Being a student Mommy is hard!!!

Going to school full-time and being a mom, geez I have had harder things in my life but this is just too much at times.

I got married at 22, had a baby at 23 got divorced at 25 and now I am going to school at Misericordia University in Dallas PA. I am in a special program that allows single mothers to go to school full-time and have their children on campus with them, it's a blessing that I will never regret.

I have to admit though this is my first semester and things haven't always been so easy. In the beginning everything was fine, until I started waking up late, missing deadlines. I had to go to an advisor to help me get my papers organized and start putting my son to be at 7pm because he hates mornings. I am a morning person but I drain myself so much that it's hard sometimes.

I am just getting use to this school thing but I know that I will master it next semester and it'll be smooth selling from there on out.

My major is healthcare management and I would love to work for the WHO World Health Organization when I graduate. I have been stalking their website and asking a gazillion questions, I guess it's never too early to be prepared.


Before I came here I hated everything about my life and now I am starting to love me again.

My physical appearance has alwasy plagued me throughout my life, I believe the reason I didn't go to school for a long time (I'm 26) and it was because I could not stand the ridicule from my fellow students. Now I am more confident and I know what is important.

Living in a house with 3 other women and their children does not help the situation, my son is the only little boy in the house and it's hard because boys are not as clingy to their mothers as girls are so I give him more freedom than they do their children. My son is very open and extremely loving, I call him my little Barack.

I hope to blog more about my life and my adventures, I feel that this is a great way to get out some of my frustrations and encourage others to follow their dreams as well.

I do have a goal list:

My goals are:

Experience life more by myself and with my son and to be a good mother because no one is great
Of course Graduate with Healthcare Management Degree with Honors
Study Abroad in Australia
Finish writing my Book
Get a boyfriend
Have Orthognathic surgery and get my braces off (which seems like forever)
Payoff my car or student loans (either or)
Travel to 5 different places within the US
Finalize my divorce (We are legally seperated)
Learn to Swim
Wear a bathing suit ( I am deathly afraid)
Be called beautiful by a stranger ( I know this is shallow but it means alot knowing where I came from)
Learn Spanish and Danish
Get Healthy (I am aiming for a more healthier diet, I only buy organic foods now)


This is all I have for now and I am sure it is enough, I look forward to blogging with you other moms..

Its great to see you have a goals list! If you remain positive you will definately be able to achieve all these goals, and then you will be able to start a new list. I am also full time student getting the same degree as you! I definately know how hard it is to concentrate and study when you have a little kid around. Sometimes they dont understand or they just want your attention. But you can't put it off because it will only get harder for you to go to school! Your son will be really proud when you have your degree!
