 PM three times a week. I love it and I find it very challenging. I hope I make it. I will be taking the government exams this 18April, 2009.
Wish me luck.
