College as an adult.

So this past week I have returned to the land of the learning or school in layman's terms.

I have two classes for this summer session.
I have decided to take only two classes to ease myself back into school-going so my transition into a full time fall will be a little easier.

One class in I find absolutely interesting: Human Sexual Biology. I am taking this class ON campus two days a week for 4 hours each day. Seems like a long class but it really isn't boring so I expect to do well.

The other class: Physical Geography although I find it somewhat interesting, is a little harder for me. I am taking this class online through the college's online class system. I think I am not that excited about this class because I find that I have to do math. I'm really not good at math and I also don't enjoy doing it. I am going to try my best though, I'll consider it -literally- a learning experience. Maybe math and I can come to some sort of compromise. Perhaps we had gotten off on the wrong foot the last time we were forced to interact with one another ;)

After a little speed bump with financial aid that I got smoothed out today, I am on my way to my future. I am hoping that I continue being as motivated as I am now and I hope I don't lose this motivation as I go on.

I'm sure there will be days where I feel like I am not capable of it but I will not let them get me down. Either way, going to school is definitely better than continuing work at my last job.

I will not take this opportunity to continue and complete my education for granted. I could still be miserable and sick instead of just feeling my brain growing bigger with every chapter I read and every assignment I complete.

The future is indeed wide open.

The older I get...

I've noticed that the older I get the more I don't let things stress me out as much. I used to worry and get anxiety about everything. I haven't felt that way since I quit my job. I hope that with some luck I don't ever return to that stressful way of life. 

I want to be able to be at peace and not let anything ever work me up the way my last job did. I never want to be sick again because I'm forced to be in an environment that offends my spirit and damages my being. 

I know living life completely stress free is completely impossible but I am going to try my damnedest to make the rest of my life as happy as possible. 

Life is too short to not be happy.
