My semester is over! Yeah! I'm so happy. My goal this semester was to make the Dean's List. I made the A's and B's necessary to get it, however, you need a GPA of 3.5 and mine was 3.45. How bad is that! Well, that's life, and I'm still extremely happy!
I started back to school because I was unemployed, so ultimately the main goal was to get a job. I got two jobs, plus I still have a couple of houses I clean. So I did accomplish that goal. I will continue with school, just not full time. That is so much harder than it sounds like it would be. I have a great deal of respect for anyone who goes to college full time, especially if they have to work or have a family while they do it.
The newest job I got is as an assistant to an Accountant. I thought at first she wanted me as a secretary, which was fine, but in talking to her the last couple of weeks, I discovered that she actually wants to teach me Accounting. Now I am really excited. It's only two days a week to start, but that's alright, as it gives me the time I will need to study the things she is teaching me. I also have my other job as a merchandiser for American Greetings to fill in the time and money, plus the two houses I clean. So, as my brother always says, "It's all good!"
I am very happy and very exhausted. I am also filled with a sense of accomplishment that I haven't felt in a long time.
