Everyday I Learn Something New...

That is the most important thing to me in life. I have so much to learn and I love learning new things from my friends and just people in general. I think I've grown up to be a respectable young man with a very understanding mind. I give a lot of thanks to my mom for that one and my dad for his patience.

I left college with one semester left to get my bachelor's but I was so scared, that I didn't finish. I'm literaly 12 hours away from my bachelors in finance. I didn't know if I wanted to do that for the rest of my life, and no one ever told me that I didn't have to, but get your degree anyway. I regret that sometimes.

I've been lucky enough to get a decent job now after working for a lot of ****** people in ****** jobs, but now I've found my calling and guess what... it's in finance. How ironic when you read the other paragraph. I'm poor even with a good job, thanks to debt I got into when I was married. I've been divorced for a while, so now the road to finding someone to spend the rest of my life with. I'm not in a hurry though. My family is poor but rich in other ways.

I love learning and experiencing things everyday and maybe one day, I'll be so lucky to write about them here and tell you about how I finished my degree, found someone to grow old with, and still loving my family. :)

I enjoyed reading this story. Because I'm there myself, I know you have reached a good point in your life, where the foundation is sound, you have experienced many of the uncertainties life can throw your way, yet understand that it's more about the journey than the destination. You are still open to learning, even after all you've been through. That takes bravery, and deserves recognition. Congratulations on continuing to find yourself, Grimace.<br />

As for the debt and the divorce, I have both of those, too. But, as you pointed out, many people in these situations are not actually poor. Petruchio, in Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew, said "We shall be poor in pocket, but rich in virtue and appearance," or something like that. It takes will and creativity to carry on with these burdens, and that makes you rich, indeed!<br />

No matter what avenue your life takes you down, do your best to take care of yourself first. If you do, I believe, people will be able to see and value you for who you really are.

Good luck to you!

Excellent... thank you so much for posting this.<br />
