Thanks for following along!
Let's start this post on a good note....
I'M DONE WITH THIS SEMESTER!
Now let's start the bad stuff, shall we?
After failing my College Algebra (yeah..huge ego booster right there), I decided that maybe I'm not cut out for the big league (K-6th). So I changed my major to Early Education, which involves Pre-K age and under. I think I'm much more suitable for that age group anyways.
Therefore, the majority of my classes that I've taken since January of this year till now, don't even count towards my degree.
I pretty much wasted a whole year.
Even though it was MY choice to change majors, I still feel like a loser.
I can't afford to waste time and I did.
I just feel like I'm letting people down, even though I'm trying. I'm trying to finish school.
And I just can't help but feel that some people see me as being lazy/not productive, because I'm not contributing financially to my family by having a job.
But I think I AM contributing.
Having a job involves daycare. And daycare is outrageous. And we are DEF not made of money.
Having a job and going to school would be nearly impossible for me. I just can't balance everything.
So right now, I'm hoping everyone bares with me for the next two years.
As I continue to pursue my dreams of actually finishing college and starting a career.
As I continue to raise my own children without daycares, just as I was raised.
As I continue to contribute to my family the best way I can right now, which involves putting everyone else's needs in front of mine.
Eventually, I will look back on this post and say, "Lauren, I'm so proud of you. YOU did it. You finished what you started and now your family can be financially stable."
So there's my soap box for the day.
For now, I will just use my motto:
|I didn't get this tattooed on my body for no reason!|
