My five greatest accomplishments

Continuing with our 30 things series is a post about accomplishments. 

What have you accomplished that you are proud of?



  • The biggest accomplishment in my life would have to be my kids. Obvious really, they are my entire world.
  • Finishing my G.E.D. If you have read my previous posts on bullying, you will understand why I did not finish high school. But getting my G.E.D diploma is still an amazing accomplishment that I am proud of.
  • Getting into College while raising my children. My first daughter was a baby when I started, and now I have been going for almost 3 years. It's not easy with kids but that's OK.
  • I grew up. Doesn't seem like an accomplish to you? Well, I have been through so much in life that just being here today is amazing.
  • Breastfeeding all of my children is an amazing accomplishment. Not many moms seem to understand the benefits of breastfeeding. I'm proud to say my children breastfed for at least a year each. (Besides baby girl, whom is still a booby baby)

What Is Your Dream Job, and Why?

When I was in Junior High and High school I never gave much thought into what I wanted to be when i grew up. Honestly, I thought I would never know. Stressing about it was not something i wanted to do. Yet, I did.

Here we are so many years later. I'm a mother of three young children. Also, currently in my third painful year of college. Seriously, three years and I'm still considered a freshmen. I'm not completely sure which bothers me more. The fact it has been three years and I'm not a Nurse yet or the fact that I'm still a freshmen.

Nevertheless, I am in college and I am making it one step at a time towards my goals. I love being a stay at home mom. Also, I love working. 

When I was 16 years old I became a C.N.A. There have been times of unemployment, but that is what I consider being a stay at home mom. As of right now I am staying home so I can also go to school. It just was not practical to do both. The last semester was a failure. But honestly who can make it through dissecting a cat while being pregnant? Somehow I made it through almost half of that semester, and had to drop it. My morning sickness was unbearable. Yet I hid it very well. The first 19 weeks of the pregnancy with baby girl were horrible. I did not gain any weight really until the third trimester. Which was OK for me, so don't panic. She was healthy and 7.6 lbs. 

I love children, babies especially. I have even thought of being a surrogate. Not sure how my husband would take that one. 

After thinking long and hard about what I wanted, and going through the notions I decided I want to be a Midwife. With my obsession over pregnancy, breastfeeding and everything baby this career just fits me. 

It will take 7 years of Nursing, and a Masters degree to reach that goal. Did I mention that I'm still a freshmen? 

Thankfully, I am almost done the pre-reqs for it. After this semester I have Physiology, Micro-biology, and a humanities elective. That is 2 or 3 more semesters. Maybe by then I will be a sophomore. Luckily I'm currently in my 20's and there is hope to make my goal before 30. Hopefully I'm not setting the bar up too high. 

With that said, wish me luck at braving another semester and cat dissection. 

What is your dream job?
