Well, it is now 1932 and since Ronnie Holfersted dumped me just before the school dance I am hoping that this year will bring better things than 1931. Mother still has the bad back and father is still battling with the bottle so what am I supposed to do?
Well, I am going to nursing school! Mrs. Haversack at the high school says that my grades are good enough to get me into the school at Lawrence and I am getting out of this one horse town and going to see the world.
I will get to make my own money and wear a spiffy uniform! And you know what they say about nurses, they get to meet lots of boys! Some might even be doctors! Be still my beating heart! I am going to be Nurse Ames. Look out world, here I come!
