i finally think i might, just might know what i’m doing.


Laundry has gone unfolded.

I have not played my beloved Fruit Ninja for days

Every night I go to bed with 10 games unplayed (that’s not me)

I forget to poke my friends.

BUT…I have a job.

The day before school started.  I got the call.

A school that I’ve applied to for 3 years.


I was shocked, and thrilled.

Virtual school.  Perhaps my dream come true.

But my life?

It’s been taken over for 7 days with training.

My eyes are bleeding.

But…I am so grateful.

I get myself up to workout, to pray, to coffee, to hang with the boys.

They don’t have to get up at 6am anymore and get each other to school.

I get to do that.

They were trying to figure out what to do with the extra hour.

Gymnotes #2 says “I think I will just sleep”

Gymnotes #1 gives the fist bump in the air

when he hears I am cooking breakfast in the mornings.

Today I got my paycheck

I pay $48 a month for health care.

I have no gas bill.

I commute from my bedroom to my living room.

I am more than blessed.

“The way a team plays as a whole determines its success.

You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world,

but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.”

I wanna be on this team.
