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:
