Let me start off by apologizing for not writing any posts in like 7 months....And, Happy New Year's everyone!
Back in April 2019 I had started a new job, because I got fired from my other job.
Honestly, I never thought I'd be the type to get fired, but let me tell you all... IT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE!
I got fired for something small, for sharing some personal information (nothing sexual or anything). I shared one of my hobbies to students and I broke a code or I stepped out of the bounds by doing so. That's why I got fired.
But anyways, I got fired. I was devastated. I was shocked. I was sad. I was just in awe.. but I got over it eventually.
We are all humans and we make mistakes. I learned from it.
Now, I have another job. I'm a preschool teacher. I work with 4 year old's and I get them ready for kindergarten.
I honestly enjoy working with preschoolers, I've been doing that for like three years.
So after me getting fired, I also had to make a serious life decision.
I applied to The George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs and George Mason University's Masters of Interdisciplinary Studies studying Social Justice and Human Rights.
This was a very serious decision that I thought a lot about.
I couldn't go to GWU because it cost SO MUCH MONEY!!! GWU costs a lot y'all.
I went with GMU, but I was happy about my decision, because these two programs were the one's I wanted to go for.
So, I'm in my first semester of my Master's program, and I'm taking 4 classes (Which for a master's, 4 classes is a lot).
The first two weeks, I was completely overwhelmed.
I was also working full time. I was waking up at 5am to head to work at 6:45am because I work far.
I would also get ready at 5am to get everything ready since I went to school M-W.
I ended up taking myself out of one of the classes. After that, I felt so much better.
I didn't feel as overwhelmed and I felt like I had time to breathe.
I still headed to Starbucks like everyday (I am being so serious, I stayed at Starbucks every time I was not at work or school).
At the end of the semester, I felt a little better about my Master's. At one point in the semester I was doubting it. I truly did not want to study anymore, but I had to push myself. I had to think about my family, my cousins, my nieces and nephews, and myself. I wanted this so I had to keep going.
I ended up getting a freakin' 3.9 GPA.
Y'ALL I GOT A 3.9 GPA. I'm so proud of myself. I truly am! The fact that I got such an amazing GPA motivated me to KEEP MY ASS IN SCHOOL.
As you can see, I was very busy!
I'm back though and I will be very organized this year so I can plan to post a blog at least once a month.
A new year.
And if you don't know me I always make myself a yearly goals list.
Honestly, I try to make as many goals as I can and if I can accomplish at least half of what I wrote, I'm content.
It's 2020 y'all and everyone needs to start thinking about everything. About their lives.
MAKE GOALS Y'ALL
If 2-3 monthly goals help, do it!
I've created long term and short term goals, but I have also created a bullet journal.
The thing I love most about a bullet journal is that you create it. It's like a planner that is customized by you.
Making a bullet journal allows me to keep myself up to date with everything.
With the long-term goals I have many for different sections of my life for exmaple, hobbies, finances, school, work, etc.
For short-term goals I have small goals that I can accomplish in a month or week. For example one of my monthly goals is to finish a painting. A goal that I created for last week was washing my genny because it was DIRTY AF. I accomplished the goal and now I ride my clean genny :)!
As I mentioned, create goals and stay on top of your shit!
I hope everyone has a freakin' amazing year.
