I have one daughter, Jessica, who was born 4/12/88 and is now 25. She will be graduating from St. John More…Fischer College 12/13 with a degree in H.R. She is still living at home with us- saves on rent! She has a wonderful boyfriend who treats her like gold, as all boyfriends/spouses should.
Well, I graduated from Isabel Graham School of Practical Nursing in 6/82 and began working at RGH 10/4/82.I was married to Troy Rockcastle 9/11/82 (a date that would later go down in history)and had my daughter, Jessica in April, 1988. Troy and I divorced in early 1990. I feel like my life actually started when I turned 30 because that's when I became happier and more confident with myself. My mother and brother-in-law, Jim Morrow (also IHS Class of 80) opened a restaurant in Dec, 1989, called Bolger's (mom's maiden name), where I worked as hostess. It was a wonderful opportunity for all of us. I have not remarried as yet, but Dave and I plan to in the future. Life has taught me to stay away from words like "never" and "always". I DO use both, however, because I believe you must try to live life to the fullest everyday and if you don't take chances, you'll miss the dance altogether. My daughter makes sure I frequently remember that despite all the years I spent in school and in life, I actually "know nothing" about much at all. I live in a home in West Irondequoit that I bought in Dec, 1984, and my parents still live on VanVoorhis Ave, where I grew up. I am on Facebook, where I have "Notes" written about myself, but unfortunately do not have the time to keep current anymore. I became very interested in Pharmacy about 4 years ago but didn't think I could afford to cut my work hours to part-time to go back to school as a full-time student. However, my growing desire to become a pharmacist and "student loans" have made it possible to do so. I just completed my first year of "pre-pharmacy" and will be starting my second year this fall. If I do well on my PCAT's, I hope to be accepted at Fischer in Fall, 2014 for 4 more years and my doctrite. Wish me luck. "It's never too late to become what you might have been."
