Sooo everyone has a plan for their life right? Things change.. things happen and a lot of times those plans get changed.. sometimes for the best and sometimes for the worst. This time last year.. I thought my plans were to graduate in a year.. well… An adviser mess-up (major mess up), a car break down, an ER visit and money shortage landed me home instead of in school. Don’t get me wrong.. I get to spend more time with Jesse and some friends I hadn’t seen since I left for school..but I feel like I’m never going to get it done. I feel like “why did I ever go to school when I knew I couldn’t afford it?”. But then some supportive words from Jesse and my friends reminded me why I went to school in the first place. Because I love to write and I want a career in writing. School is hard and so is figuring out a career you want and can live with. For the longest time I wanted to be a pro hockey player.. funny how that worked out. Writing and potentially coaching are the closest I can get to that dream. Basically my point with this blog is.. things get hard but stick to what you want. If you want to go to school… do it. If you want a certain job.. go for it, even if it’s hard. I’ve been thrown into a few rough patches.. but with help from those closest to you… you get through it. As always hockey rocks and I will hopefully have a Wild update up tomorrow before their game against the Coyotes.
