I made it through this semester. Today was my last day of this semester. Looking back, if it was NOT for the GRACE of God - I would not have made it through (any!!) the first 8 weeks of this semester! I was in so much pain and discomfort with the surgeries and the stent..
I had doctors, my counselor, and family tell me to drop a class, not to push myself. I started out with four classes... full time... 15 credits..... one was online and only 8 weeks long in the beginning of the semester.
I was suppose to be graduating - RIGHT NOW... I am one credit short. No I am not sorry! No I do not regret anything that I have done or not done. That one credit was a miscount on my counselors back in October! I am OK with that! I am moving ONward and forward! I will be done in July.
As I left the building today, I cried. My favorite professor, Mr L. IKamas has been battling cancer, he was the ONLY professor I took twice! He teaches logic and philosophy. The only conclusion that I came to know in logic, I am the most ILLOGICAL person - because I am a person of FAITH. The only conclusion I came to know in philosophy, MY PHILOsophy is NOT your philosophy and YOUR philosophy is not my philosophy. If you talk to a philosophy major, he would tell you this statement is WRONG! and I would Laugh Out Loud! LOL ... because philosophy is the LOVE of Wisdom. I consider myself a student of wisdom; as in all things I look for the lesson that I should learn, the things that should teach me, the things that should make me think outside of the box, extending myself in situations that I am not comfortable in - meaning stepping outside of my comfort zone.
When I was younger (34 ish) I said I wanted to be a student my entire life, because I love learning. Being a student of life is a choice.
God Bless you!
