Reflection & Moving Forward

As a new year is upon us, I can't help but to look back at the previous one. So much happens in one year and when you're in the middle of it all, it feels like time isn't moving. But before you know it, time has moved on.

2012 was probably one of the most challenging years I've been through in a long time. Yet, I learned that I can accomplish and endure more than I thought possible. Tony was gone for 8 months this past year. There were times I thought I was going to loose my mind. But we all survived and come out the other side stronger and hopefully a little wiser.

I also, found myself with new challenges at school. I've been a Kindergarten aide this semester and its been so much fun and stressful at the same time. Who knew the progress they make in a few short months. I can't wait to hear all about their Christmas break because I know they will have so crazy and funny stories. But, my time there is coming to a close as I will be moving down to the computer lab. I'm super excited and found where my passion is. And of course, my mom was right all along lol. I'll now be seeing every grade in the lab as well as helping teachers. I'm a bit scared that I can meet everyone's expectations, but also so excited. More planning is on the way on how to keep them entertained as well as creating a love for technology.

During all of this, I also decided to start classes. Things fells into place that i finally found what i want to be when I grow up lol. At the start of every semester, I freaked out a little over what was expected. But somehow, I completed each assignment and put everything I had into it. Two semesters done and came out with a 4.0. I'm still a bit shocked, but it's everything I did and didn't expect. Not only is it more expensive that I thought, but also harder and easy all at the same time.

So as the New Year is here, I'm excited for what is to come. And I know that whatever it is, we'll get through it and have memories and stories that will forever be in out hearts.
