It's difficult to keep a positive attitude all the time. Especially when 'situations' seem to pop up! My car has been at the mechianics a week....I had noticed puddles of oil whenever I'd back the car. Turns out, there were cracks in the oil gastic and radiator. Plus, there were several hoses that were also cracked due to the age....honestly, I didn't even know hoses needed to be replaced! I should get my car back today along with the charge.


I was to begin my class in Medical Billing next week, only to recieve a phone call informing me the class has been cancelled and will be getting my refund returned. It might begin again the end of February but I need to check with the school to make sure. To top things off, I've been applying for jobs only to come up empty handed. I knew it wasn't going to be easy but I surely wasn't expecting to feel stuck.


I'm going to keep trying.....can't give up so easily. I want change, I just have to hang in there. A good thing, Cirque du Soliel is in town and I will be taking my mom to lunch and a Cirque show Saturday afternoon. Helping me to take my mind off the negative and appreciating the positive.


Have a great weekend all.

These are just a few bumps in the is a very expensive bump! But, I'm not going to dwell on them. Since I want change in my life, it's not going to happen if I stop doing anything so I choose to keep trying.

I've thought about classes online but I want to get out of my comfort zone ~ my house ~ and actually get out to attend classes. For my sanity. Although, if this class doesn't happen, then online is an alternative I will seriously look into.

Thanks all.

Take care.


What other people think of me, is none of my business.

I would agree with Teck-set backs usually stink, but hang in there, you are on a mission to get school done and that is awesome-with the car, get what you can get done with it to get you to point a and b...With school, check into an online class at a local college or univeristy-I know here we have University of Tennessee and they offer online medical courses--try plan b...You and your mom will love, love, love Cirque du Soliel--a french circus that is out of this world....So glad you are staying focus and positive...You inspire me...peace, jen

  PMA always .. Disappointing about run of sour events Mark.. But things can only get better .. (and they will ) cirque de soleil amazing experience and will fill you full of inspiration .. You mum will love it also ..!!!  the car is your responsibility for lack of  maintenance and reading a manual on the thing and regular inspections will prevent it happening again.. Mechanical things need TLC ha! As for school , well you can try again in a few weeks when they re establish themselves .. meanwhile enjoy your free t ime with mum xxxxx
