I must say, I'm rather proud of myself. I just finished my first college class, and I got a 94% average which equals an A. I think I'm off to a good start.
When I graduated high school, I hated school and couldn't wait to get out. That's why it took me until I was 25 years old to get into college. Looking back, though, I see the benefits of waiting, because I appreciate it more. Sure, I was nervous to go back to school after so long, but finishing this first class has boosted my confidence a million times. And finishing so well.... that was something I didn't expect, but have to say I'm totally excited about.
I used to be afraid of the unknown... but now, I think this picture sums up how I feel about the future:
My life is an open book. I can do this school thing. Heck, I can get my Ph.D if I want to. That's the beauty of it. It is all up to me, and my future is wide open.
I love my life. I love going to school.
