Why I'm looking forward to RT School

Freadom over at Respiratory Therapy Cave recently wrote A list of what I like about being an RT, which got me to thinking about why I am looking forward starting RT School.

10 Reasons I'm looking forward to RT School:

  1. I can sleep in every day. I won't have to get up at 4:30AM on work days anymore.

  2. I don't have to pick up, drop off and pay for dry cleaning any more. No more wearing dress pants, for me.

  3. I can be unemployed. It's OK to be unemployed when you're a full time student.

  4. I don't have to shine my shoes on a regular basis.

  5. I get to buy a stethoscope.

  6. I can spend a few years learning some interesting things.

  7. I can stop worrying about looking for another IT job.

  8. I can start using the, "I can't because I have to study" excuse.

  9. I can get to school in less than 10 minutes. It now takes me hours to get to work. I'm not kidding, or exagerating, it takes me over 2 hours to get to work.

  10. When I'm finished, I'll be a Respiratory Therapist.


  1. Soon enough it will....flash before your eyes...and the next thing you know you'll be a RRT.

  2. I agree with everything on your list! I can't wait, either! Except for the whole taking 2 hrs to get to work and getting up at 4:30 AM...oh, and dry cleaning...and shining

    I like the "I have to study" excuse, though. I use that a lot...

    Can't wait!!! We start on the same day...exciting!

  3. diana lyn:
    I've got a couple things to do before the 2nd that I'm looking forward to. On the 20th, I have "mature student" preorientation session. On the 25th, I have an orientation day. Do you have an orientation or anything that you have to go to?

    I forgot to mention not having to iron clothes at 5 in the morning. Having to do that really pisses me off and quit often involves me burning myself.

  4. Lists and lots of them. That's the foundation of all great civilizations.
