Approaching the FINISH LINE!!

So at this very moment I am now "Applied" for graduation! This may seam like a very little thing for most compared to actually graduating, but for me this means so much more. It means 14 years of straight school is going mean something. It means that I am that much closer to having a life-long career. It means that I've been doing homework and taking tests for 14 years. It means that all those stressful nights procrastinating, tears shed from bad scores, and tears shed for good scores where worth it. It means that there is a light at the end of the tunnel of papers, grades, exams, homework, and extra credit piled miles high.

I won't lie to you, I hate school. I love school at the same time. I hate it because it's hard, and it's painful. I love it because it means I am educated, and it means that I am making something of myself. Right now I am tired. Tired of going to school, tired of homework, tired of trying. But doing this simple thing as "applying for graduation" has changed my attitude. I feel like, "I can do this" I can finish school, I can live my dreams, I can work in the medical field. Granted it was a royal pain in the buttocks, and some nights I just wanted to give up and say heck with it, my parents didn't graduate college and they're living a great life, but I wanna do more, I wanna go further, I wanna see how far I can go in life. Plus in this day and age an Associates degree is equivalent to a high school diploma, so I need it!!

So I am approaching the finish line of one major goal in my life and it feels SO GOOD!! And I couldn't have done it without my parents, cause they have such high goals for me and know what I can achieve and I hope to never let them, or myself down. Most important of all I have to thank my Father in Heaven for the trials that made me stronger, the tender mercies that got me through each day, for helping me through each class, each test, and each study session... and for all the many new friends I met and the experiences that came with them. Life is good, it always has been good, and it will always be good... as long as I keep my optimistic attitude and keep moving forward no matter what!!!
