I can answer this question with a shout, “I am going full steam ahead to completing my classes and graduating!” I have been on this path for over 10 years. Why so long? I have been detoured by family deaths, divorce, being a single parent and doing my best to make ends meet so that I can fulfill this goal. Yes it has taken many years but I will fulfill this and in five years I will be teaching with my degree. I will be making more and able to afford a few luxuries. I will not be detoured from this goal!
In five years I am planning on working in a Kindergarten classroom and being DONE with college. I am planning on fulfilling one item on my bucket list-going on a cruise to Alaska and hopefully will be welcoming a daughter in law.
