What's Going On

Do you ever feel like you’re just walking through life, not living it?  I've felt this way recently.  Life has taken an unexpected turn and it was so much change I didn't know how to process it.  So, I just went on auto-polite.  I'm finally coming out the fog.  I'm feeling better day by day.  Life is a journey of ups and downs.  I have purposed within myself to enjoy the ups and cry & learn through the downs.  

So here is a small recap.

School:       Made it through mid-terms. Finals are next week.  preparing for that.  I started a work-study job it ends next week also.  I decided not to take the summer off but to keep up the momentum and take classes this summer.  It will be interesting I will not be on the main campus but at the Community College campus.  The University of the District of Columbia has several different schools and campuses.  The classes I need are not offered on the main campus this summer, so I received permission from the Dean of my department to take the classes on the community college campus.  I also changed my major.  While I was gone from school my original department changed drastically. I talked to several about my goals.  We all agreed continuing in the department was not my best option.  A change was made.  I'm happy and as it turns out I'm further ahead with this new major. 

Work:         I had to take a leave of absence from my primary job Target.  I’ve been doing my work study job.  I enjoy the setting and my coworkers.  It was also great to have weekends off to spend with my family. 

Personal:     I started gardening.  I have a container garden in my backyard now.  I enjoy being out planting and watering.  Then watching and waiting for things to grow.  It can be very additive.  I find each weekend I want to or have added something new.

Socializing: I joined a club, MANNRS; which stands for Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Related Science. It’s cool, now that I’m into gardening.  We volunteer at community gardens or farms.  We have plans to do thing this summer with my school’s Farmer’s Market.

This post is longer than I expected; I will stop here.  That is a basic recap of

what’s been going on in my life.  I will talk to y’all soon.

Be Blessed & Smile
