Back 2 Business!

Posted: November 23, 2009 in Future, Life, People, Struggle

Now that I’m busy and doing stuff I finally have something to blog about! Whew!

Story so far goes some like…
I’m back at college now, doing a course in Business Administration. The plans I had set failed miserable and made me miserable w/ it! So I had to work w/ the “system” and do something, anything!
The course will at least help w/ getting a decent job next year (fingers crossed), then I can get started on bigger things.

Been real tough. Had to fight w/ myself and my ways b/c I really do take things hard when it comes to accepting alternatives to my own. That comes w/ me wasting so much time and energy bringing everything down just to suit my miserable, pessimistic self – I’m awesome at that!

However, God leads me through so many battle fields and, as much as I highlight the struggles, worse case scenarios, and whatnot, He puts up w/ it and never punishes me for my insults and disrespect of His works. That’s the tolerance I dream about having, trust me!

I’m enjoying the course now. Huge things have blossomed from this new direction, including being offered to be a PA for a Senior Director at my college after only a month and a half of showing what I’m capable of in my studies. Definitely huge! It’ll start out as a placement while I continue studying, yet, will help me tremendously if/when I further my education next year and it’ll also give a great reference in terms of experience. I’m looking to work on advancing myself by building a solid network while there – so butt kissing… here I come! Lol.

I’m thankful to finally get Shay into full-time daycare. The nursery loves him and he loves nursery. It sucks that I only get to spend up to 2hrs w/ him a day during the week. When it comes to the weekend I am so busy doing work that it’s frustrating as he needs my time and attention, but its so limited. Time management is something I’ve gotta master fast b/c I don’t want to allow these opportunities if it means an important area in my life suffers.

What else…. Oh Shayden is now 2y/o! ‘Twas his birthday 2weeks ago. I’m a year old, myself, as of the w/end. Being 24 feels no different yet but if does make me think a lot.

My first day on my placement is today, in a few hours in fact. I have to be there for 2pm – I’m guessing it’s an intro considering I’m starting so late. Plus, he know that the latest I can work ’til is 5pm to be able to pick up Shay on time…

Anywhos, I’ve just done some cleaning and washing up, work clothes are currently in the dryer – I left it ’til this morning to do some washing and decide what I’m wearing (there’s the time management issue…) – spent some time adding to my music collection on iTunes then updated my mp3 player, and now to find something else to do. 🙂

I pray for wisdom in the decisions I make today; not to allow how I feel about anything at those moments to have authority over the truths I hold onto.

    LOVE GEMMA and I am sooooo proud that despite everything you are just taking life by the horns and making it work for you. I know exactly what you mean when it comes to Shay, I have the same issue with Mayah I feel I spend so little quality time with her. But hey thats the life of a single, studying AND working mum, lets continue to find our strength in God and our support in one another. Heres to being Superwomen MWAH!

    Gemma, I’ve always wanted to ask why it seems like your friends have a similar name to yours??

    Anyway, when my father was in military and my mom had to work I was left in daycare and with family. But I knew that it was necessary for her to work a lot to buy food and other stuff. Yet me and my mom remained best friends and I didn’t feel any less loved. Shay isn’t too young for you to teach him what adults need to do in order to give him a comfortable lifestyle, plus he’s the only child and us only childs grow up fast.

    Hope your career life works out, I have no idea what a PA was and to be honest I thought that had something to do with nursing lol
