AWOL

Sorry, I've been AWOL for a little bit...school is so much work!!!

Let's see last week I reached an all-time low......

My television broke on Wednesday - which, when you live alone, really sucks!

My stat's professor accused me of lying, when all I had done was saved my work accidentially on my hard drive instead of on the mobile disk.

I bombed at the career fair I went too...it seems leaving the airline industry to pursue an MBA, WRONG MOVE, sigh.

To top that off, I had my first all nighter, after nearly crying with the amount of work I had to do...its all so much!!!

I shall try to be better about getting online, but it is all still overwhelming to me.

ps - having a bit of a crisis of faith also, why do I suddenly feel like God is pooping on me? Of course this had to happen now, right in the middle of the holy month. Go figure. Have a good week!

Sweetie, a very wise person once told me: God only gives to those what He knows they can handle.

In other words, God is not pooping on you.

You're doing your best and that's all anyone, even God, can ask from you.

Don't worry about us on-line. We're here for you when you need us.

Maidink is absolutely right, and we are here if you need us.

Last week was a rough one for me, and I'm really wrangling with my faith right now, too. I was in an emotional tailspin for a couple of days (I still feel it), and I had a sleepless night that led to a bad day at work. It has passed and I am mending. You will too. Just keep doing your best, then you will have no regrets in the long run.

Make sure you take a little time each day to rest your spirit. That's how you will reconnect with God. Sit under a pretty tree for a few minutes and be still, or listen to calming music.

email me if you want to sometime:

aww, sweetie. **HUG**

It may not seem like it now, but it'll get better. You are still a smart girl with a LOT going for you.

Might be work now, but in a few years when you are wearing a suit and working in the upper level then you will appreciate the MBA.

Oh no! How I wish things were going better!

It could be two things, as per my Buddhist way of thinking... either the universe is testing you and if you persevere things will flow along more smoothly or it is the universe telling you to do some soul searching to see where your path truly lies (perhaps another aspect of the test?)... either way, don't forget, in the middle of all the chaos, that your destiny is in your hands so worry not... you will be ok!

Hang in there kiddo! This is only a short time out of your life and it will be worth it in the end.
Remember the saying, "When life gives us lemons, make lemonade."

or it could be that "When life gives us lemons, squeeze the life outta them and throw them against the wall." :-)

I'm sorry that things aren't going so well for you right now - but as you can see there are many of us who will be here for you if you need a virtual shoulder to cry on . . .

Try to turn everything into a positive - prove those snots at the career fair wrong! No TV? Think of it is a nudge to get out there a bit more socially.

You are making a lot of changes in your life, and that usually hurts in a lot of ways, but you will come out of this experience so confident, so assured that no one will be able to rattle you . . .

Go Virginia Gal! You can do it! You totally rock! :-)

I totally understand you being AWOL.. school has to take priority. I'm not sure how much blogging I'll be doing once I start the nursing program later this month.

Hang tough, and don't give up the faith - you're going to be a raging success someday, I just know it!

Maidink - thank you. It is so comforting to know you guys are there for me - I can't articulate how good it makes me feel to know there are people out there rooting for me.

Merci - what an excellent suggestion! I do wonder if my busy schedule has also widen my gap with God?? I'm sorry about hearing about your crisis but glad to hear that it passed and you're mending, I can't imagine the blog world without my comfortable tea room : )

Tony - Thank you - you don't know how much I have to hear these affirmations, otherwise I really do start to get so negative. Hugs back.

Joe - thanks for putting it in perspective, I have to remember the long term goal, as my parents remind me..sometimes it is just so hard. sigh.

MizBohemia - interesting...testing me or is this where my path really lies...hmm...what could it be?? oh no destiny is in my hands?? Great so that means I control my love life, shoot, I'm responsible for this mess, hee hee. Thanks for being there : )

Brenda - hee hee, I like your second saying, about the wall and beating the crap out of them. It is only a short time and that is the only thing getting me through this..I think of Zach a lot as I struggle through this program,its like we are warriors together, in school : )

Random Kath - hugs to you, you're right, I must make things more positive, because if you put positivity out, there you will get positivity back. At least that is my philosphy. Thank you for the encouragment, you can't imagine how much that helps, somedays I feel so stupid, you're words help ALOT!

Laurie - If YOU think I'm going to be a success than I feel much more confident - I trust your judgement. Thanks for being there, I hope your experience with the nursing program is the exact opposite of my experience here at MBA school.

Geez Girl,

Take a deep breath, will ya!?

You are only going through what everyone else has at least once, twice or more times in their lives.

I've never even met you, and I have nothing but the greatest of confidence in you and your ability.

I know you will make it!! Trust me...and when all else fails; try this:

Picture your stat's prof in his underwear mowing the lawn...after you stop laughing, you'll feel a million times better.

Pax - ha ha!!! Thank you for the vote of confidence, I so hope I can live up to that : )
