School starts

I am so excited and at the same time so nervous about starting my last semester here at school. I will be getting my Associates degree in Computer Information Systems on June 1st. To me it is a dream and an accomplishment. I am so proud of myself.

My husband was dead against this. He told me, don't enroll. But I did what I thought was right for us, especially for my son. And you know what? I WAS RIGHT!! Ha, ha!! I did the right thing and we were able to afford it. Having the degree can only add to my options and the opportunities. How can it be bad?

As a gift to myself, I am going for a month long trip to Brazil with my son. It will be winter time there but it will be great for us, because we can spend more time with family. I just want to visit with my Mom and brother, meet my little nephew and have them meet my boy as well.

I am taking a Web Design class as well as Project Management. I am looking forward to this semester and will hopefully complete the degree with a 4.0 point average.

The Day After

Hey!! This is the day after I decided to start my own blog :-) Nothing much to report except that the idea of trying to find my passion or niche in life is coming on strong. I just started thinking about the topic this week. I have time in my hands to figure out where I want to be career/life wise. I believe that career is a main component of life; it has to be fulfilling, rewarding, challenging, and it has to excite me somehow. I am not sure what that is but I will be pursuing this in the coming months.

I have been listening to my favorite podcast: Donate Your Weight. I just love the ideas that are talked about in this podcast. You can check it out at

That's all for now.

Just Something New

I am trying out this blog thing :-) I like to take my time before doing new things like this - I feel more comfortable that way. Even though I have worked in the computer field for a while before staying home with my baby, I have always preferred to take my time with things, including technology.

Let's see if this goes anywhere. I am starting this year with the feeling that it will be a "banner year" for me. So I thought it was important to record it somehow.
