today i received some new that caught me off guard, while i went to school to attempt talk to my director of my program about graduation, the receptionist told me he was out and there was another professor just down several offices. i went, it was my old professor from a class i had taken several years go, i never forget a face like his; he looks like a slim version of santa claus. lol i got to asking him a few questions i still had unanswered and attempted to try to enroll in the internship program, not everyone can get right into it, there is a special hold that the director has to take off in order to be signed up for it. he asked about my classes and let him know that i was ready to almost graduate and maybe finish by december. well he dropped a nuclear bomb on me and asked if i had known about another program that also was available but never thrown in the direction to students just starting off (freshman). it really got me thinking, all it is, is another two classes and a second internship and i would be able to receive two degrees. but i would have to stay another semester. i told him about my future plans and encouraged me to step it up a notch and dedicate myself to my studies if i want to follow through with this given opportunity. i am going for it! it is two degrees in a year, i have worked hard but not hard enough, i know this is my second chance at school and have to kick ass instead of kicking my own ass for not going to school, like i did a year ago. school is great and i like learning, i just have to keep interest and not get fried or burnt out of it. i have to go back on the ninth of august to make sure everything is in order. in conclusion the mountain is in front of me and now it is time for the climb. (reminds me of her song lol)

the climb begins O_o

today was crazy, made it to class and was learning new new things that I totally couldn’t remember after that was over went home. i felt shelby rumble, not in a good way while going home. checked it out and seems likes her insides are slowing down a bit, i mean 11 years is a long time with out any inside checks. drove around looking and asking for prices, everywhere wanted to charge me $1500+ to get rebuilt insides. which in my case wasn’t good. it was heartbreaking to see how much it would be to fix it. have to start saving to get her really fixed up. ran around so much that I totally forgot that my brothers gf graduation was at 4, she was one of the first ones to get called out and was hearing all the scholarships they were being offered and made me think, why when i graduated could they have said that about me, i know i half assed my way through HS but it has made the person i am today. i am in school now and will be working hard to be able to hear my name called out. i hope soon. in conclusion, no more playing around at school, time to buckle down and get to it, i aint getting any younger.

I returned back to work today after having the weekend off, I couldn’t help but think today was a start of a new month, which means new things to come. I am nervous and excited to be heading back to school, its been a year since I have been off of school, everyone always tells me that once you leave school for a break you never want to return back, that is not my case at all, I just never got help to go back to school, now I have it. with the support of friend(s) & family, I am here, being able to say thanks for believing in me. I am a nervous wreck though, my dad asked me earlier when I was starting and told him next Monday (June 7, 2010) and the butterflies hit my stomach like flock of bees, but at the same time am very excited to go because I am that closer to graduating but it is sad that I will not be able to help my dad out and that breaks me up inside because we are making a good team and not to mention how much I am learning about life and how everything works. in ending this, I think new things are ahead of me. my cookie says so.

to the nearing future O_o

today had turned out really PRODUCTIVE and GREAT. checked in with school for graduation and got my Summer 1 classes semi-locked in, spent a time with SOS and then had to go to work to help out as much as I could. 4 hands are beter then 2!!! was talking and chatting it up with my dad and his contractor came around and come to find out, his wife retired from what I want to pursue, I know that I need two letters of recommendation to move forward, she will be a good reference and need to ask for a second letter; the thrill of finding the next one should be a good game. finished up and safely got home and tried to relax a bit, was able to cool down but still had to do a bit more work before I could come to a complete STOP.

“In your ocean I’m ankle deep,
I feel the waves crashing on my feet;
It’s like I know where I need to be
But I can’t figure out,
Just how much air I will need to breathe
When your wave washes over me,
There’s only one way to figure out!
Will you let me drown?”

good lyrics, spoke to me so clearly. looked up the song meaning and means that we are taught that inspiration is just around the corner, but the problem is, it may not be until the next couple corners that we finally see it. Super True! it took me a while to see what I wanted and with talking and everyone’s help, I found “something beautiful” (my inspiration). Thank You to everyone it means so much, time to prove to everyone, well myself that I was lost and now I know exactly what to do.

to achieving big goals O_o

in these past 3 hours i have found out so much about ME and how scary it will be to accept this and finally move on to bigger and better things…if that is what comes next after GRADUATING. It has taken me this long with a kick and a needed shove to create a drive and push to finally complete this! I see what goes on around and I think I am officially ready to JUMP off the ledge and take a leap into the REAL REAL WORLD, where CAREERS are MADE and ENDED.

to moving forward,
