Today, I hit a major life accomplishment in my book.
I have been vocal in the past about going to College as an Adult and the exhausting journey it has been. I promised myself when I first left college to start a family that I would finish my degree by the time I was 30 and I was determined to finish that goal. After numerous changes in my majors, taking semesters off here and there or only taking one class, I decided to buckle down and go back to school full-time so I could finish my goal. It hasn’t been an easy one but I wouldn’t change that. In fact, it has taught me amazing time management skills and how to push myself when I needed it most. Sure, sometimes I make a pot of coffee at 9PM so I can stay up long enough to finish all my homework and I probably don’t sleep nearly as much as I should, but taking this journey to get where I am today taught me a lot about myself. I finally found a major I truly knew I wanted my degree in, I finally was able to realize my full potential, and I finally believed in myself.
