OH! Sprong! I thought it said thong!
You are finished and I go back Monday. Two weeks isn't as long as it used to be.
I couldn't take summer classes if I wanted to, they only pay for 13-14 credit hours a school year and I've got 12 already. I signed up for fall and spring terms next school year, but I seriously don't know if I'm going back and if I do, I'll probably have a different major, which means starting all over. Sigh.
Good luck with your classes though, how are they coming along?
They suck. They really suck.And this school is full of shyte too. But for what I'm trying to do, it is the most palatable of many unpalatable alternatives. I can take a break in 8 months. After that I will either start filming a movie or transfer schools. This one will not get me what I want.
I really had thought that by 55 I'd be settled in a job and looking toward retirement. Don't get me wrong, I love taking classes and learning, but this trying to find yet another line of work because mine is being phased out is starting to suck.
I had planned on being somewhere else, doing something completely different by this stage in my life. I really feel like this is my latest opportunity to achieve another goal in my career. And it is also another reason why I believe there is a higher power that is ultimately in charge of everything. There is not that much luck or coincidence in the world.
I have had to fight for everything I have achieved. Fight for things that no one should have any opposition to. Why? Some instances I thought maybe it was because I had been too pushy and demanding. So I back off, only to have people try to run me over. I have known for 30 years that my best situation is one where I can call my own shots. Not to become the type of tyrant that I despise, but to take on the work/projects that allow me some freedom.
It is truly amazing that it took being in a car accident and becoming disabled for me to see my opportunity. All of this happens when many are losing jobs and everything they own, I have been insulated from a lot of that. We have not lost a thing. All of our bills are being met, and no one is hungry. Then to have this opportunity materialize? IMO, that is nothing but a kind and merciful God that continues to cover me, that keeps a hedge of protection around me, that still thinks enough of me to continually rain blessings down on me.
Yeah, I still have to fight for everything but I know that, in the end, I have nothing but great success waiting. I don't know why I went there, I usually resist talking about my Spirituality. But I had to let that out.
Unfortunately, many of us have to re-invent ourselves. Some have to do it many times. I'm just glad I have the strength and the mental ability to do it.
