Change is the only thing that is constant, and I’m constantly changing for the better. I must say that it is quite relaxing to be able to find an equilibrium within all that surrounds me. My mommy, school, and work schedule were able to align themselves in the order I needed them to and as a result, I’m able to get a lot of things done. Particularly, relaxing has become a much more feasible task than before and I don’t feel as though I’m running on fumes anymore. I actually feel like my head is attached to my neck. I’m resigning and allowing the Vice President to govern all those that Run-Around-Like-A-Chicken-with-Its-Head-Cut-Off.

This semester I’m taking 15 hours. Although none are computer courses, they are still courses that I need to obtain my Bachelor’s degree. I’m very confident that I won’t have to withdraw from any courses. They are relatively easy and with my regular attendance, everything seems to be going well. I’m excited about school again. I feel like I felt when I first started. I’m determined and I’m focused. I’m organized and I’m staying on top of things. I will make this an awesome semester.

Graduation is so close and I am very proud of myself for making it this far. I have 35 hours remaining, which is about 2 semesters. Even if it ends up being longer, I will definitely graduate. I’ve learned not to compare my life to others because I can only live mine. I can’t ever express how being a parent, being an undergrad, and being a full-time employee takes hard work, determination, and faith. I am definitely aware that my struggle is not in vain. I’ve drifted into the thought of me walking across the stage to receive my Bachelor’s degree and I always smile and/or shed a few tears. It was always apparent that I would make it this far; it’s also apparent that stopping is not an option. Even if it were, I’d choose otherwise.

    Glad you feel more balanced, i cant wait til im back in a schedule and have that moment to relax. Good luck with your classes. I find that once i stopped worrying about where everyone else was at and just worried about where i was and wanted to be for myself, it fell into place a lot faster. so its always better to just focus on yourself and do things at your own pace.

    Happy to hear things are going great. You sound very positive, strong and determined. Which is great! I also try to stop comparing my life to others. It’ll only get us off track and cause us to start over. You have a bright future ahead of you :) I can tell!
