My Dog Ate My Homework....
As a kid, growing up I would laugh when a teacher would say to someone, “Let me guess, your dog ate your homework.” My dogs do not eat my homework thank god but they do try to eat anything and everything from my desk in my office to the wall.
For two bulldogs with distended jaws, this really does seem incredible to me. They will discretely stand by my bookcase and nibble on the edges of my books, until I catch them and then they look at you with a look that says, “What? I didn’t do it mom.” Gunny will regularly steal things and sit on top of them so you do not know what she has, not pulling it out until no one is looking before she will begin to chew it to death.
Why do I mention them you may ask? Because every day as I sit here and write, doing homework or work they are constantly by my side. They make me smile inspire and enlighten me when I am stumped. Their antics make me laugh the most, whether they are pawing me for attention or stealing each other’s toys. Their calm presence helps me to focus and often find the answers to bigger questions.
To make college or life work its each of the little pieces in your life that have to come together to make it all work and make sense. At eighteen, I honestly wasn’t ready for college, I didn’t know who or what I was or what I wanted with my life. It took finding me first to figure out what I personally was looking for, and how I would get there.
I’m saying this because the answers aren’t always fast and hard, sometimes it’s those gray area’s we have to color in first to finally figure out where we want to go. The many threads have to come together to build something that will last a lifetime and be strong enough to survive. So if you don’t know what you want to be, take a class try something new until you find what works for you as a person. Just don't give up or give in!!
Its More then Just a Dream
- As a recently married 46 year old I am in the process of finishing my degree. Working to take care of my family and live my life.Blogging, working, writing, and chugging along like most of us. Who am I ? I am you, I am me, I am your mother, friend, the best and worst that we each have inside of us. I am a different perspective and find myself fascinated by the interesting moments in life.
