Happy New Year!

I'm so glad to be leaving 2013 behind! For the most part, this year didn't start off great, especially for my family. On Jan. 1, my mother's other sister passed away after suffering a stroke shortly after Christmas 2012. Then in July of this year, my mom's oldest niece died. That makes four deaths within the span of two years. :-(

I tried conquering my main nemesis, which was a particular college math course; however, it didn't quite happen in the spring, but I finally passed it two weeks ago! I'm happy to say that I'll never have to take this subject ever again!

I worked with two organizations and did some volunteer work for them this year. The first one resulted into a part-time job and the second one began this summer, but ended two weeks ago. The latter volunteer position was one I had been waiting for since I was 13-years-old. I'm so grateful for having been given these opportunities in which I was able to learn a few things from. 

Lastly, this year (once again) didn't bring me love--aka The One--but it gave me time to reflect on the good things that happened to me, as well as the bad things that happened. With the start of 2014, it will be a time for new goals, new opportunities and hopefully much more.

Have a Happy New Year...one that's filled with good health, joy and prosperity!  :-)

Good News Just in Time for the Holidays

Today I received some good news, which I had been anticipating for the last week.

I took my last final exam last Tuesday afternoon. This semester, I was enrolled in two courses: a work experience-internship one and a math/Statistics one. I had been struggling with Stats for some time now. Let's just say that the subject of math has been a pain in my side for as long as I can remember.

Anyway, so I already knew that I was going to receive an "A" for my work experience course since not much was required from it. But I was waiting to find out when my math instructor would submit grades for this course. Well, this afternoon I checked my email and then suddenly I felt like my heart was going to come out of my chest. I then logged into my student account and went to view my grades. As the next screen appeared, I looked at the grade and was so relieved of the outcome. I passed...finally!

With this good news, I can finally relax for the next three weeks until I start my new school. I'm also looking forward to taking the next step towards my future. :)

Happy Holidays
