Spring Semester 2013 has come to an end

This semester is finally over!  Yay!  It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be!  Made some new friends that I hope to see around next semester.  Now that I'm done with my Spring Semester courses, I can focus only on my son and work.  It might seem like a small break, but for this mama, it's a HUGE break!  No more worrying about homework to finish, papers to write, quizzes and tests to cram for, and taking the bus on time.  This semester really built up my confidence in my career choice in Journalism.  I am always so hard on myself, thinking that I could have done better in my work, but the grades I received were really good.  My writing has improved a lot since the I got back into school after having my son.  This week wasn't as stressful as I thought it would be.  I mean, I did stress a bit, but I had more confidence in myself than I ever did before.  I think I am ready to to take more classes each semester so that I can challenge myself more and most importantly, so I can graduate soon!  I get so discouraged when I hear everyone graduating because I can only handle 2 classes per semester with work and a child.  This semester really made me think that I can take on one or two more classes.  I'm excited that it's finally my summer break but at the same time, I'm also excited to start my summer classes in July so that I can learn more about my career!  Call me a dork or a passionate student who loves to learn, but I feel like I'm a couple steps closer to that goal I call a degree.  

I like to dream big.  
To dream to succeed.  
So, when I succeed, 
I can also inspire.

Never give up.
The end is not so far.
Each day is a step closer
to happiness and success.

Failure is not an option.
Learn from your mistakes.
There is no wrong turn in life
when everything can be fixed.

Your life is in your own hands
to mold into brilliance.
So, it's never too late
because any goal is reachable.

I am inspired by others
by their success.
So, in turn, I choose
to desire to inspire.

  2. Thanks! Being a student makes me feel like I can still learn new things. It also gives me a feelings of accomplishment when I can excel at tasks or exams. It is just a new feeling other than everyday accomplishments!
