Love/Hate = College

I have a very strong love/hate relationship with college and I start back tomorrow after a three week Christmas break.  I have mixed emotions about starting.  I'm so excited to start new classes, but I'm not sure I'm ready for the busy schedule and seeing John less.  I think my attitude would be completely different if I was in a different place in my life.  If I wasn't married I'd be excited about seeing my friends and living the college life.  I just have to keep looking forward and trusting that I will be able to finish.  I look forward to the day John and I can have similar schedules and start thinking about expanding our family.  Until then, I'll be excited about learning new things and expanding myself as a person.  With that in mind this semester will probably be challenging.  I have six classes!

Preparation for Working with Families
Family Systems and Diversity
Global and Diverse Families
Principles of Holistic Health and Healing
Intro to Intimate Partner Violence
Gender Violence from a Global Perspective

I'm pumped for the subjects I get to study, even excited for the books I have to read.  I'll try to continue school updates throughout the semester :)



  1. That is quite a line-up of classes! Sounds really interesting. Hope it's going well so far. We'll be done before we know it!
