It has been a while since I have posted anything here. Many things have changed in my life in that period. I graduated from Normandale Community College and now have my first degree. My brakes went out on my car and I had to struggle to get the money together to fix it. I am thankful for my brother in law and his friend for helping me with the repairs. I have started a new job this week as a educational paraprofessional substitute. I am working to pay off a student loan before I can go for my B.A. in Teaching Social Studies. So, I am currently not in school for the time being. I hope to have that all paid off before June, that way I can get back to work on my degree.
The next few months are going to be tight but I believe I will be able to make it through. If I do not make my deadline of June I will head back to school by next spring. It is good to have goals but they should not I believe, so rigid to the point that if you do not make it with in a time frame it kills your motivation. This is what does happen to me a lot. I sometimes push myself, to the point where I start to question my own worth and get down on myself. Then I let everything go and just give up. I have to make sure I have a secondary plan of action, because shit happens.
Things happen in our lives that change us for better or worse. The thing is when we are in a down spin we have to gain our composer and level ourselves off and change direction accordingly. There is not just one way to get where you want to go in life there are many. Some are short and sweet, and others may take a bit longer but you will still get there in the end.
