What do you want in life?

Going back to school is good but I tell ya, when you have so much other things in your life, it's like when will I be able to catch up? My cousin called me this morning from MS just to see how I was doing and I said I was doing fine, then he went on to ask me if I had plans this weekend. I said that I would be doing homework, as usual. My cousin said that everytime he calls me to check up on me, I'm always doing homework and on the weekend at that. Although that is a true statement, I have homework all the darn time and not really any time to just chill and do nothing.

The homework is basically a lot of reading that I have to go and re-read because sometimes I don't understand what I read the first time. Not only that, I'm writing papers to make sure they are turned in on time for both classes. My cousin then said to me that he was just too old to go back to school and I interrupted him and told him that he was never too old. College wasn't my thing when I graduated high school and as I got older, I realized just how important that piece of paper would mean. The majority of my high school classmates had gone off to college but I couldn't follow in their footsteps, I had to do my thing, in my own time.

My cousin then asked how much longer I had until I finished up school and I mentioned about 2 more years and he said, "whew, that's a long time", but then I thought about it. Two years isn't really that long to have something for a lifetime. I told my cousin that nothing from nothing leaves nothing.  Yes, going back to school is hard, especially working full-time and with a family; but I am determined to get it because I want it just that bad. The tunnel seems dark right now but I know I'm more closer to the light. It doesn't matter if it takes me 4 more years to finish, because our Pastor once told us, "It's not how you start, but how you finish." I'm working toward the finish line.

Lovingly yours,


  1. Keep pressing toward the mark, Queen Bee. Nobody can see the finish line except you and that's because it's YOUR vision.

  2. Im really proud of you. You have a family and a household to hold down and you're doing the damn thing!

    You're setting a great example for your family too!
