    I Am Proud Of Who I Am And What I Do.

    Nothing gives me more joy in knowing that even though my ex told me I was stupid, and that I would never amount to anything, that I in fact will have my Phd. He is the failure not me. He failed out of law school. I worked for my grades and before that I served my country...

    Only when I am with the little ones I will be

    true to myself and give of myself to them. But the rest of the time, I tell myself I will keep my heart and my words. I will not fight the superficiality of the adult world head on. I will not be a martyr. The ones who do a thorough job will always be made use of by those who do...

    Just Not Every Day

    I am both hard working and driven - just not on every day .... can you be both driven and relaxed at the same time? If so, I can be both depending if I get in one of those moods or not.

    Not everyone can work 3 jobs

    and still go to school but I can and I have to say I'm proud of myself for being able to achieve that especially since I make straight A's. I just hate how I can't say no to work and Im always away from my friends and family and they're always upset with me because I'm working.
