Four months: The amount of time it has been since my last post. Uh...yeah.

My first semester of school was a learning experience that goes way beyond textbooks. Never again-and I do mean never- will I consider a career in computers. I changed my major one month into the semester.

I learned a little about life, and a lot about myself. I made some new friends and I was humbled greatly. Perhaps the greatest education is my renewed sense of determination. Reality can do that to quick swoop and your lovely little card castle of denials and delusions is scattered on the floor. I started my new semester last week and I am already feeling ten times happier in the pursuit of my new career choice. There are no words to describe the comfort of finding one's niche in the world.

Life has been a natural ebb and flow of ups and downs. But in the midst of it all my family has carried me through. Lately, Isabella has taken to drawing pictures of everyone in the family. Perhaps I'm biased, but my favorites are the ones she draws of me. My bulletin board I use for homework assignments is dotted with pictures of little potato people sporting googly eyes and crooked smiles. It makes me the happiest mommy of all to know that this is how she views me in her little mind.
