I know long time no post 2 months to be exact. I am writing this in my college cafe waiting for my counseling appointment. Yes, at 29 years old I went back to college. I am a Marketing Major. I haven’t posted because truthfully I wasn’t inspired. I had ideas to write about but when I sat down to write them nothing came out.
Last night I was fast asleep and then I woke up all of a sudden with so much inspiration in my mind so I wrote a list of like 5-10 post ideas. Just now as I’m sitting I’m my college cafe eating a REALLY good blueberry bagel with cream cheese and a Chai latte listening to Joel Osteen’s podcast. The inspiration for this post came to me.
These last few years have been personally insane. I was so lost. It was like I was in a dark maze with just a flashlight trying to find my way out. And now just sitting here in my thoughts while listening to the podcast I see why I had to go through what I went through to get where I am. If certain things didn’t happen I wouldn’t be where I am at this moment. I have a STRONG belief in God and having a relationship with him. Lately, I’ve been spending more time with him because I know that this is the path he has me on and I don’t want to deviate from it.
I said about a year ago I will never go back to school ever. I hated school. I had so much anxiety around going to school being in class, I was terrified. My therapist suggested that I go back to school. In my mind, I was like yeah right. I had no idea for what so I just let that idea go. A few months later marketing came to mind. I want to learn about marketing. I know a bit about it but I really wanted to learn the basics and the business side of marketing. I started school with the intention of just getting a certificate.
“I actually like college”
As I went to my classes I decided I want to go forward. I want to get a degree. I actually like being at school. This time my school experience is totally different than my others. I think it’s because I actually know what to do and I’m older. I don’t stick out at all with the other college students. Everyone that asks thinks I’m 20-22 at the most. Thank God for good genes.
I’m really excited about transferring too. At first, I thought I wanted to go to an out of state school. I wanted to experience something different for a while. Denver, Houston, Georgia were on my list. But then Pepperdine popped in my brain. Pepperdine is my dream school. I’m still very open to going to any one of those schools but right now my eyes are set on Pepperdine. I have ALOT of work ahead of me to get into Pepperdine. I CAN DO IT!
