Well I registered for classes today.  I will be a full-time student next semester and I couldn’t be happier.  A little nervous but happy.  It will be interesting being a full-time student, a full-time hairstylist and a full-time mom.  I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to go to school at all.  I’ve been paying for classes out of pocket so far and am pretty much out of money for that.  The school got rid of their deferred payments so I would have to pay for my classes when I registered.  I was getting really depressed and everyone kept saying “Everything happens for a reason.” “Some things aren’t meant to be.” “It will all work out.” You know the kind of stuff that makes you want to go around punching people in their faces.  And then something happened.  One of those things when you say, “Whoa, is this a sign or what?” A friend offered to help me out.  A friend.  I woke up to a message that said he would pay for my classes and I can pay him back.  I thought about it all day long.  I don’t go around borrowing money from friends.  Ever.  But there he was offering.  The night before I had written out the class schedule I wanted.  I kept looking at it and willing it to be true.  That was my class schedule.  This is what my spring semester will look like.  It was too much of a coincidence for me to ignore so I accepted my friend’s offer.  I am happy.  Good things happen.  Wow.

So here I am struggling with 9 credit hours and committing myself to 12 credit hours next semester but it doesn’t matter.  I will do my best.  I am motivated.  I will make my friend proud (and pay him back).  I see myself graduating, I see myself getting good grades.  I know I can do it!  This will be my mantra.

On a side note while looking up books on Amazon because they are waaaay cheaper than in the college bookstore, I found out that as a student you can try Amazon Prime for free for 6 months and then its 50% off.  Hello free 2-day shipping!!!  So here’s a link to that…
