Rambling I guess…

Ok so I missed my mark yesterday, but with two toddlers and an online education it feels kind of hard to juggle everything; but its strange how little things always seem to get you back into perspective of things.  Mind was comments left for a power point slide that I did for my current class.  It has been awhile since I messed around with power point so it took me awhile to get it together.  Several of classmates as well as my instructor said that it was really put together and organized.  I know, really simple compliments but it really helped me to get motivated again.

I have several people ask me why in the world did I choose Journalism and mass communications for my major?  Simple, you can go just about as far in this major as you can in Business Administration.  This way I have options for where and how I want to go but I also get to enjoy what I am doing.   It is really strange I can write a blog post, or an article, or something of that nature, yet when it comes to something like an essay or structured like that I freeze up.  Thankfully I can pull them off for classes but its like pulling teeth for me to get one written!  Which reminds me, I’ve got one that I need to be working on now……

Joining this challenge will be hard and enlighting all at the same time.  I know personally that this will wind up being very difficult, running a house, two toddlers, and school online will make it hard to keep everything running smoothly, but this is also going to help me in my schooling.  Why you ask?  Due to the fact it’ll help me in my writing skills, and build up a nice portfillio for work/career.

Like I posted in my Writer’s Block earlier don’t try to sit down and write a textbook article, write from your heart.  By writing from your heart you can learn new things about yourself as you through this journey.  I have learned personally that by writing has helped me therapudicially.

I have been writing since I was in middle school and over the years as I grew so did my writing.  It has gone far and beyond of a hobble, it has gotten into my blood, and that is where I want to keep it.

Challenge of 2011

Being a blogger on I have  joined up for the Challenge of 2011 in trying to post each day of the week.  They were right when talking about how there are some bloggers out there that start out in getting a blog set up, getting the background just like they want, and yet when it comes to post they go blank.  They sit there and stare at the computer screen, going “wow, what do I write”  People are scared to write about their personal lives and what is going on.  Yet you really do not need to write about your personal life unless you are comfortable to do so. Just write from the heart.

New Chapter

If you are in a dark time of your life and you do not think that you can get out of it, know that you can.  Know that there are people out there that do care for you as well as you can rely on God.  No matter how alone you feel He is there, watching, listening, guiding, and holding your hand.  I know this is true because He was there for me these past few months of my life as I tried to figure out what I not only wanted but needed.

Currently I am sitting here watching the movie Twister, and I realized that life is a twister.  No matter how smooth you think you have it, there will come a time in your life where it will be turned upside down, turn you this way and that way.  There will be dark clouds, thunder, and rain, yet, even after all of that you know that at the end of it there will be a clearing of the storm, a break in the clouds and you will see light once again.  This I have.

During those months of being away from the father of my children was when the twister was happening.  was when I was riding the storm out.  Towards the end I could actually see light, I could see my clearing in my gray skies.  There was several people who kept telling me that it was a bad idea in going back.  Well I say to those people, I love you and thank you for caring so much for me but I had to follow my heart and do what was best for my family.  Now sitting where I am, I knew that I was right, I have never felt more alive, more confident in what I was doing then I do at this moment in time.

This is where I belong, this is where my heart is.
