Cerra's Birthday Today!

Well, my dear wife turns 24 today. It's difficult to express just how grateful I am for having been blessed with such a wonderful woman. Cerra's intellect, kindness, selflessness, diligence and beauty are singular. Happy birthday, sweetie. I love you.

School

I have been in school now for a month. It's great. It's been too long since I have had this kind of intellectual nourishment, if you will. I am taking 7 credits this semester. I have a sociology class that leaves me pondering something about the complexities of society and human behavior every time on my way to accounting, where I have to switch gears and crunch and analyze numbers. After that, my body gets 'schooled' in my jogging class.

I attend these classes Tuesdays and Thursdays at the community college. It's so much cheaper there than a university! It was awesome to pay cash for a semester of school, and I will probably get it all back from my Indian tribe scholarship. The downfalls that a community college has vs. a university are well worth it for generals, in my opinion.

I think I have decide to major in accounting. It's the most practical and it's something that I would enjoy. If I had unlimited time and funds, I would become a vet, hands down. Where I want to be a stay at home mom and start our family soon, I wouldn't have time to go through school, and even if I did, I wouldn't be able to work enough (if at all) to get any return on investment there. I can do accounting from home and with kids if I wanted to. I have a knack for it and I really enjoy it. I am kind of a geek that way.

So here I am, back in school and loving it. I am still working full time, so it's a little tiring. It's well worth it though.

Dillon bought me a new laptop which makes it nice too. He's so cute. I wanted him to get his computer first and mine later, but he insisted. He still doesn't have his and doesn't complain a minute about it. He's also been a great support of mine. I sometimes have huge time and energy deficits, but he's understanding and encouraging, even when it affects him negatively.

I really like where I am and headed right now. I love leading a balanced life - family, religion, work, school, community, etc - and I am getting closer every day. Harmony is very crucial to my happiness, and the goal is beginning to be in sight.
