Taking a step in the right direction...
Since the day Wilkins was born I have not been content with my job. Don't get me wrong...I make good money, I am good at what I do, and I genuinely like my job. The problem is it is no longer making me happy because of the kind of hours I work, the time I miss with Wilkins.
My goal before I had Wilkins was to become a GM and I have been asked numerous times to do so by my own bosses. But I have more than just myself to think about now. Whether I would be good at it or not is not the question...I already spend way to many hours there now! I can't imagine if I were to become a GM how many more hours I would be working and how much more stress and responsibility would come with that.
I have been talking about going back to school to get a degree in education because I love kids and it is just more realistic for me as a single mom. So I am starting to move in that direction. I start classes on June 17th to get my basic college courses taken care of. I have to go for about 18 months which is one night a week for 4 hours.
I know y'all are thinking "don't you have enough going on without throwing school on top of it?" The answer is "YES"! In the long run though, it is only going to benefit me and my daughter. I want to be a mom that can be involved in her school activities and sports. If I continue with the job I have that will never happen. If I get my degree then I will have weekends, week nights, holidays, and summers off. I don't know that the money will be as good but in the long run it is better for her and I. So I am gonna do it!!! And I must say I am pretty excited about it too. I feel like I have a new direction and something to reach for.
