I’ve been living this college life since 2007 and I finally feel like things are adding up. Mistake one: attending a school and not thinking of my financial state, including that of those I am dependent on. Mistake two: allowing someone else to be at the forefront of my education, giving them the power to dictate 3 years of my life. Mistake three: realizing I had a problem and not putting forth the effort to make things better. This is my life and I didn’t have any knowledge of what was going on it. Everyday I was gambling on my future and hoped I came out as a winner. But I finally feel like I am where I need to be.
I had the worst wake up call this week. Being tardy for class can turn into so much more. No one wants an employee that can’t seem to be on time for work. I always used to hear when I was younger “If you’re early, you’re on time, and if you’re on time, you’re late!” Why couldn’t I have applied that principle these past 2 weeks?! I mean, I left early, took different routes, cut down on my bathroom time… But I still found myself tardy at least 2 times this week! That amounts to an absence! I would hate to be kicked out of my program because of absences. I REALLY WANT THIS! I have the drive, and I’m finally focusing in on what I want in life. I’m making a vow to step my game up, and if you’re willing to step up with me, in whatever area of life, do it now. Don’t wait on all hell to break loose or for someone to force you. You know you’re flaws. You won’t change them over night, but with the added effort you will definitely make a change. I’m not sure where this blog is going, but I feel like someone needs a little push… if so, we can push together. =)
