… grab some vodka.
Just kiddin’ folks!
No but for real now… I wrote a post earlier this summer about how I was super excited about new things to come. Specifically, my plans to get my associates in court reporting and move to Nashville, TN.
Everything was set… I was accepted into the program at MATC and had orientation last Friday. Then things started falling apart & I was handed not one lemon but an entire bagful.
ONE class would require 4 hours a day, 6 days a week. Oh and lets throw that on top of the finest public education available in Wisconsin and ROTC commitments. Not to mention it is my senior year so I’d like to have a semblance of a social life (which is why I’m doing a marathon during spring semester..clearly I thought that one through ladies..hmmm).
So I ended up withdrawing from the program after shedding a few tears. I’m still upset but I now have come to realize that everything will be okay–in time.
Now I will graduate next spring and hopefully head to BOLC (Basic Officer Leadership Course) immediately next summer. Upon returning in the fall I should be able to start the court reporting program. That is as long as I’m not handed another lemon 😉
So when life does hand you lemons.. don’t immediately go for the vodka. Instead wait it out and let God settle all problems.
