Today was the last day of my fall semester, And I could not be any happier. I passed both my classes with high B’s. I have not been in school for about two years. I attended college before and I could have finished my associates degree by now, but my life took a different route. It took the route of getting married and starting a beautiful family and would not have wanted it any other way. I would eventually like to attend school for nursing. Being in Japan makes it a little difficult to do any nursing programs. So, for now, I am just accumulating credits instead of doing nothing for three years. I will eventually finish school and walk across the stage. It does not matter how long it takes to get there, as long as I get there.
Going back to college after two years was tough. I doubted myself so much. The first week of the semester I had a breakdown. I started to cry because stress and feeling like a failure. I was so overwhelmed with being a mom, a wife, and a student. I felt like my son was not getting the attention he wanted and needed. I felt like my house was turned upside down. Getting a thirty-minute workout, a day was a miracle, if I was able to do so that day. My amazing husband was my greatest support system. He encouraged me every day and helped me with my stress. I would not have been able to get through it if it was not for my husband. Eventually, I was able to manage everything that was thrown my way. I do not know how all you beautiful mama’s who work, go to school and have a baby keep yourself sane. You all are amazing. For any mama’s who are in school or are starting school and feel like you can not handle it, do not let it get you down. It will all eventually come together and it you will start to kick butt! It all takes time, if you are feeling overwhelmed just take a step back, breathe. Remember you are all that and a bag of chips and you can do whatever you set your mind to. There is nothing wrong with taking a break from school if it comes really overwhelming. Like I said before, it does not matter how long it takes to get there, as long as you get there.
