I am Back and with Big News!

I am BACK!!!! I have some big news but before I get to that I want to say sorry. I know I said in my Merging March post that I was getting help to get me through march, but in reality I need to have more guest post for April as well. Because I did not think my classes would take over so much (as well as with some other life stuff that I will get into) the blog got put on hold. In fact, everything around the blog (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and newsletter) all took a back seat to my education. However, the fact that I am back means my classes are done (happy dance).  


First news is I am now a graduate! Well close enough my graduation date is May the 15th and the ceremony is in June (no I will not be going). That is right I now have my BA in psychology with a minor in sociology. I have now entered the world of full-time job hunting.

Second news, I am now homeschooling Noah for pre-K. I will be doing post on this every once in awhile. Before everyone gets crazy on the home school bandwagon I am not homeschooling Noah he will be going to Kindergarten next year at a school. Given my situation with living I find it will be less stressful for Noah and I if he is homeschooled. 

Third news Noah is almost 4, his birthday is in 5 days. I am already in tears about it. I cannot believe that 4 years ago I gave birth to such a wonderful new life. Noah and I are not doing much for his birthday money is tight. We will be making cookies and I have gotten him some fun gifts.

Fourth news is I am adding a sunday post. That is right I will be posting on Sundays again. The topics will be writing prompts and how I am dealing with anxiety and my language disorders (aka dyslexia). I have given a lot of thought to adding this sunday post and it is important to me.

Fifth and  final news is I am adding a contribute page for those who would like to blog. More details will be available when the page goes live.

  3. Sometimes we have to prioritise things. I don't blog like every other day but I make sure that I have a post at least once a week. School life can be tough and even more tougher if you have a job beside. Finding balance for work, school and my blog has been the most challenging but so far I ma getting into a rhythm. Happy for you that you are done with your BA. Good luck in job hunting.


    Have a nice day/evening

    1. Thank you, yes finding a balance was rough and when I would get the hang of it something would change. I am happy that I will not have to balance school life anymore.

  4. Why aren't you going to your ceremony? I remember thinking the ceremony seemed like a waste of time, but it ended up being such a proud moment in my life to know I had really done it!

    1. I went to school online so it is in another state. The cost of going would be HUGE, and realistically it is do able. Also I would not have any family or friends there so it would not be worth it. I am going to take some pictures I do think that it is important for my son to see that growing up.
