1. I slept in a bed last night. I know that not a lot of people get to do that.
2. My wife's ability to make even the smallest thing you do for her seem like a world saving event. I was Super Man and Spider Man all at once yesterday because I made the bed and did a load of laundry...
3. My opportunity to get a college education. I know that a lot of people don't get this opportunity either.
Well guys, I'm not gonna lie to you. I'm remarkably ready for school to be out for summer. I know everyone says this, and it's probably true when they say it too, but you need to know that I really am. Everyday, I drive to the school with the windows down, I walk to the school with the sun on my face, I open those doors, walk in, and hear them shut, like the doors to a prison, after me. Now, I know that I could leave. I know that I could cut class, but I have these things called "a good GPA" and "a family," and those two things make it so that I don't want to miss class.
It's just this semester, then Fall, and then I'm done. I sign up for Fall classes on Wednesday. My Bachelor's is so close I can taste it. It tastes weird, like parchment, morning breath... it may just be parchment, the morning breath may be mine. Either way, I cannot fail my classes now. I'm so close to being done, and do not want to come home and try to tell my wife (let alone myself) that I have to take a class over again, therefore postponing graduation, because the sun and the grass looked too inviting.
So, I'll keep walking through what feel like prison doors for another month, because I want to give up something good now, for something better later, but that's what sacrifice is all about right? And that's what it takes to succeed, and I'm a succeeder... even though I'm pretty sure that's not a word. I can deal with every paper, and every test, and I will emerge victorious, because I am a succeeder. It's what I do. It's what I was raised to do. I can grit my teeth and push through almost anything. And Spring semester is no different. Here I come classes. You'll not beat me.
Anyway, I was just feeling a little tired and needed a rousing speech.
Have a nice day.
