    When I watched the film ' Made in

    Dagenham'http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcfilms/film/made_in_dagenham I was impressed about how an ordinary woman changed history. Her courage, persistence and downright nerve impressed me and I realised how different history would have been if she had given up. "Cope? We're women...

    Another One Bites The Dust

    I was told before that there is a 10% graduation rate in the program I'm studying. At the time, I'd thought, I'm going to be in that 10%. These days, I don't feel so sure. Another of my classmates dropped. Then yet another is seriously considering it. I think there are about 15...

    Mostly, Not Sometimes

    The main reason I usually lack motivation boils down to one thing. I'm thankful beyond words for friends - offline or here on EP. But I've been trying my entire life, from as far back as I can remember, which was before I turned two, only a short number of months after my...

    How To Get On With It?

    Sometimes all the things I need to do to get back on track are overwhelming, and I do not take care of business. Today I got some things done. It was hard but it was worth it. I rarely write this short of s story, but, I just ran out of motivation.
