Free at last....for now.

Sorry for ignoring this blog for so long...this last semester at college has been a head game from the start. Good news, though...I just finished. I am the proud owner of an associates majoring in psych (or will be soon as they send it to me) and it was about one of the hardest things I have done so far. Lack of sleep, no social life, sore feet from working all night and not resting during the day (college)...all for a step up (a small step, but a step) into a world with a bit of a better view than the one afforded from the bottom. Don't ask me what I'm going to do next...sleep without an alarm clock is as far ahead as I can think at this moment. At any rate, I do hope to get back to using this blog more often now...stories to finish...and new ones to tell. Hope I have some readers left but even if I don't...I will still write as that is the balm for my troubled heart...and this past 5 months have seen very little writing...therefore my heart is in serious distress. Let's hope I can sort that mess out here pretty quick. Be back with a post in a day or so.

Wow CONGRATULATIONS !!!! You got your degree! That is such a great achievement .. What a long way you have come from a couple of years ago I have been reading your blog for at least 4 years now I feel like I know you (sort of) lol and I feel proud of you !!.. I remember your struggle to get to the USA and I even pitched in financially to help you get there .. So I am so glad for you that you have achieved this degree. Now you must take time to be really proud of yourself and all the hard work and sacrifices you have made to achieve this.
Hope your kids are doing well and I'm looking forward to reading your news again soon..
Take care,

I was excited to see a post from you in my Reader. Congratulations on receiving your degree! Very inspirational to read everything you went through to get back to America, and put yourself through college, while working nights and raising kids, and re-adjusting to life in the U.S. Awesome achievement!!

After you are well-rested, it will be great to read more from you - love your writing!
