Now that the holidays are over, that means no more sleeping until 10am, no more going to bed when I want to, and no more just lounging around. Wednesday, school starts for my daughter and it’s back to 6am days and 10PM nights. I savored EVERY day down to the second and the holiday break gave me life!
But, now it’s time to return to what I do, which also includes school. The start of the new semester is bittersweet for me. I’m ready to get it started and finished but at the same time, I can do without algorithms, c++, php, and all of the math. I must say, it is a bit easier to swallow if I’d just keep reminding myself that I’m a senior. Although I’m not a graduating senior, I’m pretty close to receiving my BA is Computer Science, Information Systems. I’m not sure how long I’ll be in school and to be honest, I’ve stopped focusing so much on that. I have enough going on–I don’t need the unnecessary stress of finishing school within 4-5 years.
As far as my goals for this year, I’ve narrowed them down to three:
And that basically sums up what I lacked for the most part of last year. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely didn’t have a bad year, but I spent a lot of the year worrying about things, not having any fun of my own, and partly losing myself in what I began to believe I should only do–be a mother, be a student, and be an employee.
Now, I plan to be among those who live, laugh, and love. Moreover, I plan to be that person who lives, laughs, and loves.
