I have decided to take that leap and go back to school. I have been mulling over the idea for some time now and can honestly say I am excited about the idea of being able to earn my degree and make something of myself and my future. After years of working in jobs that only manage to help me scrape by on a lousy income I realized that the only way I was going to get out into the world and actually have a career was to get back to school. So here I am finding myself in a new chapter of my life. I am starting today like it is the first day of the rest of my life. I know that it is going to take a lot of hard work, dedication, and possibly some sleepless nights studying but I am perfectly okay with that. I am ready for the opportunity to better myself and actually accomplish something that will help secure a better future for both myself and my family. Once I earn that degree I will be able to kiss those dead end jobs goodbye and welcome with open arms the ability to finally be in a career that actually affords me a better future. A wise person once told me the key to my future was knowledge and knowledge is what will help open doors that are otherwise closed. I did not realize how right he was until I found myself struggling day in and day out just to make ends meet. Going back to school to earn a degree is going to help me gain the knowledge I need to open those doors so that I can actually say I am happy with what I do to earn a living.
