Coming back

I went away for four months and gained 7 pounds. I came back with a new goal range of 170 - 160 pounds. I started at 172. My goal weight is 165. I reached this goal weight, but I wanted a better BMI, so I lowered my goal down to 158, which is where I am at now. Well I did it again, I lowered my goal weight down, this time to 155. With a range of +/- five pounds.

With a range of +/- five pounds.

The reason I went away for four months was to finsh a college degree. I have completed over 100 credits from PSU over the past 30 years. I am the only grandchild on my Mom's side of the family, who has yet to earn at least one college degree. Even my nephew has a college degree. So last Fall I dopped away from SP to attempt to earn a degree. For the first time I tried an online course. In the first month I had to withdraw. My depression and anxiety got the better of me and I did not keep up with the course work. Also the instructor was an idiot!

The thing is though I 'failed', I have not given up on my education! It is just that I have to find the right field of study, the right school, and be able to cover the cost. Also I have to lick my wounds and regroup and wait till I am prepared to reach my educational goals. I have the confidence that I will succeed, in time! Right now I am focusing on my health and saving money for the next time I am prepared to reach for my schooling goal.

I was the step-father of an awesome son for five years. He had autism, and one valuable lesson he taught me was 'DON'T GIVE UP!' No matter how difficult life was for him, he kept on trying. With this motivation, that I learned from him, I know when I am ready, I will complete a degree! For now I have to be patient and find the right program that I can afford. Next time, and there will be a next time, I WILL return to college and complete my studies!

I have made the choice of what I want to major in, statistics. I would love to attend the University of Pittsburgh. I have wait untill the perfect time and fiqure out financing. I am just taking life one day at a time towards reach my goasl!

I have recently sighned a two year lease very far away from the Pitt campus, so in order to attend classes, I need a car to get to college, since buses do not come out to my area. I have not driven in ten years, so this makes me a bit nervous. Also the cost of owning a car is very expensive and I would rather spend the money on other things. I plan on wait untill my lease is through and then move to the campus and resume my education!

There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time. This expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.

Martha Graham

It's cool that your Aunt and Uncle lived in Columbus! We've been here for 13 years now. I love living here, despite the frequently crappy weather.

Hope you're having a great evening!
