Moving On
More...

Just recently I moved out of my momís house in Bolingbrook and moved in with a friend in Chicago. I think itís a big step for me because Iíve been with my mom for a long time. But to me moving out has helped me grow more, and learn to do things on my own. But I canít lie I do miss my mom from time to time. Going from seeing my mom all the time to almost every couple of days or even a week is hard.

I feel like Iíve been not allowed to do a lot of things while I was at home. I didnít really get to go out a lot and I had a curfew. Now I can do whatever I want but still know I have school in the morning. I have a lot more responsibilities on my own. But in a way, I do appreciate how hard my mom was on me.

My mom helped me to be on time for things. Before I was beyond slow and the biggest procrastinator. She still helps me with things from time to time, but itís not as bad as before. Being at home was fun at times but I feel like I needed to fly. Now I donít really care about the freedom, I just like doing things on my own.

I like my mom being proud, and knowing I did it on my own is even better. I would like my mom to know that Iíll be fine but Iíll always come to her first. We still talk everyday but now sheís more relaxed because she knows that Iím fine. I guess you can say that my mom is moving on more then I am. I guess she realized Iím growing up.

Working
More...

I honestly want to get a job while I am in college, but I donít see how people do it. I am a student athlete in both the Womenís Track and Field and the Dance team. When will I have the time for a job? I know that I can try to make time, but I guess a lot of jobs arenít flexible. I had trouble and my last job when I was working retail because of school. 

I would like a job though because I want to start doing things on my own. I want to be more independent then I am now. I have this little job at the school but I want to work outside and expand my experiences. I want to work before I start my internships and be more familiarized with the working class.  I want to be more experienced.

When I get a job that I love I am going to work my way to the top. Iím not going to just work there because itís a place that I earn money. Iím going to make the most out of where I work. That would only be best or I would never be happy. Itís always a good idea to work your hardest. You never know what will happen because of that.

I wonder how many jobs I will have before I have the right one for me. I know I am going to continue to stay in school so that I can educate myself further. Itís always good to learn more than you already know. That way when you are looking for a job you will really know what you are talking about and have proof for it. Itís good to be able to back up what you say.

I just canít wait to start actually working. I want to work for a purpose and enjoy what I am doing. But I know it will take time and I will work my way up that ladder.

The Best

Friends, how many of us have them, friends, the ones that we depend on, friends! Safe to say I know I will have one friend who will always be on my side and thatís my best friend. This is a person I can trust and tell anything to. I always know that they will have my back no matter what, and will be with me through anything. That person is my mother.

I honestly do not know what I would do without her. She's my support system for anything and everything. I will never find a person like her. My mom is my drive to do well in school and in life. Without her Iím nothing.

She has taught me so much and I appreciate so much now. I love my mom more than anything in the world. Even though sometimes we bump heads, she will always be my right hand and bff. Sometimes I have to take a step back and look how lucky I am to have such a great relationship with her. Sheís a great mother and everyone should have a mother like her in their corner. Thanks mom, for everything!
