Follow me on my journey to earning a teaching degree at WGU Indiana. I'm not your typical young student! I am beginning my journey at the age of 42, with 4 children and working hard to achieve my dream. I began my quest for education at WGU on October 1st, 2010.

College in The Big Apple

My daughter is going to college! Wow, where does the time go. It seems like in only a blink of an eye she went from being a new born to a beautiful young lady.

I must admit I have been pretty much checked out when it comes to my school work. I haven't completed much, and I am trying to get back on track. It's pretty hard to see and write when your eyes are all puffy from crying. Yes I am one of those criers, happy, sad, excited, scared, you name it and I will cry if I experience it. I have experienced so many emotions these last couple of weeks, to the point I didn't even know it was possible to experience them all at once.

The biggest major emotion I have right now is the feeling of being proud! I am so proud of my daughter. She has a dream and has taken flight to catch it. I wish, pray and hope with all my heart that she hunts down that dream, grabs it, holds it and makes it come true. Not many people at the young age of 18 would attempt to do the things that she has done. She signed up for school, booked a flight and left with just the money she had in her pocket. We are hoping soon she will be able to find a permanent place to live, so any and all prayers sent her way for finding some housing, would be very much appreciated by me and my family.

My daughter has always been been a go getter, and no one has ever been able to tell her that something isn't possible. She always jumps in with both feet first and figures everything will work out some how. I admire her courage, and as her mother of course I always worry, but I know in the end it will all work out.

The picture above is her is in New York City! I can't help but notice the smile on her face, and her arms open wide to all the possibilities that life has to offer.I do believe she will take NY and the world by storm. God Bless my girl, and may all her dreams come true!
