So, now, here I sit. Approaching my final semester at the local CC, working to transfer to a big 4 year school. I'm taking five classes, and was lucky enough to be able step down at work and take a part time position so that I can focus completely on school.
I could have never accomplished this at 18. I know I am working hard, but it is so much more fun and rewarding now. It doesn't feel like work so much. It's really too bad I didn't feel like this years ago, I could have already done all of this and would be more established. Guess what? Oh well. At least I'm doing it now. Kinda like Carl in "UP" it was time for me to start a new adventure.
Hurdles ahead, but somehow they seem manageable. 2 years and I will have finished my degree, 2 years and I will be starting my Master's. Seems like a long time when I look at it on paper, but, times flies.
So wish me luck, and lots of great inspiration!
On a side note, it's time for me to go to bed because even though everything in a 300 mile radius, well north and west radius will be closed tomorrow due to the fact that Virginia is in a State of Emergency , due to the hazardous weather conditions, SOMEONE decided that my store should be open. I think they should open it themselves, frankly.
p.s. for all you non-Virginia readers...yeah, you two, We never get weather like this, maybe every ten years or so, so the DOT just has a really hard time making the roads safe, we're not babies, and they aren't slackers. We aren't as cool as you in Buffalo, Salt Lake, Grand Rapids (all of them), and every other snowy city.
