Hmmmmm.........it's very dark in here.
Is that a tiny little speck of light that I see at the end of this really looooooooooooooooong tunnel that I have been in for the last 4 1/2 years???
Yep. It sure is.
I have been going to college for my Business Management degree for so long that I can hardly remember a time when I WASN'T going to school on top of working on top of having a family on top of everything else that life brings on a daily basis.
I think I must be nuts to be doing this at this point in my life, but I just couldn't see myself getting anywhere without that all-important piece of paper in my hand to prove whatever it is that a degree proves to people.
I think it proves that I am a raging IDIOT for taking on so much at once.........or the fact that I can start a project and still be doing it 4 1/2 years later, so I must have persistence........or that I must be really good at multi-tasking. Or something.
So, at the beginning of it all I had like 700 classes I had to take (actually, it was closer to 40 but it has FELT like 700). I always thought, "Man will it be cool when I get into the single digits".
Well........not including the class that I am currently taking which is over in 4 short weeks I officially have 9 classes left.
I have made it into the single digits.
Yes, I am happy about that, it is for sure a great milestone in my schooling........but these last 9 classes will take a year and a half to complete. So I am not exactly THERE yet......but I can see the end.
And thank goodness because I was beginning to get that itch......you know......the one where money and a career really don't matter and I could learn to be happy working at the Burger King.
Yep..................thank goodness for that little tiny light. I don't think I would look good in a paper hat.
