Final's week is coming again! Lately, the end of the semester has become a bittersweet feeling along with the sounds a clock slowly chiming down. This semester has a opened a lot of doors, provided many new experiences, but it has also been very tough. A person's education is not easy. With all the increasing challenges at the university, I can definitely say I'm getting my money's worth. The Fall semester of 2010 will be the start of my senior year. I will also be balancing coursework with a leadership position within the honor society. I hope to pursue another solid position with the literary magazine. Somehow this summer, I have to find the strength to press on. I need to continue my research, and pursue my writing. I will also be updating my resume and finding a graduate program which will suit my career needs, as well as the needs of my family. I am going to look into applying for some internships. I thought maybe with the job market and economy in such a shaky position, a temporary position as an entry way to getting the door would be better suited. I honestly couldn't tell you if any of the choices I've made have been the right ones, but somehow I am forced to move forward into the unknown. No matter how old you are, the world is an extremely scary place filled with all these buttons and decisions. The wrong combination make for a tortured existence in life. The right combination always comes with a price. What is the going rate for success and happiness along with the white picket fence? Well, it turns out that fence looks fresh and cleanly painted from the outside, but rotted underneath. In the country, they would call it a fixer-upper. Could life be the fixer-upper? Are we not constantly putting fresh coats of paint over our injuries? Well, at this stage in the game... here's a piece of advice: Buyer Beware!!!!!!!!
I have an open door policy about life, love, parenting and the non-pursuit of happiness. ~ JK
