Goals & Dreams

"You are never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream..." -C.S. Lewis

I recently applied for admissions to a local university and I was accepted! I was so excited! After speaking with a counselor I decided to major in Public Relations. My ultimate goal is to one day work with a nonprofit organization (something to do with epilepsy, autism, or even TSC), and Public Relations seems like the perfect fit.

My next step was to find child care for Joel while I attended classes. I wanted to find a learning center for him to attend a few half days a week, instead of a day care where there is no curriculum followed. I toured 3 places in the area.. One was exactly what I was looking for and he seemed comfortable there, but wasn't worth the $599 a month they wanted us to pay. The other two centers were cheaper but not by much. When he turns 3 he will be attending a county preschool (for free), but that's not until around February. I'm hoping he will be able to transition into the preschool before the college Spring semester starts.. I'm planning to go for a 4 year program, so the sooner I can start the better. But I would hate to sign up for classes, pay tuition, and then Joel not handle the transition to daycare or preschool well and then I have to miss the classes.

I'm a little bummed that I have to put my goals and dreams on hold for now, but making sure my child is taken care of is my #1 priority. It feels good to finally know what I want to do as far as a career goes though!
